Webb Hubbell Writes To His Readers


Dear Reader,

I am having so much fun going to book clubs, private events, and talking to organizations, I decided I should give the readers of When Men Betray, Ginger Snaps, and the soon to be re-released by Beaufort Books Friends in High Places an opportunity to ask me questions about the books, what I am reading, the writing process, or anything else for that matter. Simply, ask your question in the comment section below or if you want confidentiality send me an email at [email protected] and on Friday’s I will try answer a select few just as if we were having a conversation. Please don’t be hesitant, I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to engage with my readers.

Since this is new, I thought I’d answer an often asked question at book clubs or audiences of two hundred.

Are You Writing Another Jack Patterson Thriller? 

The short answer is yes. It will be set in Washington, DC rather than in Little Rock but many of the same characters in the previous two Jack Patterson books will return. One of the dangers of writing a book with the same characters and the same setting is you can inadvertently start writing the same book. I want on the other hand the characters, the series, and myself to grow. I hope that each Jack Patterson novel stands on its own, and that the series is merely a starting point to explore different themes and issues.

What Are You Reading?

I love to read all genres. I just finished The Gift of Rain by Tan Twan Eng. It is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. Living near the North Carolina mountains encouraged me to read a wonderful book. It is titled Called Again by Jennifer Pharr Davis and published by Beaufort Books.

In 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis became the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trail. By hiking 2,181 miles in 46 days – an average of 47 miles per day – she became the first female to ever set that mark.

The most amazing part of this story is not found at the finish, but is discovered through the many challenges, lessons and relationships that present themselves along the trail. This is Jennifer’s story, in her own words, about how she started this journey with a love for hiking and more significantly a love for her husband Brew. Together, they were able to overcome rugged mountains and raging rivers, sleet storms and 100 degree heat, shin-splints and illnesses.  This is the story of a real person doing something remarkable.

I hope this letter encourages you to write in a question or consider asking me to come to your book club or speak to your organization or University.
All my best,
Webb Hubbell
