a bit about the book

Night of Flames paints a vivid and terrifying picture of war-torn Europe during WWII. It’s the tale of a Krakow university professor Anna and her husband Jan, a Polish cavalryman. Separated and forced to flee occupied Poland, Anna soon finds herself caught up in the Belgian Resistance, while Jan becomes embedded in British Intelligence efforts to contact the Resistance in Poland. He seizes this opportunity to search for his lost wife Anna. Through the long night of Nazi occupation, Anna, Jan and the ordinary people of two countries fight a covert war of sabotage and resistance against the overwhelming might of the German war machine.

The book is available to the trade by Independent Publisher's Group.

Maybe it's a sign of age but I'm continually amazed by the technology that surrounds us. The latest revelation I discovered (perhaps old news to those of you more up to date) is Blog Talk Radio. I have to thank my friend and fellow author, Stacey Kannenberg, for putting me on to this. She was actually the first person ever interviewed on the program. At any rate, I was interviewed by David Ewen, host of the "Today's Author" program on Monday, January 14th. We discussed the book, the task of writing, finding a publisher, all in about fifteen minutes. It was a very unique experience and a lot of fun to do. The end product is quite impressive, especially since I didn't have to do anything except talk. What's next? To listen to the interview (complete with images) click onto Play Interview

I am especially fond of historical
novels and was particularly intere
sted in acquiring this book because
of my own Polish heritage. Family
still reside in suburban Krakow, ne
ar Wadowicie. It was wonderful to
read about how much the Polish Resi
stance was able to accomplish durin
g Nazi occupation. And, that Poles
were the lead discoverers of the V2
rocket. They are a hardy lot to be
sure, quite determined and resourc
eful under very trying conditons.
My thanks to Mr. Jacobson for the
remarkable read.
