It's a Book, pass the cigars!

The Fed-X driver dropped off a package about an hour ago. After a year of writing, re-writing, editing, revising, seeking endorsements, reviewing and approving artwork...and a ton of work from my wonderful team at Revell, the first copy of The Homecoming has arrived!

Holding that first copy in your hands, I'd say is the author equivalent of holding your newborn baby for the first time.

It also means thousands of copies are now being shipped to stores all across the country, including I'm told, Sam's and Wal-Mart this time. Officially, it doesn't release till June 1st. But I wouldn't be surprised to see it showing up on shelves a week or two early.

Hope you all enjoy it. If you've read my first book, The Unfinished Gift, I'm sure you will. But even if you haven't...in the words of the reviewer from RT Book Reviews magazine: "While this is a sequel to The Unfinished Gift, it could easily be a stand-alone novel."


  1. Dan writes a wonderful story! My brother, Marty, compares Dan's first book to Richard Paul Evan's titles. So I had to get his first book. I can't wait to read The Homecoming!!

  2. Gorgeous cover! Can't wait to read it!!!!

  3. Thanks for the kind words Rhonda and Cara. Say Cara, what's that WW2 site you emailed me about a while back? Could you email it to me again?
