Vacca Territory

In Yukon, Vacca Territory crafts handmade small batch Italian semifreddo (ice cream), specialty coffees, cinnamon rolls, breakfast sandwiches, scones, muffins, cookies, and more. In this interview, Mike Gray talks about the creamery and coffeehouse located on Route 66.

I personally had both a mocha and the peanut butter ice cream, which you can see pictured in the video thumbnail. They were delicious! If you find yourself in Yukon or doing a Route 66 road trip, give the whole building they’re in a visit. There’s another restaurant, Yocal, that I’ve heard good things about, but they are in the process of moving to a bigger spot in the same building, so there may be another story soon.

Oklahoma State Fair Food of 2017

On the opening day of the 2017 Oklahoma State Fair, I tried out some different foods, wandered around, and meet with eight different food vendors. Get hungry for the bigger, better, best Oklahoma State Fair.

I only ate the tacos and mac-and-cheese. Both were awesome and I can see why the tacos won the award for best new food. I also walked over 15,000 steps.

Hope you have fun at the fair!

This photo was one of those once in a lifetime opportunities. This skyline is actually on the east, opposite of the sunset on the west.

The Crashing of Heaven and Hell Cover Session

Today I had a photo session with Carolina Gonzalez to model as Cassie/Virus for the cover of my book, The Crashing of Heaven and Hell. It was a great shoot. I’m still trying to make up my mind on the cover, but here are three great pictures.

Right now, I’m waiting for some feedback on the book from some of my friends to make sure everything makes sense and that there are no plot holes. Once I hear back, I’ll do one more revision and have it edited. YAY!

Also, possible book description:
It was so beautiful, yet so terrible, to see the crashed islands of Heaven and Hell naked on the planet’s surface. To blurt out how and why would be a great insult to everyone involved. To be truly enlightened, or entertained if you’re an Atheist, you must know the series of events that happened on the day Heaven and Hell came crashing down. Follow the normal lives of several people on the Green Planet as they deal with vengeful actors, kidnapping robots, making a documentary, a disappearing moon, scavengers in space, a zombie rights protest, and the Gods’ schemes to cause the planet’s heaven and hell to crash on the surface. Take an amazing journey on Hell’s wicked roller coaster, fly with angels in heaven, shop in a futuristic mall in the shape of a crystalline horse, run from a giant three headed dog on a hover board, meet some fascinating people, and get involved in the Gods’ drama in Dennis Spielman’s book, The Crashing of Heaven and Hell.

Next Book: The Date Idea Book – Sneak Peek

The next book I’m working on releasing in January will be Uncovering Oklahoma’s Date Idea Book. If the name seems a bit different, it’s because it is different. I’ve found out that when I talked about the date guide book people thought I had wrote a “dating guide” book with dating tips. So, yes, I’m changing the title based on very “expensive” marketing research.

The awesome thing about the date idea book is the totally different layout and I’m excited that it will be printed. I already have one business interested in selling copies. As for the book’s progress, I only have the Oklahoma City section converted to the new format, so I still have some work ahead of me.

I wanted to take a moment to share a status update. Keep on the look out for it in January!
