“The Nine Irony” has arrived!!!

by on Mar.12, 2009, under Blog, Videos

Hello everybody,

For a writer the most exciting and scary day is the day your first book arrives.  Well, yesterday I received my advance copy of The Nine Irony in UPS.  The Nine Irnoy front coverMy fingers trembled as I ripped open the package from my publisher, afraid that maybe the title was spelled wrong or they put my dog’s pic in instead of mine.  Who knows?  Any author goes though this anxiety.  I began reading, praying that I wouldn’t find mistakes that I’d missed.  Yes there were a few, but probably ones I would only notice.  So, the soup is finished, the roast is out of the oven and Nick Thomas is a reality.  He is a modern day Travis MGee, to those who might remember.

I will be setting up accounts today at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com and Ingram Books.com and it will also be available though my web site.  I will also have it in E-Book format and am working on an MP-3 version as well.  I think we all have to embrace the NOW with new technology.

I will keep you posted and PLEASE order my book!!!! Thank You and I am GRATEFUL for all your support and encouragement!  Tom

    Great Read!!! Nick Thomas is a very interesting character, he is witty and smart and looks at life as a precious gift. This book grabbed me right off the bat and I couldn’t stop reading until I finished it. I look forward for the next book to see what Nick gets into and out of!!

    Tom’s book takes us on a fun ride! I loved his colorful characters – even the background characters drew me in. I’m hoping his next books continue with the same cast of personalities. If he writes it….I will read it!

    Fantastic summer read! Such a surprise to find an up and coming author who already has what it takes right out of the gate. Can’t wait for the next one.

    As the owner of many of Bob Dorr’s books, I have come to expect that ahntying he produces will be well-researched, well-presented, and very well-written. Hell Hawks! is right up there not only with Dorr’s other works but with the best in Be There combat writing. Here’s an example: The German pilot ran flat-out low threading the needle between a church steeple and tall brick smokestack. Narrow streets raced under the wings of Kraman’s P-47 as he engaged the throttle button triggering emergency water injection. His Pratt & Whitney surged as Kraman squeezed off short bursts at his quarry, the enemy banking abruptly left and right to throw off the American’s aim. Across the Rhine, farther into Germany, the pair raced east Dorr and co-author Thomas D. Jones (USAF Academy grad, ex-B-52 driver, veteran of four NASA space shuttle flights) also rightly recognize the guys who weren’t strapping into the 365th Fighter Group’s P-47s: The men with stripes on their arms didn’t pilot Jugs, but they made warfare in the Jug possible. We tend to forget that the aircraft of WW II, after all, were just 15 years removed from Lindbergh’s Ryan NYP of 1927 but were very complex machines. The authors salute the men with the stripes well. The results of close to 200 interviews of 365th FG veteans, other combat vets, family members, and more, plus four years of research, Hell Hawks! is loaded with the day-to-day details of fighting a tenaciously fierce enemy, demonstrating throughout the book that ground attack combat was a deadly way to earn your flight pay. The authors bring the personalities of the young pilots alive as well as provide a big picture of Allied strategy and the pace of war from D-Day to victory. This is an excellent book not only for military historians but for anyone who enjoys aviation writers at the top of their game. Splendid!
