Description

December 7, 1941 brought about a cataclysmic change to America. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor catapulted the country into a global war that every one expected, but still caught most people by complete surprise. Within a matter of months, the country was transformed into the greatest arsenal of war the world has ever seen. Over 16 million men and women served in uniform while nearly four times that number became citizen volunteers on the home front.

"Don't You Know There's A War On?" is a trip down memory lane during those challenging years when an entire nation went to war. Every man, woman, and child was called into service, and few, if any, refused the call.

This book is not just about volunteers and sacrifice. It also tells the story of one of the nation's best kept secrets in the Navy's incredible "V-5" program, the story of an airplane called "Stubborn Hellion," the Japanese "balloon bombs," and the bombing of Oregon by an ingenious Japanese plan that almost worked.

"Don't You Know There's A War On?" is a delightful read about those momentous days during World War II when America was forever changed by what many historians describe as the defining event of the 20th century.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
