Advanced Reader Copy
Read The Stories Before They’re Published
ARC books are not ready for prime time. Readers have asked for early access, so to accommodate those requests we offer an unpolished version. You will find mistakes and ill-conceived storylines. ARC readers help us identify these mistakes before we begin final rewrites and edits for release. Please enjoy and feedback is encouraged.

Coming-Of-Age Action / Adventure Story
For generations, the Carsons of Montana have lived the cowboy life. Since he was five, Austin has been on a horse, helping his dad herd cattle and care for horses. But circumstances have forced him and his dad to move to Texas, where there seem to be no real cowboys anymore, just too many people for his taste. You can’t influence fate or change what’s out of your control. But you can choose what you do with the cards you’re dealt. But fate might help Austin discover girls.

This is the Advanced Reader Copy of the third book in the A Better Man series, which means it is still a work in progress. If you find mistakes or have suggestions to improve the book, please share them with my team and me.
As always, there is much more than just sports as David navigates through life, intending to become a better man.
Sometimes, characters from outside the Stupid Boy/Better Man stories cross over and show up in this series. And occasionally, a character from Stupid Boy or A Better Man will show up in one of the others.
I realize that some readers have read all of the books as I’ve posted them (thank you), but some have not. This book is to provide the backstory for these crossover characters. If you’ve not read these before, well, this will hopefully fill in some holes and give you a more complete picture of what’s going on in our friend David’s world. And if you have read all of them, perhaps this will remind you of where some of the characters come from and what they’re about.
Each of the books included here has an added preface of its own, explaining what character or characters from the story have appeared in Stupid Boy or A Better Man.
Please note that the stories contained here have been re-edited from the originals; the plot, characters, and story line are the same, but they’re not word-for-word identical to the original published version.

★★★★★ You’re getting better with each story. I love this story. It grabbed a part of me and held on until I finished. I hope others who’ve not read it yet appreciate it as much as I have.

Most third sons never survived childhood. Third sons were a problem for a hereditary peerage. They couldn’t inherit, which made them dangerous to the heir. In the Duchy of Montrose, the heir was the firstborn. The second son was traditionally sent to the clergy, renouncing all his rights to inheritance.
Today marked the liminal ritual or rite of passage. For Thomas Mycroft, the third son, he’d just turned eighteen, making him a man. Today he would learn his fate― would he be used for a political marriage or put into the military—somewhere far from home. Today would mark the beginning of an adventure.
The Third Son is a fantasy novel filled with plenty of swordplay, magic, and even a little romance to make things interesting.
