IMPORTANT NOTICE: Next Sunday, Dec. 23, just before Christmas, we will introduce the cover for The Presidents Club. It was designed by Jeff Bennington and features one of the main characters, John Hixon along with...well, wait on the surprise. Right here. Next Sunday.
Now on to SSS...
Many of the conversations, plans, and character development occur in the Louisville Tavern. For the book, I've chosen to locate this "old man's bar" in Marietta, GA. This venue is modeled after a real bar back in Louisiana. Watch for a blog about it soon. This scene sets the tone for much of the action to follow and of course, happens early in the book.

The Six Sentences
Louie the bartender had a sawed off shotgun under the bar. His finger was on the trigger as he spoke to the man seated near the door. "We've heard enough of your foul mouth and we're sick of your dirty jokes. It's time for you to pay and go."
The patron with the ugly laugh stood and looked around the bar for a victim. Then, his eyes shot daggers at Louie, he threw a ten-dollar bill on the bar, and said, "Don't go home alone."
