Celebrate V-J Day with 28 Months of Heaven and Hell by J.D. Karns

Today we're celebrating the cover reveal of 28 Months of Heaven and Hell by J.D. Karns on a special day V-J Day. For those who don't know, V-J Day celebrates the announcement of surrender by Japan on August 17, 1945. What makes this day significant for this book, you ask? 28 Months of Heaven and Hell takes place in the Pacific Campaign of WWII. Why don't we let this book speak for itself....

About 28 Months of Heaven and Hell and Author J.D. Karns
J.D. Karns is an 82 year old author making his debut with this novel. His true to life / WWII historical fiction novel is based on the journal kept by Carl Lee Young who served in the navy on the DE 416 USS Melvin R. Nawman. Karns has taken Mr. Young's journal entries and brilliantly woven them with fiction creating an entertaining, breath taking, and highly factual account of WWII from this sailor's point of view. You will experience everything from the great typhoon of '44 to Iwo Jima to Okinawa to the atom bomb and on to the signing of the peace treaty. It is an emotional roller coaster of a ride between the action and the family back home, waiting and wondering. The realism of not only the war, but also the era, has been captured with expertise.

Carl's younger brother, Charles, has longed to hear his big brother's WWII story. Carl promised his little brother when he returned from the war, that some day he would tell him all about it. That day came in 2011 when Charles began receiving journal entries from his big brother. The emails totaled 168 entries. Both Carl and his younger brother Charles are excited to have the story being turned into a historic novel.
