Today I wrote the following to the readers of thehubbellpew.com:
“Eight years ago I began writing meditations at thehubbellpew.com on an almost daily basis — most weeks five days a week. Lately, I have not been pleased with their quality and worry I am becoming repetitive. I have also started to examine my daily schedule. I need more time to read, meditate, pray, and get outside. So I have decided to do some tweaking with my schedule and some experimenting. I have always believed that to continue to improve one needs to change things up periodically.
So for the next two weeks the Hubbell Pew will be on a brief sabbatical. The time I normally spend writing the Pew will be spent reading some inspirational books that have been gathering dust on the bookshelf, walking in a nearby park, and taking notes. When I return we are going to experiment with posting a meditation on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. So after tomorrow’s meditation look for the next meditation on June 25, 2018.
For those who are interested, I am also doing some tweaking and experimenting with the other parts of my daily schedule, as well. It is very easy to spend to much time in front of a computer screen, especially when one is writing books and meeting contractual obligations to market on social media. My two week sabbatical will extend to the rest of my day as well.”
I write my novels after lunch practically every day. Every writer has his or her routine, mine is one to five every afternoon. I’ve done this for the last seven years. But I do think a little change is good for the soul now and then. I’ll let you know what changes I made in the next two weeks, and how they worked out.
The Eighteenth Green:
It’s official my next novel will be available this fall. Amazon is already taking preorders at https://www.amazon.com/Eighteenth-Green-Jack-Patterson-Thriller/dp/0825308852/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1526571422&sr=8-6&keywords=webb+hubbell+books. Autographed copies will soon be available for pre-order at webbhubbell.com.
I hope y’all are as excited as I am. I will keep you posted.
Speaking Opportunities: In 2017, my calendar was filled with speaking engagements around the country. I spoke to law schools about special prosecutors, at churches about the life changing and spiritual experience of spending time in prison, to civic organizations about the importance of organ donation, to business groups and colleges about My Journey Without Maps, and literary and library groups about writing novels. Contact me at [email protected] to arrange for me to speak to your organization or institution. I also love to talk to book clubs and community groups in the Charlotte area where I live. I just booked a new book club appearance in July and am excited to meet with the group and talk about Jack Patterson.
Books: There are still plenty of copies available for purchase of the award-winning Jack Patterson Thrillers, including A Game of Inches. They are available for birthdays, thank you gifts, and just to be nice presents. Autographed copies are available at my website, webbhubbell.com. Amazon and Barnes & Noble are also selling hard copies and eVersions, and local independent bookstores either have them in stock or can get books from my publisher, Beaufort Books. If your favorite bookstore has run out, ask them to order your books today.
Questions: Please use the comments section of this website to ask questions or make a comment. I see them all and will try to respond to any reasonable question.
Until my next post all the very best. WebbTags: Beaufort Books, Ginger Snaps, The Eighteenth Green, The Hubbell Pew, webb hubbell, when men betray
