Hello out there.
Welcome to another question and answer video. We received a lot of great questions for this and I’ve tried not to be boring. I’m starting to get my legs under me as far as being in front of a camera is concerned. So, thank you for bearing with us.
This video was taken in front of Brookland Cayce High School. This is where both Cate and I graduated. At the very beginning of this video, I was clearly being a goofball. However, it was because of Cate. Just a minute earlier, she messed up the introduction, calling me Jeff instead of A.J. (For those of you keeping score at home, my initials are A.J., but most of the non writing, non publishing, non reading world know me as Jeff.) She had done a marvelous introduction then out came ‘Jeff.’ Her reaction was hilarious, and no, I will not sully her reputation with telling y’all what was said.
Onto the next question, which is from Trish Cline. She asked a question I’ve received before, but she asked it in a different way:
“I know writing is a big part of your life. Have you always wanted to write? Did you make up stories as a child and develop them into full length books?”
Here is my response:
Wait, before you leave, don’t forget about my newest novel, My Summer Vacation by Jimmy Lambert. We’ve all had to do that new school year report on what we did during the summer. I used to hate them. I’m sure some of y’all did, too. But did you ever spend your summer vacation in a boys institution? Check out the synopsis below.
On the third day of summer vacation in 1979, three boys walked along the side of a road, laughing, talking about baseball cards, swimming at Booger’s Pond and Sarah Tucker, the prettiest girl in school. How could they know a few minutes later one of them would be dead, one crippled and one about to face the worse summer of his life?
Wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t commit, Jimmy Lambert is sent to The Mannassah Hall Institute for Boys. On his first day there, Doctor William English strikes him. It would be the first of many Jimmy would suffer at the hands of guards and inmates. Fighting back is an option, but could it have dire consequences?
As Jimmy loses hope, two unlikely people come to his aid. Will they be in time to save him from the bullies at The Mannassah Hall Institute for Boys? Or will they be too late?
Doesn’t that sound like an awesome read? If so, please consider purchasing a print copy directly from me. Yes, it is on Amazon, but Amazon isn’t exactly author friendly, but that is a story for another day.
If you would like a copy of My Summer Vacation by Jimmy Lambert, click on the purchase button below and don’t forget to leave your information so we can get it shipped to you. We’ll try to accommodate international orders as well, but that depends on the cost of shipping. I hate to say that, but shipping to international countries can be expensive sometimes.
Thank you for coming by for the video and promotion. Until we meet again my friends, be kind to one another.
