The Bookshelf, Young Texas Reader, Blog Notes, & Texana Youtube Channel

The Texas Bookshelf is for single, specific books' reviews and author interviews . The Texas Parlor ranges more broadly than my other websites. The Young Texas Reader focuses on the youngest through teenagers. Texas Blog Notes surveys blogs of historical and literary interest.

Mockingbird Books Publishers

Mockingbird Books is project of the Texana Foundation
"Mockingbird Books is a micro-publisher of adult non-fiction about Texas. History, nature, memoirs, essays, regional guides and other creative non-fiction.
Our purpose is to promote interest and excellence in Texana non-fiction. We are the publishing imprint of The Texana Foundation, a Texas non-profit corporation. In addition to publishing, the foundation hosts innovative book events that explore the rich heritage and culture of Texas.
Our first three books are all by Jefferson Morgenthaler, an award-winning author and founder of The Texana Foundation. Having seeded the foundation with those titles, we are actively seeking submissions from other authors. Look for new titles in the coming months.
We're doing this because quality trade publishers of Texana have virtually disappeared. As the publishing community shrinks, the ranks of readers and writers may thin. A vibrant Texas publishing community is an important element of preserving what makes Texas special."
To date they have four books Boerne, The German Settlement of the Texas Hill Country, La Junta de los Rios, and The River Has Never Divided Us.
