Email from AJ Tata…
Thank you for making Foreign and Domestic a National Bestseller, reaching #6 on the Barnes and Noble Bestsellers list last March. Jake Mahegan is back in Three Minutes to Midnight, where we find him in Wake County in search of his mother’s murderer. Providing strong reviews of this latest book are these industry standard publications:
Publisher’s Weekly has given Three Minutes to Midnight a rare starred review. Excerpt: “Mahegan stands out from the crowd of usual thriller heroes, avoiding the clichéd trope of the mystical American Indian warrior. Vivid descriptions of close-quarters combat are detailed enough to be instructional, and Tata keeps the story twisting to the rousing final pages.”
Suspense Magazine: “Full of action and suspense, this is one book that screams reality… a knock-down/drag-out thrilling look at the reality of domestic terrorism. Being a retired general, the author knows exactly the right words to use to scare people to death.”
Booklist: “Fans of Lee Child and Brad Thor will also enjoy Mahegan’s adventures.”
This year’s book tour schedule includes three book release parties with live music, complimentary beer and food, and an auction to have your name as a character in the next book. Theresa Kostrzewa set the bar with a $5,000 donation to the North Carolina Heroes Fund at last years Raleigh party. Her character has a prominent role in Three Minutes to Midnight. This year’s book release events are:
April 26: Wilmington, NC, Ironclad Brewery, 5:30-7:30 pm, Masonboro Sound is playing

I hope to see you at one of the venues. I still donate a percentage of the royalties to the North Carolina Heroes Fund and to the Michael Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund (SEAL of Honor). Our goal is to sell 2,000 books from April 26 to May 1, as I am donating $1 for every hardcover book sold that week to these two veterans charities.
