Progress Report

Progress report

 I will not have a plant post up this week and probably not next week because I am spending my writing time working on another site to introduce Redemption for a Redneck, the second in what I propose to be The Redneck Trilogy.

 A lot of people have told me how much they enjoyed Requiem for a Redneck and if you are one of them you will like the new book even more—I guarantee it.

 The files for Redemption have been sent to the printer and the book should be available soon. I’ll tell you about it right here on Johntheplantman. The story started in my mind as I looked at one of my favorite pictures of me, my wife, and Speck the coon dog. My son, Paul, came in one day with a true account of a bunch of rednecks on a coon hunt that ended up in a gated community and the story started to take shape.

 Here’s what Raymond Atkins has to say:

In Redemption for a Redneck—the sequel to the award-winning Requiem for a Redneck—John P. Schulz reunites us with John the Plant Man and Kickstand as the two men continue their philosophical examination of the unique culture of rural Georgia.  Schultz is a natural storyteller, and he treats his subject with kindness and respect.  His characters—Boss Jack, Pork Chop, Brickyard, and Roadkill, to name but a few—will entertain readers of all ages.  Mark Twain, make some room; you have company.  John P. Schulz has arrived, and he intends to stay awhile.–Raymond L.Atkins, author of The Front Porch Prophet and Sorrow Wood.

 And here’s the picture that started the story. I’ll see you in a week or two. All is well



The premise was: "What if a coon dog brought two people together through adversity?"
The premise was: “What if a coon dog brought two people together through adversity?” The answer is funny and intriguing.

Stay in touch. I’ll announce the arrival of the book soon.

As usual, I would just love for you click here to go to Amazon and purchase the ebook edition of my wonderful book, Requiem for a Redneck to go on your Kindle. I have also noticed that Amazon now has a free Kindle app for iphones and tablets. Is that cool or what?

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at
