I wish you continued success in all your writing [and living] pursuits in and out of the blogosphere. Cheers!


  4. Hey man thanks for checking out my poem. And you have an awesome site!
    I took a second take when I saw your name, because I named a dude Jack(ie) Wilson in a story once!
    Very best bud 🙂

  11. Seems like you have a way of reaching out to people and acknowledging their work — I’ll be keeping an eye out to learn more from you on this whole blogging/writing adventure I’m starting. Thanks for checking in!


  12. Jacke! I’m in the middle of The Race now and am loving it! I’ll finish it today and probably The Promotion tomorrow. I love your writing style; very gripping, and you have a way of including little philosophical nuggets that make the reader pause. I love the line in The Race where you compare the Governor to a ten dollar bill…brilliant! 🙂


    1. Thank you! I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the book – I certainly have been enjoying your poems and musings. And this comment is a great coincidence, because I just featured your post about Christmas music on my site (I wrote the post this morning and scheduled it to go live in about thirty minutes or so – be sure to check back!).
