New Release Date for J.D. McDuffie Book: July 15, 2018

Book title and cover subject to change
Last week, I signed with Texas-based Waldorf Publishing to publish my book on J.D. McDuffie.  And now, we have a release date set for Sunday, July 15, 2018.

The working title of the book is “J.D.” and a working draft of the cover is in this post.  Both title and cover are subject to change as the book is edited and readied for printing.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this project, most particularly the McDuffie family.  Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to interview both his wife, Ima Jean, and his daughter, Linda.  Their support has been invaluable.

It has continued to amaze me how many lives J.D. McDuffie has touched.  As of this writing, more than 30 people have been interviewed for this book.  Many have contributed stories, film, and pictures, as have several readers here at

If you’d still like to be a part of this project and I haven’t spoken with you yet, keep those stories coming.  I’m best reachable by e-mail at  Even if I’m unable to use your story in this book, I do have more plans going forward.

Thank you again to the staff at Waldorf Publishing, and to you readers for your support.  There will be more updates between now and the release date on Sunday, July 15, 2018, and of course much more after.
