Book Launch – Elysian Dreams: Volume Two of Crescent City — 23 Comments

  1. Congrats on the release of Elysian Dreams, Jack. And thanks for explaining the meaning of Elysian. When I heard that your book is called Elysian Dreams, I thought it is a noun and not an adjective. Btw, which book are you offering as the giveaway? If I know, then I can post this competition on my blog.

    My own Elysian dream is to tour England and visit all the cultural, historical and places associated with Jane Austen. Will I achieve it? I hope so.

  2. Congratulations on the release of Elysian Dreams.

    My Elysian Dream is (after my husband’s retirement) to spend 4 months in England, Germany, Switzerland & Austria. Then to go to many of the US National Parks.

  3. I have several. I’ve always wanted to tour the U.S. in a camper, for as long as I could, and see as much as I could.
    More closely related to the definition of Elysian though, I would love to spend about a month lazing about Greece.

    I’m really looking forward to reading this series. Thanks for the giveaway. Would you be announcing the winner on this page, too?

  4. I have had New Orleans on my bucket list for a long time. This series might just make me move it to the top of the list! Thanks for the story!

    • I hope you enjoy my attempt to condense all that is the Crescent City to a measly 1,000 pages. Believe me, I’ve only scratched the surface.As I state in the Prologue, to truly understand New Orleans, one must live there.

  5. I would love to be able to go to New Orleans some day! In the winter preferably… I don’t have a good relationship with the heat.
    Your excerpt left me wanting to read the whole story, beginning with Book One. Two more books to my awaiting budget list, (soon to be three, I noticed).
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. It may have been that Jane Austen did not like Bath, but it’s my particular dream to live there for a month and walk every street, square and garden.

    Congratulations on your newest book! I can’t wait to read it and hope that I win a copy…

  7. Congrats on your new book. Love what I read so far. My Elysian Dream would be laying in my bean bag chair, eating snacks and reading books.

  8. Congratulations, Jack!! I recently enjoyed reading your book “Pemberley Ranch,” so I know how great this modern series will be! 🙂

    My own Elysian Dream? To live an entire calendar year in an English village, preferably fairly close to Canterbury, and also have the time to leisurely visit all of the literary sites in the UK to my little heart’s content. I’d like to work on my PhD there, focusing on medieval lit, especially Saint Julian of Norwich, but that’s more than a year and leaves little time for sightseeing; however, that’s still my BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal).

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful excerpt with us; I’d love to have a copy of this book since I have zero book budget at this time. I’ll have to drum up the first volume from somewhere, but where there’s a Will (Darcy, that is), there’s a way! (Please pardon the excruciatingly bad pun; I simply couldn’t resist!)

    With congratulations and warm regards,
    Susanne 🙂

  9. My Elysian dream would be to have one-tenth the writing talent of Jack Caldwell. Other than that, I suppose I’d settle for a year in Europe, seeing everything I’ve read about in Jane Austen and history books (except the gory parts, like the French Revolution).

  10. Congratulations and best wishes. My Elysian dream is to travel to Italy, experience the history, culture, culinary delights, markets, and tour, tour and walk, walk and enjoy this dream come true. After that I would love to escape to a tranquil beach and read, read read.

  11. Thanks for this lovely feature and great giveaway. The excerpt was captivating and enjoyable. My Elysian dream is to escape somewhere warm, soothing, tranquil and relax in the sunshine and soft air. take walks along the shore and read ti my heart’s content.

  12. Your name came up in conversation with Meredith today. So I read the Samples and the reviews. I have only visited New Orleans but enjoyed it (in my mid-twenties) with my husband. My dream would agree with Annie’s except for the beach part – I baby my skin and avoid the sun.

    I did read your other books and enjoyed them but am waiting for the third one in this series to be released. In reading the Samples there just seemed to be some very heavy material and justice has not been served and I would find that too much for which to wait. So congratulations and I will look for the next release to be available.
