Mark Ferguson, of Telford, PA, was the first to order a signed copy of the Fallen Out hardback. Thanks, Mark!
Yes, I said hardback.
My daughter sells autographed copies of all my paperbacks on our website, plus T-shirts, mugs, and other swag. Now, we're adding hardbacks.
You can also buy the eBooks directly from my website, without having to go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or any other big store. Just go to waynestinnett dot com and click on the Books tab at the top. It's that easy, and it helps with Jordan's college tuition.

Looking forward to it!!!

I can’t wait for Rising Tide and Steady as She Goes. The reviews on Wayward Son are giving me pause.

Before anyone asks, no the next ten books won't have Steady in the title. Steady As She Goes will be followed by Full Speed Ahead in December and Right Full Rudder in March. Later titles will include Flanking Speed, Man Overboard, and Manned And Ready.
See where we're going here?

Yes sir🌴🦩😎

Love your books

Oh, goodie! More sailing!⛵

How about "All Ahead Bendix?" Many of the old engine order telegraphs (EOT) were made by the Bendix Co, who put their name at the bottom of the EOT. If the indicator needle came loose, it would point to the bottom, hence, All Ahead Bendix.

what, no oars? 🤪

Absolutely love your writing
