I just saw another book on the 1913 storm in the Great Lakes. The name escapes me but it was in the Transportation section of the book store. How are the sales going on the book??

The last person on earth to be told how well or how poorly book sales are going is the author. Believe me, publishers go to great lengths to hide this from the people who write the books. However, from a couple of "leaks" I have found out that sales are exceeding the company's expectations--and the real "buying season" for a November storm book is yet to come.

Hmmm, well hopefully you will be getting some royalties and you can buy me dinner at your next event. I owe you a couple of brewskies and maybe a meal. I haven't decided on that yet. If my wife cooks on Saturday then I will be paying for everybodies hospital bills.

I am in the process of reading your book for the second time. The first time was more of a glimpse and scan through. I am actually now taking the time to read it slowly. Still enjoying it.

Are they any pictures other then the one in your book of the Waldo's pilothouse being all smashed??

For all who are interested--on Tuesday, September 9 the History Channel (U.S.) at 8 p.m. (Eastern) will present an installment of its "Deep Sea Detectives" program. It will focus on the mysteries surrounding the sinking of the S.S. Regina in Lake Huron during the "White Hurricane" storm of 1913. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed for this program and will be one of the featured "experts." Some of the reinactments of events were staged on the S.S. Willis B. Boyer in Toledo.

Please do not throw darts at my image on the TV screen. It will permanently nick the glass.

Thanks for the heads up David. I'll be watching with interest. Don't worry about the darts, I never use them. Bricks from time to time, but only for C-SPAN or commercial breaks. (I can't tell which is worse)

News for those interested in "White Hurricane" or shipwrecks on the Great Lakes--Discovery Channel will be offering a new program. I was involved in the research and filming of this documentary last fall and just now received a message from the producer--

"Just a heads up that the documentary on shipwrecks of the Great Lakes is scheduled to air for the first time on June 5 at 1 pm on the Discovery Channel.

It will be repeated a number of times but we're not sure when. The Discovery Channel website, www.discovery.com, has a TV schedule. The
official title of the program is: Shipwrecked: Rage of the Great Lakes."

So far I haven't seen the finished product, but I'm looking forward to seeing the first airing.

Looks like I may have to set up my recorder to catch this one. Thanks for letting us know!
