Today, a new President of the United States is sworn in today. I know for many friends today is a day of trepidation and disappointment. I wrote today at thehubbellpew.com a few thoughts. I hope you will take a minute to click on the link and give a thought to the men and women who “set up the chairs.”
I celebrated a birthday this week, and really enjoyed the day. When you have been given a second chance at life like I have been, birthday’s and anniversaries take on a special significance. Thank You George!
Twenty-four years ago I attended my first inauguration and began my work at the U.S. Department of Justice. I still remember the excitement and hope we all felt watching a close friend sworn in as President. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, but I still get goose bumps remembering that day.
Exciting News: My blog of daily meditations The Hubbell Pew has been given a facelift and added a more powerful search engine where you can browse amongst over 1600 meditations. Please help me spread the word! Tell all your friends about this website and please visit yourself. Let me know what you think! Thanks!
Speaking Engagements: I spoke to a group of Business Executives at Covenant Presbyterian in Charlotte last Tuesday, and later in the year at The Charleston Library Society, and the American Association of University Women. Details to follow soon. If you would like me to address your book club, organization or institution contact me at [email protected]
A Favor To Ask. After you read A Game of Inches and if you enjoyed it like so many who are saying “this one is the best of the three” please write a review on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Powell’s, or Goodreads website even if all you do is award it five stars.
A second way to help is to drop by your local bookstore and suggest they carry all three of the award-winning Jack Patterson Thrillers: When Men Betray, Ginger Snaps, and A Game of Inches.
Most importantly, tell your friends, your book club, and your business organization what many are writing — that it is a “must read” and “one of the top summer reads.”
Charitable Organizations. I donated twenty books to the Charlotte Library so promising Pages could read my book. If your organization is having a silent auction or needs a door prize please let me know. I heard this last week that the three book series autographed went for $300 at a silent auction. I always set aside a number of my books for charitable events.
Until my next post all the very best and don’t forget to order and then review A Game of Inches. WebbTags: The Hubbell Pew, webb hubbell
