On March 16, 2019, Deb and I were in Beaumont, Texas, as guests of the Sons of the Republic of Texas. We attended an award luncheon where Lust for Glory received the Summerfield G. Roberts Award, “for the most outstanding contribution in the year 2018 to the history of the Republic of Texas.” I accepted a beautiful certificate mounted on a wooden plaque, the SGR medal, and a check for $2,500.
Following the awards luncheon, I signed books. The Sons bought thirty-two copies of Lust for Glory! It was far and away the best book signing I’ve ever had.
My thanks to the Sons for their conviviality, hospitality, and generosity.
God Bless Texas!
