Books by Alice Liles
My second book of blog stories, Adventures Down the Texas Rabbit Hole, is now available for purchase. While The Bright Lights of Muleshoe focused on all things Muleshoe, this book has a different collection of stories with over 250 full color photographs. Along with one section of stories about some Muleshoe personalities, this book covers other topics as well. The Lone Star Stories are all about things related to Texas; Animals I Have Loved shares memories and stories about the four-legged members of my family; and the Stories Near and Dear to my Heart are personal reflections and memories that relate to our collective human experiences.
The Bright Lights of Muleshoe, my first book with stories from my blog, is still available in book form, complete with more than 200 full-color photographs. Muleshoe may be the common thread running through the book, but you don’t have to be from Muleshoe or West Texas to relate to the people you will meet, the history you will learn, and the stories that will make you laugh as you read.
Both paperback books are $24.99 plus tax and shipping where applicable. You can contact me by phone or text at 806-946-7569, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order. Please leave a voicemail if I miss your call and I will get back to you.

The eBook versions are $5.99 each from Amazon.
Paperback copies can also be purchased on Amazon and at most other booksellers.
Adventures Down the Texas Rabbit Hole
Adventures Down the Texas Rabbit Hole is a collection of personal essays and photographs that embodies a true sense of the West, with Alice Liles’ clear Texas twang echoing through the pages. Through her eyes, we are given a tour of small town Texas, as if she were there with you personally introducing you to her neighbors, the local shop owners, businesses breathing life into the American experience outside the big city.
The stories are just like Alice, straight forward, honest, and rife with humor and grit from the dusty South Plains of Texas. From the country doctor to the saddle maker, horny toads to tumbleweeds, cats and dogs, family memories and special times, Adventures Down the Texas Rabbit Hole embodies middle America and Texas in all of its beauty, heartache, and promise. You don’t have to be from Muleshoe or Texas to find a story that you can relate to because we all share something called the human experience. Her second book expands those horizons by providing a glimpse beyond the borders of her hometown, all around parts of Texas, and as far as her trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, and beyond.
The Bright Lights of Muleshoe
Thirty-eight years in Muleshoe, Texas, has gifted me with a wealth of stories about the people, places, and history of our little town in the Blackwater Valley. But as time goes by, these priceless stories and town history are often lost forever as the people who know the details die and take their history to the grave with them. The Bright Lights of Muleshoe is a repository of West Texas lore set in a place with a name as unique as its people—Muleshoe. From a great newspaper sting to the travels of a fiberglass mule, this book tells the rich history of small-town life. But you don’t have to be from Muleshoe to enjoy these stories because the common denominator in each and every one is the human experience.
“Stories of intrigue and history define so many small towns in our Texas, and Muleshoe has a unique version of its own. From the life-size statue of “Ol’ Pete,” the memorial to a mule, to the many individuals who have claimed this town on the Llano Estacado their home, The Bright Lights of Muleshoe gives insight into this island upon an ocean of land.” -WYMAN MEINZER, award-winning photographer
