Behind The Scenes Of The Launch of The Eighteenth Green

Dear Friends:

A great deal is happening before the launch of The Eighteenth Green. Advanced Reading Copies have been sent to reviewers, last minute edits are being corrected, book signings are starting to be scheduled, and book clubs are starting to ask that I come the month they read the next Jack Patterson thriller in the award-winning series. Just this week I have been invited to participate in BiblioFest in Charlotte in October and to do a book signing and launch at Park Road Books in Charlotte. Pre-orders are coming in for autographed copies of The Eighteenth Green at my website,

The pace is picking up, and I have to remind myself to continue to write every afternoon on my next novel. Actually writing every afternoon provides a respite. I can lose myself in the story and tune out the world. These days that’s a very wonderful thing to do. Don’t ask me what I think about lawyers blatantly violating attorney-client confidentiality or the Attorney General chanting about locking up a political opponent. These are indeed trying times. Best to write and tune out.

Well I am not exactly tuning out. I was invited to participate in a project sponsored by the McLatchey newspapers in North Carolina about issues important to North Carolinians. I have enjoyed so far participating and hope at some point the Charlotte Observer will bring all the “Influencers” together to discuss the issues.

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. I have a new book club appearance this July and am excited to meet with the group and talk about Jack Patterson.

Questions: Please use the comments section of this website to ask questions or make a comment or email me at [email protected] and follow me on Twitter at @WebbHubbell. I see them all and will try to respond to any reasonable question.

Until my next post all the very best. Webb
