    Hi, Jack!
    My computers at home have turned into paperweights (they’re very old) so Twitter doesn’t load on them properly. As I am able to read my email, I saw that you mentioned me via #FF with regards to my “10 Things to Know About Me” blog. Thank you so much for the mention! I do enjoy your tweets and blogs. You rock, my brother! B@Peace!

      Hi Traci (again). I think your very brave “10 Things to Know About Me” blog post deserves all the recognition it can get. I was happy to #FF it and will look forward to your future posts. Thanks again for posting here. — Jack

    Hi, Jack!
    I first saw your reviews on the G/L Fiction Book Reviews site. I thought you were VERY honest, to the point and, simply stated, “reliable”. So how can I get you to review my new book “One Last Lie”? It’s currently available on Kindle but softcover should be out this week. (I can always send you one of my copies.) I guess I should first ask, “Are you interested”? Thanks — Rob

    Hi Jack, any chance you’re the same J.U. who lived on Long Island as a lad?

    Hi Jack,
    Not sure if you remember me (or if you’ll even see this), but you reviewed my book, “One Last Lie” a few years back. I’m not exactly sure how I found this blog of yours, but I couldn’t help but tell you how engrossing and captivating your words are. There’s a gift within your writing that should be shared with many more people. I’m glad I found this blog… and the gift you shared with me.
