Why Is Jack Patterson Dreaming of Fried Crappie?



Dear Readers:

What you see above is a cooking pan full of freshly caught and cooked Crappie. In The Eighteenth Green, Jack says:

“Most Arkansas fishermen will tell you that well-cooked crappie is the best tasting freshwater fish around. Crappies are puny, not more than half a pound. But they put up a heck of a fight and tasted as sweet as sunrise.”

I’ll leave to your imagination until you have your copy of The Eighteenth Green why Jack is talking about fried crappie in a legal thriller about the connection between a murder on the 18th green at Columbia Country Club and a spy for Israel.

Amazon started taking pre-orders for The Eighteenth Green last month at https://www.amazon.com/Eighteenth-Green-Jack-Patterson-Thriller/dp/0825308852/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1531504047&sr=8-1&keywords=webb+hubbell+books, and I followed suit for those who want autographed copies at my website webbhubbell.com. Preorders help my publisher know how many copies to print and help me to know how many books to order, how many supplies to get for shipping, and in a hundred different ways to help get the ball rolling for the publication process.

If you are so inclined to want an autographed first edition consider placing a preorder. Every one of the books sold through my website webbhubbell.com comes with a guarantee. If you want to cancel or don’t want the book after you get it, I will issue a full refund. No questions asked. I can’t speak to Amazon’s or B&N’s return policy, but mine is absolute. Don’t want the book, you get your money back.

A pre-order also puts you first in line. When I get my books from the publisher they go out to the pre-orders in the order of their receipt. Usually this happens weeks before the books are available on Amazon or at bookstores.

If you are curious about other aspects of getting The Eighteenth Green out please write a comment or email me at [email protected] and I will get right back to you.

I hope y’all are as excited as I am. I will continue to keep you posted.

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.

Books: There are still plenty of copies available for purchase of the 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, webbhubbell.com.  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.

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
