Special Announcement - RED HELMET release - 2008-01-12 15:42:31
Special announcement for our Homer Hickam Newsletter friends.

Because of the positive buzz on RED HELMET, and have decided not to wait until the Feb. 5 official publication date to offer my new novel of love and danger in today's Appalachian coalfields.

I've just heard they've managed to acquire some books and are offering them NOW although the number they have are limited. There's also some bookstores who have decided to break the Feb. 5 embargo and are starting to put RED HELMET out on the shelves.

So if you want to get ahead of everybody else, check on-line with Amazon or Barnes and Noble here on my RED HELMET page: or call your favorite bookstore. RED HELMET might be there today!

For autographed books, Mr. Shaver of Shaver's Bookstore has also told us he too has managed to acquire a limited quantity (these booksellers have their sneaky ways) so think Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) now and order an inscribed or autographed RED HELMET for your significant other and beat the rush. Tell me what you want me to write or let me use my author's flare to write a truly romantic inscription that is sure to make him or her appreciate you all the more! Just stop by for Mr. Shaver's contact information.

And, of course, we'd love to see a positive review on those on-line sites. Four or five stars would be really nice.

Happy reading to all my newsletter friends and I hope you enjoy RED HELMET!


PS - Although I will be making some limited appearances for RED HELMET in February and March, I will mostly be on radio and television during the initial roll-out of the novel in conjunction with my passionate support of the idea of having a NATIONAL MINERS DAY to recognize what I call the "essential Americans," our brave miners who supply over 50% of the energy requirements in the USA and nearly all the minerals such as iron, copper, silver, gold, and uranium. Please go now to for more on how to support these magnificent men and women and gain them their special day.

I will also be talking about my RED HELMET SCHOLARSHIP at Marshall University for the children of miners, especially members of mine rescue teams. In just a few days on, I will have more information about the RED HELMET SCHOLARSHIP and how you might participate. Please check often for updates on these important matters and my scheduled appearances.
