A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF
STAY TUNED FOR A COMPLETELY REVAMPED WEBSITE! Around the first of November, you will find that after twenty years with the same format, we are completely updating this site. (I've already heard: "It's about time".) Book ordering should be simpler, with (finally) a place where you can tell me if you wish any kind of personalization in your book.
PLEASE NOTE THAT STARTING OCTOBER 5, I WILL BE TRAVELING, AND WILL BE UNABLE TO SIGN AND SHIP OUT ANY BOOKS YOU MIGHT ORDER. THUS, ANYTHING ORDERED AFTER OCT. 5 WON'T BE SHIPPED UNTIL ABOUT OCT. 26. VERY SORRY FOR THIS DELAY!
In response to those who ask "What's Next?" I am now working on a story surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis, of 1962. This is a story that is rarely explored (though TV has done it a couple times). The cast of characters is amazing: JFK, RFK, Khrushchev, Castro, the CIA, etc. Already I'm digging deeply into the research of this critical time in the history of the entire world- when we came within an eyelash of World War III, and thus, nuclear holocaust. I've found that, for the most part, young people have no idea just how terrifying this event was, and I hope I can make it a story that will be both suspenseful and entertaining. After that, I will begin searching for a Vietnam story. That has been a long time coming, and I've heard from a huge number of veterans that their story needs to be told. I agree. Stay tuned for more info!
I continue to be amazed, and extremely grateful, to so many people who have written me with comments on the new book. Some of these notes come from veterans of the Korean War, and when someone tells me: "You got it right- and I know, because I was there", well, I can't think of a more extraordinary compliment. THANK YOU!
Though "The Frozen Hours" is now in its third printing, we still have a limited supply of First Editions set aside, so if you wish to reserve one, you can place your order, and send me a brief email requesting a 1st printing/1st edition. I'm happy to send those out, as long as the supply lasts. I don't want to sound as though I'm "pushing" my book, but I know that some people collect First Editions.
As always, and until the website is updated, if you wish any sort of personalization in a book you order, rather than just my signature and date, please send me an email. Sorry for that extra step.
Have a Terrific Autumn!
