More About Denniger
Donald L. Buford
He's been called the James Joyce of our generation! Donald L. Buford's first book, Sex, Drugs & a Rock Band, Book One will become a cult classic. It's a look at the music business from the inside out. Compared to Hunter S. Thompson in his outrage and gutsy appeal, Don's Sex, Drugs is funny as hell, a true slice of life in the music industry of the early 1970s of Kent State and Woodstock. Somehow Don remembers (he thinks) all the little details of that era, despite ingesting mass quantities of booze, drugs and groupies. A day-to-day excursion through the crash pads and side streets of a little southern town.
This autobiographical "writer's copy" is un-censored, un-edited, free-flowing, a true Gonzo recollection, and if you are a fan of sex, drugs, and/or rock & roll, you will find Sex, Drugs Book I, as good a representation of what transpired in those golden days of yesteryear as you are ever going to find.
His website is on-line and full of all sorts of stuff, and if you'd like a copy, please go to the Javelina Books Order Page in this website or click the "More About Don" link below to order from Don. It's a book that tells it how it really, really, was.
Don says he'll keep writing until he completely chronicles the 1970s. His second book is about what the rest of the musicians (rock & rollers) were doing in Austin, Texas when Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings & the gang took over the music scene. The title for this work is Austin, Texas. The Willie & Waylon Years - 1974 - 1976 - From The Rock & Roll Side of Town . This long awaited book from Gonzo Don is now available on Kindle and will be available in paper form before the Christmas season 2012.
More About Don
Lester's new book The Violets Are Mine - Tales of an Unwanted Orphan, is a memoir of his life growing up in an orphanage and in foster care in World War II England. It has taken him over 30 years to get this book to print, beginning to be told when he was a tour director in England as he related tales from the events and experiences of his childhood to the captive audience on his tours.
What he went through as an orphan was so touching, yet at times so dismal and heart-wrenching, it is hard to relate to some of it. For a glimpse of what transpired in those days, the book is not only his life, but as well a personal look at a bygone era. Rest assured it will warm your heart and clear out your tear ducts and roll you in the aisles with laughter.
Pour yourself a snifter, a shot, or a cup of tea to warm you, light a fire in the fireplace, put on your robe and slippers, grab a box of tissue, and begin Lester's journey.
Lester is restructuring his memoir series so that Violets will be Book I and Book II and is currently writing Book III (not yet titled) which continues where Violets left off with Lester joining the Royal British Army.
We are fortunate that Lester has reissued a classic book of his called Did You Knows? of England which covers just about everything you'd need to know about his home country, all the little-known facts and trivia of that great country.

John's new book is called Funny Man although published by Javelina Books in e-books form is only available on Kindle, and cannot at this time be ordered on this website. So, go to kindle.com and search for Funny Man.
Redheaded Randy Ralston, a popular game show host and comedian, stands atop the Hollywood galaxy. Everybody loves him. He's America's funny man...UNTIL his wife Yvette ends up dead on his agent's couch. He's the number one suspect, and he doesn't remember if he killed her or not. He was drunk or stoned or otherwise incapacitated.
Funny Man is a cross between Elmore Leonard and Regis Philbin after a few martinis. Randy riffs freely on his obsessions: the female form, the comic's worldview, and the quirks of the City of Angels.
