A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF

Boy, what a couple of months. I fell behind considerably on the delivery of my new manuscript, mainly in dealing with the logistics, and the personal and emotional turmoil that my sister and I experienced, having to put my mother into a nursing home. Anyone who has been through that knows, certainly, that everything else takes a back burner. But there is another reality, which is the obligation I have to my publisher (and to myself) to complete this fourth book in the Civil War series.

I also feel a strong obligation to you.

If you haven't received a response to your email to me, here's why: since December 1, I've written manuscript pages every day except New Year's, and am within a week or two of completing the story. Sherman is a fascinating character, and I'm having enormous fun with him, at the same time recognizing that some readers might not agree with my version of his story. Regardless, my editor and I should be sitting down to edit the manuscript in New York before mid-February, and "The Fateful Lightning" is still scheduled to be released June 2.

After that, there's a new challenge. My contract with Random House calls for me to tackle the War for Texas Independence, but the amazing number of emails I have received point much more enthusiastically toward Korea (a story I've been talking about now for nearly ten years.) That's a hard conversation I will have in New York, with the people who hold my contract in their hands. We'll see how that goes.

My book signing tour will begin with the release of the new book in June, and the itinerary for that will be posted on the "Special Appearances" page probably in March or so. In the mean time, as I complete this manuscript, I hope all of you are enjoying the New Year. I wish you a healthy and happy 2015!

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).
