Reflections Media just featured Forever Across The Marsh as their Editor's Pick for the summer. Very cool. Here's a summary of the article if you're interested: #1 Amazon Best Seller in multiple categories. Pearson signed a deal with largest independent producer of audiobooks (Tantor Media of Recorded Books) to produce it. The book weaves together several stories like Forrest Gump. Pearson says, "Readers are connecting with the book because it helps them look at their personal struggles. If we are struggling, then we haven’t given up. If we are struggling, then we still believe in hope and change. Readers relate to that message. And they enjoy laughing, even if it means laughing at some of their own struggles."
Thank you all for making this book a success! - Jeff
P.S. The kid's book on birds looks like a good one too.🙂

"WOW, What a book! I read about 10 books a month and this one was by far one of
the best I have read. I laughed, I cried and even got mad. This is a great read.”
"I read at least 3 books a week, but once in a while one stands way above the rest. There is not just one thing that makes it so unputdownable, but grabs you from the beginning and holds you to the last page. It like going back to the excitement of childhood, it's like a family get together. It has action, adventure, mystery, love and faith all put together in a story that will stay with you. I loved it and am eagerly looking forward to another book from this author."
"My bookclub this past Friday had a discussion about the journey this book took us on!! As we talked we realized we all had come to the same conclusion. The events-the funny and the sad-all were placed by the author as he led you to the meaning of his book... it is all about hope. I recommend this book as a very special read. Hope continues always..."
"I received this book as a Christmas gift and I finished it before New Year's Eve! I loved the story line and the way the characters were woven together throughout the book. Such a good read - I've already recommended it to several friends!"
"I loved this book. I haven't laughed that much in years and I read this until 5:00 in the morning for I just couldn't stop reading and I am a 87 year OLD woman."
"A thoroughly enjoyable read. Interesting characters with lots of flaws, and their own way of handling a lot of odd situations. Fun!"
"Very few realize Georgia has over one hundred miles of coastline, fourteen barrier islands, and thousands of miles of tidal shoreline. Jeff Pearson's book invites readers to appreciate the beauty of the water while recognizing the many dangers that seemingly await its visitors . . . I found myself captivated to the storyline and could not put the book down. I would give it more than five stars if possible!"
"What a delightful pleasure to come across this great new storyteller with his authentic voice, at once warm, engaging, witty, filled with surprises at every turn and the capacity to hold one's interest. He stares the darkness straight in the face and somehow manages to find the light within . . . Pearson is reminiscent of great Southern writing; let's hope he keeps writing. His voice is real."
"Absolutely wonderful book, I was hooked from the beginning. The characters are superbly written making you feel a real connection to them. I can see myself re-reading this book again and again."
