Book Update.

I pitched the Sheridan Peterson story to Parachutist Magazine since they got an intro to Petey with Mooshie's piece in 2011. They are very supportive of my book and will run some kind of announcement in the June issue, but they indicated they've had enough of the Eagle-Eyed One, and Cooper, too, surprisingly. Their words were, "...remember this is a general interest skydiving magazine..."

Maybe they'd go for a piece on Robb?  Hmmmm.

Making the rounds with the book announcement: NPR, Fresh Air, This American Life, all the local newspapers, NY Times Seattle desk, Clyde and Ground Zero, C2C, all the local TV stations. Feels good to be back in the saddle and ridin' hard.

Did you try the Seattle Times book editor?  I'm curious if she responded.

Book Update, April 21, 2015:

I raised the price to $9.99, which is what GG's charging for Skyjack. It seemed proper to do so.

Sail just emailed me to say that he has bought a second copy!  Now, his wife can read along with him!!!

Ah, to think that DB Cooper has deepened a romance....

Also, Atlas Media Corp of NYC called to say that they are making a DBC docu to be part of their American Heroes. series. It was amazing to learn how screwed-up they were on the details, and to be fairly advanced in their production.  Whew. They thought Tina was in charge of the flight attendants, and they had never heard of Alice Hancock. I offered to send the producer I talked with, a review copy, but he declined and said he was going to buy a copy! (Glad I raised the price! - I made six bucks on the phone call - yeah!)

Lastly, I'm pretty sure of who the prankster is at the Mountain News, but I ain't saying in order to protect the identity of the guilty.

No, it's more like something's getting smelly in the back of the refrigerator.

A new book has hit the market that may be of interest to DB Cooper fans.

Falling Over Reno - The True Story of the Skyjacker's Wife, is the account of Mary Stevenson being Robb Heady's girlfriend - and then wife - as he skyjacked his airplane and then did time in Lompoc prison.

I just started reading it, and I'll give you a full report when I'm finished.

Is Mary Stevenson from Stevenson-Carson WA?  Could she be related to the DB Coopoer suspect reported there by the girl holding an ice cream cone?

And Robb did the jump to prove his undying love?

Nah.
