Notes from JWR:

The recent rare derecho storm system with extreme winds and in the eastern U.S. and concurrent heat wave throughout much of the nation are making headlines. Please pray for those who have suffered loss from the storms.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve just signed a contract with E.P. Dutton (the parent company of Penguin Books, that publishes my nonfiction titles), to publish my next two novels. The novels are under the working titles Expatriates and Liberators. They should be out in 2013 and 2014, respectively. All that I can say at this stage of the writing is that Expatriates will be set primarily in central Florida, the Philippines, and northern Australia.

OBTW, if all goes well, Penguin Books should be releasing Rawles on Tools For Survival (a nonfiction book) sometime in 2014.
