Benton Signs "War Paint"

By  | 

A Mississippi author paid a visit to the Queen City this weekend to sign copies of his new book.

Gary Benton, known to readers as W.R. Benton, signed copies of "War Paint" at Books-A-Million. The book is about a wealthy young man who gets into an argument with his father and moves out west. Once there, makes a discovery.

"I think when you finish the book you realize that even though you can defeat your enemy in a physical sense," Benton says. "The enemy has already done damage to you that can in no way ever be replaced."

The book is also slated to become a movie with a $5 million filming budget.
