The book is about a juvenile delinquent that changes his life around because of the love of his lady.

Amazon.com, BN.com and Heartland Reviews all gave it 5 stars and many people on SoyChicano have read it as well and really like it.

Check it out, you just click on the link below and it'll take you right there. You don't have to do a google search.

I finished reading Forever My Lady yesterday, and let me tell you, it was a great book! The characters were so unique and interesting, and the story just had me hooked, I didnt put it down until I finished it. I recommend this book to everyone.

Great book Jeff, can't wait for the next one!!!

Wow, Jeff! Glad to see that you're getting GOOD FEEDBACK on your book.

!Que Alegria! !Me da mucho gusto!

I, also, was 'personally' invited to read his book. And, of course, I mentioned him to send a copy to 'OTHER' members of here from SoyChicano.

Glad to see that you took my advice, Jeff.

I've, ALSO, read the first chapter and was onto my second when I got emotionally sad....I couldn't read any longer cuz I knew people from work was going to see me cry................

READ IT!!

This book was awesome, and Jeff you left me waiting for more...especially the ending...to be cont.....hurry up and make part 2, and i trust you'll make the right decision for the outcome of Dio's and Jen's life.....I especilally loved the way you wrote the letters to each other between Dio and Jen....I seriously could not put the book down, and i read it all in two days!! Dio's character reminds me of myself and the way i feel when it seems that things are looking up, sometihing just drags me back....
great execution of detail Jeff...keep them coming...!!! Veronica~~

Not to be a sour puss, vero, but THANKS FOR GIVING THE ENDING, MAN!

But, then again, you did me a favor. I couldn't RESIST to know how the ending was. Thanks, Girl!

^^^^It's ALLLL GOOD GIRRRL!!! I guess I can say it's Jeff's fault for writing such an addicting book, ?Que No?



Jeff, May I ask you a question about your writing? I've always been interested in knowing from an Author.

When you write, Do you have to be secluded from other people, meaning do you need peace and tranquility in order to do your work? In other words, HOW do you do your writing, if you don't mind sharing. If that's too personal, then I do apologize before hand. But I would appreciate the feedback. Gracias.

That's a good question, I need to write away from people where I can have peace of mind. Most of the time I spend my time procrastinating staring up at the ceiling, watching the movie in my head before I write. And after I've checked my email about 5000 times and there's nothing else for me to do then I start writing.

But once I've started writing I'm in a zone and I just write, I don't think too much I just let it flow. I do a lot of planning before hand then I get out of the way and let the characters say/do whatever the hell they want. Right now I'm working on the next book, Forever Mi Papi. It's a little bit of pressure because I have to make the book BETTER than the first and that takes a lot of brainstorming. I'll be letting a few people ... hint, hint, take a look at the next book before everyone else so I can get their feedback.

Jeff

Hi Jeff, hope the new year was great for you down in Miami!! Can't wait for the next book, but you shouldnt worry too much about it being "better"
the story is already a good one and I'm sure the continuation will follow that flow. You have great characters to work with!!
My copy of your book has been so passed around in my family, sorry I keep telling them to buy their own!! I think I'll buy everyone their own copy!!
Take care Jeff.

That's really sweet, I love to hear when the book is passed along to friends and family. Tell your daughter her friends should be able to order the book at any Borders as well and I don't think it takes any more than a few days to get it.

I was just brainstorming yesterday about the next book trying to make it really juicy. The characters have taken on a life of their own so they're likely to do whatever they want to do.

Jeff

jeff, what do you mean by this:

Care to elaborate a little more, please? Gracias.

Hummm, I get the 'hint, hint' part, you silly willy!

When you say you 'write', do you literally write or use a laptop and 'type' instead?
