I am excited to announce that my novel Silas LaMontaie (and I) have been accepted into the 2021 Kentucky Book Festival to be held in November of 2021. Sponsored by The Kentucky Humanities Council, it is a juried event and I am honored to be accepted.
I’m so happy to see readers enjoying my latest novel, The Path of Rainwater:
Old Man Rainwater walks very real Southern roads, but he takes you to mysterious places. The characters will compel you to read their stories–still, you will find yourself pausing to ponder the larger thoughts that float behind them. Take your time–reading Larry Weill’s work is worth it.
–Rhonda V. Wilcox, editor of Slayage
I will be signing books for local readers at the Kuttawa-Lyon County Farmer’s Market from 7:30-11:00 this Saturday 8/17/19. Please come by and say hello!
The Path of Rainwater is out! Available wherever you buy your books. The Path of Rainwater reveals a modern America that Huck might recognize—brutal, cruel, and sometimes kind—as Rainwater, an aging drifter, tries hard to leave as little trace of himself as he can. Fear and guilt drove Rainwater away from family and home years ago. His travels since have been like that of nature’s rainwater: always seeking the easiest course, always moving downward under the power of fateful gravity. Now he spends his days looking for a place to sleep, a meal to eat and a reason to go on. A man is more than a culmination of his past, though, and Rainwater knows that he has the power to change his course. But will he?

Here is a nice article about my upcoming novels and my writing process. It is a pay site.
My latest novel, The Path of Rainwater, releases in August 2019 from Adelaide Press. It’s a picaresque tale of a drifter, running from his past as well as his future, as he travels across the United States. About freedom and loyalty, it is as much about the people he meets as it is the protagonist. I think you will enjoy it!
There have been some additions to both the Drawings and Sculpture pages (The Shelterers was completed this week, in fact). Please enjoy
Thank you for coming by. As you can see, there has been some progress, but websites are not my forte, so it has been a bit of a learning curve. Please come back soon for more updates.
Thank you for visiting my humble portfolio. I am excited to show you my art and explain what I do. But you’ll have to forgive the mess, for now. I promise we’ll get things straightened away post haste.
Thank you again for stopping by.
