Writing and publishing a book can be challenging .  And when things go wrong,  you’ll want all the help you can get.  As soon as you can get it.

There are no”Man’s Best Friends” at the Pelican Com Group. What we have though, is something better. Much better. Namely, a small group of bright, energetic, young publishing professionals with diverse skills trained to work side  by side with our authors, from manuscript submission until the book is in the
hands of its readers.

If the notion of publishing your book while part of a focused, goal-driven writer/publishing team appeals to you, visit our web site at www.pelicancomgroup.com and check us out. Better still, follow up by calling me a my personal line 561-899-6754 and I will answer any questions you might have.

MEMORIAL DAY. ITS NOT JUST A LONG WEEKEND!

Posted on: May 30th, 2016 by Publisher 2 Comments

Today is Memorial Day, and already the nearby  beaches are jammed with brightly colored umbrellas and throngs of people joyously frolicking in the surf.  And why shouldn’t they? It’s a three day weekend after all—a chance for  hard working people and their families to escape the daily grind of earning a living.

But Memorial Day is not just an excuse for a three day weekend.  That  only happened sometime after 1972, when several holidays were moved to Tuesdays to increase the number of three day weekends available. In particular, it  is not to be confused with Veterans Day. These days Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

As one who flew fighter aircraft (not the safest profession in the world, I admit) during the Cold War years from 1954 to 1981, I am grateful that those who died while on active duty are included in the list of those to be remembered on Memorial Day. That’s because I carry in my mind a floating, ever-changing, ever-fading list of names and faces to be honored every year. For example, I remember clearly a gloomy  year at Misawa Air Base, Japan  when two F-100 Super Sabre Squadrons, the 416th and 531st Tac Fighter Squadrons, lost 12 aircraft and  10 pilots. I was one of the two pilots that survived those accidents by the way.

I believe all veterans need to remember and be remembered. That’s why today I will be visiting one or more veterans cemeteries to pray for the souls of those who reside there   and make sure they are remembered.

Respectfully,

Are American Tourists Welcome in Vietnam? The Answer Might Surprise You

Posted on: September 9th, 2015 by Publisher No Comments

The answer varies depending on who you talk to, but  most American travelers find the Vietnamese polite, friendly, and definitely curious about the advantages of living in a democratic, capitalistic society.  Is this a new trend? Not really.  In Mick Greene’s new book “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot”,  he  describes a visit he made to Vietnam ten years ago  with five fellow “Yankee Air Pirates” —a term the Vietnamese used to describe those who wreaked  havoc from the sky during the Vietnam War (they call it “the American War” by the way, and they are extremely proud that they won it.)

The Vietnam War is part of American history like it or not. Reading “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot” by Mick Greene is a good way to learn about it before it fades away in the rear view window of our society.  How to buy it? It’s simple. Buy it on Amazon or Kindle  or at his web site www.oldboldbio.com.

 

Author Mick Greene Explains Why A Test Pilot’s Life is Often Routine But Never Boring

Two aircraft enter a test range, one close behind the other. The lead aircraft is carrying a still unproven weapon. The pilot’s mission is to drop this weapon at air speeds pushing the structural limits of his aircraft.  The chase pilot is there to watch the drop and report what he sees. But there is a catch.  Each pilot is flying a different type of aircraft, each with its own set of unpredictable and sometimes unforgiving  aerodynamic instabilities, especially at extremely high airspeeds.  What happens if one or both aircraft becomes unstable while in close proximity of each other? To find out, read Chapter 9 of Mick’s new book The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot.  You can buy it here at Amazon or Kindle.
