Opening Day Will Be Here Soon

You may wonder why I start today’s post with a picture of my American legion baseball team’s picture taken over fifty years ago.

But it’s time for spring training and Major league baseball is less than a month away. They don’t carry the boxscores in the newspapers anymore, but I with the help of the Internet can follow the major league ballplayers who once played for the Razorbacks.

If you have never gone to spring training take a bit of advice. Go, do not pass Go or collect $200 dollars. It is well worth the adventure.


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. It is time to fill up the 2018 calendar for speaking events. 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.

Books: I hope to be able to soon announce the publication date for the next Jack Patterson thriller, The Eighteenth Green. I’ll let you know as soon as I doThere are still plenty of copies available for purchase of the other 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,  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.

A Favor To Ask. After you read A Game of Inches and if you enjoyed it 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.

Charitable Organizations.  If your organization is having a silent auction or needs a door prize please let me know. The three book series autographed went for $300 at a silent auction recently. I always set aside a number of my books for charitable events. Don’t hesitate to contact me by emailing me at [email protected].

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. Webb
