    Greetings Courtney,

    I’m Ryan, and I’m a writer with a young adult fiction novel hitting stands September 15th – it’s a southern themed coming of age tale called Tractor. The publisher is Sartoris Literary. Set in Oklahoma in 1961, a small town teen named John gets a spur of the moment job driving an old tractor across Arkansas to Oklahoma for a crotchety old farmer. John is about to enter his senior year of high school and has doubts about his future and the kind of man he wants to be. Unbeknownst to him, this trip will be just what he needs to figure all that out.

    It’s a great story for young adults, especially farmer folk like myself. I’m just looking to get it out to the public by advertising perhaps by an explanatory article with a link to Amazon. If you can help me out with this – please let me know! Hope to hear from you. The link is below!
