Follow Me, a new book by Bill Barton, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Follow Me is a story about three friends that encounter a cursed tombstone one fateful summer night. They are faced with events they could not explain. This book shows that even if you come from a less than perfect family a true friend can make all the difference in the world. A true friend believes in you and makes you believe in yourself. These teenagers will be forced to grow up. They will learn life’s biggest lesson: to say goodbye. This book is dedicated to Tommy.

Bill Barton was raised on a dairy farm in upstate New York in a town called Johnsonville. He has a menagerie of animals including llamas, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea fowl, quail, pheasants, peacocks, and two dogs, Babu and Dibley. He was educated in Hoosick Falls, New York. He just recently finished a course on becoming a veterinary assistant. He has been writing for the past several years, but never went to the next step to get published. Last year he met an incredible kid that showed him he could do it. This kid believed in him. Thank you, Tommy. He is Bill’s inspiration.
