Book Signing to Benefit Navy Marine Corps Relief Society

It’s that time of year again. Time for Rick Campbell and I to do our annual book signing for the benefit of the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. This will be the third year that we have done this. Last year we raised $1500 for NMCRS. We are looking to do even better this year. We will be signing our books at the Washington Navy Yard Town Center on 12 September from 1100 to 1300. Come out and see us, buy some really good books (well, we are the authors), and donate to a very good cause. All proceeds go to NMCRS.

Re-release of Firing Point!

As you may know, Firing Point, Don Keith and my book that is the basis for the movie Hunter Killer has been out of print and not available for a while. Penguin is re-releasing it under the title Hunter Killer. Kindle is available now, according to Amazon, with hard copy release scheduled for 16 October. Just in time for the movie premier.

Navy Marine Corps Relief Society Donation

Rick Campbell and I presented the proceeds from our Annual Combined Book Signing to Melodie Waddle from the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. This year we earned more than $1500 for NMCRS to help our Sailors, Marines and their families in need.

New Editions of Final Bearing and Operation Golden Dawn

Well, just completed two new updates to my books.

We are publishing a new edition of Final Bearing. When we bought the rights back from TOR-Forge in 2011, we re-published the book in a 5″X8″ format. To keep the cost reasonable in that format, we had to cut the page count and thus make the font small (8). The new edition is in a 6″x9″ format and with a much easier to read 12 font.

And we have a new edition of Operation Golden Dawn. An eagle-eyed reader, Steve Southard, spotted several errors that needed correcting. The new edition corrects those errors. I’m thinking of asking Steve to edit my new book before we publish it. šŸ˜‰

Both new editions are now available on Amazon.

Book Signing to benefit the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society

Rick Campbell and I are doing our annual Book Signing for the benefit of the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. When we did one last year, we raised $2000 dollars for NMCRS so we decided to make it an annual event.
This year, we are doing the signing at the Town Center, Building 22, on the Washington Navy Yard. The Event will be on 20 July from 1100-1400. All proceeds go to the NMCRS.
Anyone with a valid CAC, military ID, or a retired military ID can get access to the yard at any of the open gates. Anyone without these IDs will need to be escorted on the Yard. If there is enough interest from people who canā€™t get on the Yard, we will look at having another signing off the Yard somewhere.

2017 DC Area Submarine Birthday Ball

Penny and I are attending the DC Area Submarine Birthday Ball on Saturday evening, 1 April. It is being held at the Marriott Gateway Hotel, as usual. Someone really should have looked hard at scheduling the Birthday Ball on April Fools Day. Hope to see you there.
