A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF

I've never commented on the number of book orders (or emails) I receive from overseas, and while many of those have included service men and women stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq, many are from readers in lands where I had no idea anyone would care anything about the stories I tell. I've received book orders from nations as diverse as Lithuania, Australia, Japan, Denmark and, just last week, Singapore. The only problem is that the US Postal Service has raised overseas rates to incredibly high levels (and books are regrettably heavy). I really don't like charging people ridiculous postage fees when they are kind enough to buy an autographed book from me. But - we have had to raise the automatic postage fee for overseas orders from $23 to $28, which actually is about what it costs to send a single hardcover book to Europe. And, to the many readers I've heard from in Canada: you too are getting the "bite". It costs $17 now to send a single book to Canada, which I think is ridiculous. I never charge extra for multiple book orders, and once in a while, the postage cost I pay to ship a three or four book package exceeds the cost of the books! Unfortunately, there's not much I can do about it, other than express both my apologies and my appreciation to those readers. If you don't mind the postage charge, I'll keep shipping the books- Thank you!

So, I've succumbed to the pressures of the 21st Century (and the insistence of my wife) and have finally put myself back onto Facebook. The little gizmo is at the upper right. I'm trying to keep that page up to date as well as this one, and if you "like" what I say there, I'm supposed to ask you to "like" me. Sounds a little strange, I have to admit. I don't see a button that says "despise", so maybe the responses are a little tilted.

I have always enjoyed telling stories most people aren't familiar with, and even many Civil War "buffs" don't know the story of the campaign that begins with Sherman's March across Georgia and what follows in the Carolinas. While Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox on April 9, 1865 is thought by most to be the "end" of the war, Sherman and Joe Johnston continue to play out a significant drama that concludes April 26, near Raleigh. I'm working on this book right now, what will become the fourth and final book of the series. The new book is scheduled to be released June, 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).
