A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that in dealing with my mother's now needing to be in a nursing home, I learned that these kinds of facilities have libraries, which are almost all in need of contributions. The response I received from that was extremely gratifying- I have sent out a number of "care packages" of several of my books (most often Large Print and Audio books) to a number of facilities. BUT- I have also learned that this country has a great many more of these kinds of facilities for VETERANS than I was aware. Since most of my work deals with our military past, it made sense to me to focus on those kinds of places. If you are aware of any such facility who could use a donation of an assortment of my work, PLEASE let me know. One home in Missouri wrote to me that their residents have been a part of FIVE wars, and range in age from 55 to 102. It is extremely gratifying as well, to have heard from some of those men themselves, who express their interest in what I write. Since I am writing this on Thanksgiving Day, it only adds to the focus that these veterans MUST not only be remembered, but offered our most vigorous THANK YOU.

I am well into the writing of my new manuscript, focusing on Sherman's March, as well as the subsequent campaign in the Carolinas (the REAL end of the war, since the final surrender of Joe Johnston to Sherman actually takes place well AFTER Lee and Grant at Appomattox). For the next several weeks, I will continue with what I've been doing since October, which is writing nearly every day. I hope you find the results to be worthwhile. The new book, titled "The Fateful Lightning", is scheduled to be published June 2. I'll go out on the road then for another book signing tour- and perhaps will visit your city. The itinerary for that tour (for which I have NO input), will be posted on the "Appearances" page here sometime in the spring.

As always, I offer my apologies for not responding to every email I receive, but I assure you, I do READ everyone of them, and answer them as time allows. Please note that some of your questions might be answered on the FAQ Page (Frequently Asked Questions).
