Malone’s Clones, 100% Pure Cotton

August 24, 2010

We have a winner!!!!   The fan naming contest was a huge success. There were several hundred entries, many of which contained multiple suggestions.  In all, there were nearly 1500 suggested names for the Malone fans.  In the end, one stood out, so here it is:   Malone’s Clones, 100% Pure Cotton.  It’s quite clever.  The first part was suggested by quite a few of the entrants, but the first one to send their e-mail along was Merrill Kalman of Scottsdale, AZ.  The second part was the brainchild of the novelist, David Robbins, who, on being told of the selection, offered the clever reference to Cotton.  Thanks to everyone who gave us suggestions and we welcome all of Malone’s Clones.

A New Fan

February 22, 2010

From  – “I’m 28, and have never been much of a reader. While working as a music promoter for a short period of time I realized that I had lots of downtime during the day and while traveling from city to city. One day while shopping, in a store I will not mention because they are (a) horrible employers/corporation, I saw this book that caught my eye……The Amber Room. I’d never heard of it but something about the cover screamed, “MUST READ”. I finished the book in 4 days. Never had I finished a book, lack of interest in the topic, or my A.D.D., lol. Three years later and I’m still riding along with Cotton Malone.

Thank You, Steve Berry!!!!”
