First Americans Museum, The Flower Shop Winery, Sizzle N Spice – September 2021 Episode of Uncovering Oklahoma

In the September episode of Uncovering Oklahoma, we start with a preview tour of the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City, which we got to see before the museum opened to the public. Then I traveled to Yukon to visit The Flower Ship Winery, a winery that’s also a pizzeria along Route 66. Finally, I visited the Halal Pakistani Restaurant, Sizzle N Spice Kebab Grill in Oklahoma City.

I edited this episode differently, mixing tours with the interview. Early feedback has been positive, saying the editing style made the video more dynamic. I’ll be sure to do this style again in the future when possible.

Thank you for watching this month’s episode of Uncovering Oklahoma! If you want to support me and get a cool t-shirt too, check out the Uncovering Oklahoma Store for unique Oklahoma-themed merch. 

Thanks to my superstar supporters, Revolve Productions, and the Keller Kenton family, as well as all of my supporters on Patreon. If you love what I’m doing, please join me on Patreon for bonus content, early access to new episodes.

Cover Reveal: The 16th Phoenix Universe Vol 1

I’m excited to reveal the cover for my next book, The 16th Phoenix Universe, Volume 1. With over 30 short stories, this collection follows the lives and mysteries of various people on Earth and other planets. A huge thanks to Janine De Guzman for bringing the cover to life! Inside the phoenix are four major characters seen throughout the collection, Detective Psychon, Gia, Loki, and Raven.

I wrote these works of speculative fiction during 2020 as a personal goal to write a new short story every week. I’m in the process of doing another pass at my stories as I feel I’ve gotten better throughout the year and I’m also correcting details as I’ve fleshed out my fictional universe. My goal is to release the book in print in October/November.

Thank you for all your support! I’ll keep you posted on the release date as I get closer to finalizing everything.

Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge Merch

For September’s design at my store, we travel to the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge. Found in Oklahoma City, Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge is a beautiful place for kayaking. You can rent a kayak at the Lake Overholser Boathouse to see for yourself. Head over to TeePublic to buy this as a t-shirt, hoodie, mug, sticker, and more!

Thank you to Janine De Guzman at Design Pickle for bringing this design to life based on my photos.

Creative Burgers Vol 3 Route 66 Edition

Justin Coleman and Undrell Maholmes are back for burgers, melts, and other delicious food. This time, we traveled along Route 66. For our first stop, we visited Robert’s Grill in El Reno where Edward Graham made us a double-meat onion burger and a hotdog with slaw. We took a break for some coffee and drinks at The Red Bird Coffee House in Yukon before our second restaurant. Executive Chef, Randy Williams, at The Lokal in Yukon brought out his fried deviled eggs and the lokal club. For our final stop in Luther, we tried Farmstead Cafe’s signature burger made with their own local beef and a beanless take on a veggie burger they named the inconceivable burger.

In other news, I’ve launched an online merchandise store sporting designs from my fictional works as well as some fun Oklahoma-themed shirts.

Thank you for watching this episode of Uncovered in Oklahoma. We had originally planned to a Route 66 burger episode back in April of 2020, so we’re glad we finally got to do it. Thanks to my superstar supporters, Revolve Productions, and the Keller Kenton family, as well as all of my supporters on Patreon.
