A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF
I just dropped off of Facebook. Sorry, but I can't stand the vitriol, ugliness and ridiculous conspiracy theory rants that are flowing across every day. It matters not which side you're on politcally (and I do NOT have a political trumpet to blow), it seems as though social media has become simply a bullhorn, and some of the garbage out there is so ridiculous, and so unpleasant to read, I'd rather not deal with it. For years, prior to Facebook, I received your comments and criticisms right here, and I answer eveything I have time for. I prefer going back to that again.
I'm well into the writing of the new manuscript, focusing on Korea, specifically Inchon and the Chosin Reservoir campaigns. If all goes according to schedule, the book should be published MAY 23, next year. If you wish to be notified when we can begin accepting orders for autographed copies, please drop me an email – I'll add you to the list!
This story has taken me down some roads I did not expect. By speaking with living veterans, which is a luxury in a story like this, I've received some unique perspectives you simply can't get from a basic history book. It's a double edged sword though, since I'm always careful not to dig too far into an area where the veteran just doesn't want to go. It's not my job to push anyone's buttons, just for the sake of my own research. I've also been communicating with a direct descendent of one of the most significant historical figures of the war in Korea- and a man who will be a prominent voice in the story. When digging for good source material, it doesn't get any better than that. As this story evolves, I'm sure I'll find more surprises- that's a huge part of makes this so much fun. I hope that translates into a book you'll want to read.
As always, I apologize for not responding to every email I receive – but I assure you, I do READ all of them, and will answer them as time allows. And, for all you cynics out there (and there are a few), yes, it's really me who answers you. Honest – I really don't have a staff. Please note that some of your questions might be answered on the FAQ Page (Frequently Asked Questions). Please accept my most heartfelt wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holidays!
