August Newsletter


Dear Readers:

I am pleased to say my next Jack Patterson Novel is completed and with my agent. The working title is “The Eighteenth Green,” and I hope to be able tell you an approximate publication date very soon. I am working on the next Jack Patterson Thriller tentatively titled “Give Me Your Poor.” When you are my age and you enjoy doing something you enjoy as much as I do, why not continue.

I already have several book clubs and other speaking events lined up for the fall, including participating in a Symposium titled Watergate, Whitewater, & Wikileaks: Privacy, Policy, and the Public Trust in the Age of Information in November.  

By the end of the year I will have posted over 1900 meditations at Take a minute to browse the site and sign up for the almost daily postings.

Charlotte is hosting the PGA Championship. Suzy and I hope to be there every day seeing the world’s best golfers. I love the game, but they play it at an entirely different level. It is thrilling to see what they can do with a stick and a little ball. Watch for me, I’ll be the one wearing the Razorback golf cap and sitting in a red Razorback folding chair. There won’t be that many here in Carolina Panther land.


Upcoming Events: I am excited about my fall speaking events, but there is plenty of room available for your book club, organization, and institution, At events like these I get so much feedback on my books and almost every time I make new friends or catch up with old friends, or both. Contact me at [email protected] to inquire about me speaking or contact [email protected]. My speaking fees are not anywhere near as much as you might think or expect.

Books: The award-winning Jack Patterson Thrillers, including my latest, A Game of Inches are available for birthdays, thank you gifts, and just to be nice presents. Autographed copies are available at my website, Amazon and Barnes & Noble are 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 you a copy today.

When Men Betray Book CoverA 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 Noble, 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 BetrayGinger 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, a local homeless book club, 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. Don’t hesitate to contact me by emailing me at [email protected].

Until my next post all the very best and don’t forget to order and then review A Game of Inches. Have a great August! Webb
