Do You Recognize This Small Texas Town?

May 6, 2014

vvdenman small town

Unless you’re a native of west Texas, you probably don’t recognize this small town situated on the rolling plains just below the caprock escarpment of the Llano Estacado.

Why does this town interest me? It’s the camouflaged setting of my debut novel, Jaded.

I say “camouflaged” because I changed the name (to Trapp) and some of the specific details (like adding a grain elevator), but I kept the local charm and the geographic location.

Anybody care to guess the real name of this quaint town? If not, you can cheat HERE.


Side Note: If you’d like to read the first chapter of Jaded,

    I guessed Floydada, just because I like the sound of it in my head, but I think it lies ON the caprock. 🙂 Post? Nice!

      Too funny. I mentioned Floydada in my book for the exact same reason.🙂

        That is funny! I can hardly wait until “Jaded” comes out.
        I’m pretty sure that after I read your wonderful initial offering, I too will be jaded.🙂
