What a Week!

It's been an incredible first full week since my book was released. Highlights included newspaper and magazine reviews, interviews, and a television segment filmed right here in my office. Best of all, I received wonderfully enthusiastic emails from complete strangers kind enough to take the time and tell me why they liked the book. 

I want to thank everyone who has been so enthusiastic in their comments and support.

I've also been fortunate to get some excellent attention... most recently from People magazine, which named Bill Warrington's Last Chance to its "Good Read" section in the August 23 section. If you're interested in reading what others have to say about the book, you can find recent reviews here.

 This week looks to be just as exciting. I'm pleased to be featured on Mia Starr's unique and inspirational blogs, Four Days a Week. Check out "Monday Musings" for a conversation with... moi. Thank you, Mia!
Speaking of blogs, I'm also honored to be a guest blogger this week at "The Author's Desk" on the Penguin USA site. Today's post: "Thanks, Not for Us."


  1. Jim,

    This is fabulous! Congratulations on People selecting BILL WARRINGTON'S LAST CHANCE as a Great Read. I am enjoying every sentence and scene of your wonderful book. I look forward to reading your next one : - )


  2. That is so cool. Do you pinch yourself?

  3. Thank you, Mia, as always!

    Historywriter: Thanks for stopping by. I'm still pinching!

  4. Hi Jim: I finished reading the book yesterday while on vacation in Rhode Island (the only time I can actually sit and read a book nowadays). Wow...just fantastic! Rich, believable characters. Interesting and complex story. I couldn't put it down. I always knew you were an extremely talented writer. But with Bill Warrington, you hit it out of the park. I'm so glad that you never gave up on your dream. You have earned and deserve all the praise that has come your way. All of us at TD wish you the very best as the book hits the stores. Sincerely, Dan Taylor

  5. Dan, thanks so much for your nice note. Glad you enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing you at the Wilton reading on 9/7.
