A NOTE FROM JOHN SNYDER:
I cannot believe how fast this year is flying past. It seems like Christmas 2017 was just a few weeks ago. But, the reality is that Christmas 2018 is quickly approaching ... especially for me. I have been very busy working with my publisher, Hachette Book Group/FaithWords. Most of the preliminary work has been done on my new book, Jacob's Bell - A Christmas Story, which is scheduled to be released nationally into bookstores and retailers and online on October 2, 2018. The cover design is completed, all the edits have been made, the advanced media and review copies have been printed and are being distributed to the news media and to book reviewers. Within the next few weeks, I will be meeting with the marketing team from my publisher; my marketing director, my online marketing director and my publicist, to put the final touches on the marketing plan for Jacob's Bell. Things are coming together very well.
Hachette Book Group has the option rights to my next book. I have submitted Tangier's Song, a contemporary love story, The Bracelet, A Vietnam Era love story and Something Special for Christmas, another Christmas story. I am hopeful they will be interested in purchasing the rights to one of them. I should know with the next 30-days.
I hope you enjoy my newsletter (below) and ask you to pass it on to your friends and invite them to my website to subscribe for future issues. Thanks!
I originally self-published this book back in 1999. In the Holiday season of 2000, I sold nearly 25,000 copies making it a best selling book in several markets. Also that year, Family Circle Magazine featured The Golden Ring in a nine page condensed version in their holiday edition. Because of the books success, Warner Books offered me a book deal and they published their edition in 2001. A German language edition was also published in Germany that year. Sign copies of The Golden Ring are available on my webpage for just $10 (hardcover). To purchase one or to learn more click here.

The Golden Ring: Movie News
Several movie producers have teamed up to present my screenplay for The Golden Ring - A Christmas Story to several studios with the goal of obtaining funds to make it into a movie. Keep your fingers crossed.
"Jacobís Bell by John Snyder is a splendid achievement and 'rings' with many truths. Snyder cares about his characters and makes us come to care as well. He gives us Jacob McCallum, a man who had it all until his addiction to alcohol took everything away and he lost his fortune, his family and his way in life. Snyder writes with simplicity and depth about the harshness and vagaries that life can bring but also about its beauty. He shows a reverence for the past and memories that may be from years ago but which are given as fresh and as near as this minute. His prose resounds with a love of people and the world and is grounded in the particulars of our America - its cities and byways, its taverns and highways. Jacobís Bell is a book that has, in my judgment, exceptional merit. It registers the redemptive power of forgiveness and love and I highly recommend it.

ďJacobís Bell takes readers on a journey of success & failure, love & hate, bitterness & repentance. This tale promises to become a Christmas classic that transports each of us to many familiar and unfamiliar places all the while calling us to a place of forgiveness and restoration. Jacobís Bell is a gift that reminds us of the TRUE meaning of Christmas and the forgiveness that comes when we trust in Godís indescribable giftÖhis Son Jesus. Jacobís Bell will hold a special place in our family library and Christmas tradition!Ē

ďI was so moved by John Snyderís latest book, Jacobís Bell. It reminded me of Godís blessings in our lives and how there is nothing more important than generosity, family, faith and forgiveness. With these things, the impossible becomes possible. John has reminded us why Christmas is so special, and I am truly blessed to have read this remarkable story. Amen.Ē
