Happy July 4th Weekend to Everyone!



 American beauties at a recent rodeo in    Dahlonega, Georgia. Such a treat to be there!


And special congratulations to the winners of our 3-free book giveaway:

1.) maemoo1957

2.) tlwilliams115

3.) pbrowne1

(If each winner would please send me their mailing address by using the contact form at http://www.lesliebasilpayne.com/contact/  I will happily send the books on their way!)

I so appreciate the interest and support of the many people who signed up for the giveaway, and only wish I could give copies to everyone.

However, if you buy a copy of The Legacy of Nobody Smith you can help change a life! Proceeds from the sale of all books will benefit ministry of

Dr. Tony Evans at The Urban Alternative


The Helping Up Mission of Baltimore.

It has been exciting to already see book sales turn into dollars for these ministries. In early August I will post the amount of money donated to date.

Thanks again, and happy summer reading to all!

Grace & Peace,
