The Island

Posted on Updated on

Just a shout-out to my readers about a great book that should not only be a part of every library, but should be required reading.  J.L. Pattison does a great job weaving a story without all the extra baggage that accompanies most novels. The book is now available on Amazon in Kindle format as well as paperback.

The Island


America’s non-readers.

This does not bode well for those of us who are authors.

Author J.L. Pattison

This article contains some very interesting facts regarding the demographics of non-readers in America.

Most surprising is that 28% of those over age 50 haven’t read a book in the past year, compared to only 20% spanning the ages 18 to 49. But then again, if you’ve ever been to a nursing home then you know that the TVs are all on and the bookshelves are usually covered in a layer of undisturbed dust. Beside eyesight being an issue in the elderly, I don’t have an answer for why over a quarter of older Americans don’t read.

Overall, this article is worth the short read . . . unless, of course, you’re a non-reader.

Heroes of Courage – Book 1

There are few things in life that are as exciting as seeing your own material finally in print. This is the first in a series of books.  If you order a copy, please consider leaving a review for me when you have finished the book. Thank you.

My second book is almost complete and I am hoping that it will be on the market by late summer 2018. Stay tuned.
