Jerry Engler was in one door and out another the next day this year on book signing tours through Kansas, Missouri and Colorado. Every where he went, the response of book managers was the same. They want him back. Kember at a Borders Store in Kansas says he can come back every month. "He's warm, and he talks to people." Laura at a Borders Store in Missouri says, "He sold 17 books in two hours like clockwork. The people seemed drawn to him." Krista at another Missouri Borders says, "He came here on a Wednesday afternoon, one of our worst times of the week. He still sold seven books. I think that's fantastic. We want him back." Laura at a Barnes & Noble in Colorado says, "Jerry only has to say when he can come back again. If we can, we'll have him any time." Brad at a Barnes & Noble in Kansas says, "I'm just looking forard to seeing his third Just Folks book when it comes out. The managers say his two books, Just Folks: Earthy Tales of the Prairie Heartland, and A Heartland Voice: Just Folks Two continue to sell after he has been there.
