November Ever After: What readers have learned

       The Marshall University football plane crash is part of American sports history. The whole story, however, has never been told. That's all changed with the release of "November Ever After," a memoir written by a former MU defensive back who knew most of the players who died on the night of November 14, 1970. I've included a few factoids below that provides a clearer picture of what makes my book so very unique and so different than anything else that's ever been done on the topic. Here's a sampling of what you'll learn in reading a story whose time has finally come.
  • Previously-produced documentaries and the movie We Are Marshall created a much-needed national platform for the story. But, those media productions are only appetizers. November Ever After is the full-course meal.
  • This is high-profile sports history that's loaded with eyewitness input.
  • The complete story is so amazing that it sounds like fiction, but it’s not. As readers pour through the chapters, they discover how things played out in real life.
  • Content-rich memoir has provocative story line which includes romance, premonition, prophecy, denial, depression, revelation, relief and ecstasy.
  • This book is one-of-a-kind. It tells an old story with a twist that’s new and true.
  • Discover what things were really like when Marshall started rebuilding its football program in the months following the November plane crash.
  • Learn why life would never be the same for those who were left behind in the aftermath of the tragedy.
  • Get an up-close-and-personal look at personal relationships of girlfriends, personal friends, family members and loved ones of those players who perished.
  • The crash squashed a potentially-bloody race riot on the Marshall campus.
