The Woes of Publishing


Wow – I never would have believed what all is entailed in getting my book published! I have been working with Amazon since last November. No matter how many times you think you have updated the FINAL manuscript – I don’t think there ever is a final.

I’ll be the first to admit that my computer skills don’t rank in the top ten percent, but holy cow, how complicated can uploading a manuscript and photos be? Trust me – it ain’t no “piece of cake.”

Today – for the umpteenth time, I have been on my computer, communicating with Amazon, hopefully conveying my wishes, and praying that this will be the final update. One of the gals on “my team” – I’m beginning to believe that everyone has the same team, consisting of approximately 20 people – EXPLAINED to me that “…this IS an online publishing company.” Oh – well okay – what happened to the “we will be there at every turn” that was promised when they were soliciting my business?

Yes, it has been stressful day, and yes, I still have high hopes, and yes – I WILL get “Run Rabbit Run” available on Amazon in the near future.

Many thanks to my loyal supporters, my facebook friends, my family and friends, and to my dear friend – editor and indexer – Robert A. “Buffalo Bob” Smith.

Run Rabbit Run!



“Run Rabbit Run” – The Edna Murray Story

By Edna’s granddaughter
Pam Paden Tippet

The Life, The Legend, and The Legacy of Edna “Rabbit” Murray “The Kissing Bandit”

“Grandma didn’t bake cookies.”
– author Pam Paden Tippet

Edna wasn’t your ordinary grandmother, with nicknames such as “The Kissing Bandit” and “Rabbit.” She ran with the likes of the Barker Gang, Alvin Karpis, and even harbored John Dillinger and a dying John “Red” Hamilton. She served time with Barrow Gang member Blanche Barrow, and was a three-time prison escapee earning her the nickname “Rabbit” since no pen could keep her in. A compelling story detailing the life of Edna Murray, her criminal career as a Gangster Moll in the Barker-Karpis Gang – including how it all began – how her life ended – and the impact it had on her family.

J. Edgar Hoover said of the Barker-Karpis Gang,
“… the toughest mob we ever cracked.”
