A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF

I am very happy to announce that the next project will involve a KOREAN WAR story. Not sure of the particulars yet- it will most likely NOT be a full blown history of the entire war (that would involve a trilogy, at least, and my publisher isn't going along with that). I'm already digging into the research, focusing on a few characters, some minor, some well known, as I've tried to do in all of my books. No schedule for completion yet, but as the book progresses, I'll keep you updated here.

Above is the jacket for the latest book. If you check the "Order" page, you'll see that we are now accepting pre-orders, and all books ordered prior to the June 2 release date are guaranteed to be First Editions. Some people question whether I actually autograph the books myself- the answer is most emphatically YES. I will be shipping out all pre-orders so they reach you very close to the June 2 publication date. Finally, we've been able to list the LARGE PRINT edition and the Audio book as well. I'm happy to autograph the whole works.

ALSO – If you check out the Future Appearances page, you'll now see FULL DETAILS of my book signing tour in June/July.

As I've mentioned before, I'm really happy with the new book, though I'm betting I'll catch grief from some who aren't especially "fans" of W. T. Sherman. The research came from so many original sources, especially memoirs of probably 25 different historical figures, including Sherman himself (as well as Grant, Joe Johnston, etc). This will complete the series of the Civil War in the "west", moving from Atlanta, through the end in the Carolinas.

After this? First, a little break. I've done five books in five years. That's NOT a complaint, but it has taken a great deal out of me – so I'm going to take a little time off, and hope to begin work on the manuscript for the KOREA story this fall.

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. I don't have a staff do it.

Please note that some of your questions might be answered on the FAQ Page (Frequently Asked Questions).
