TRADE THE DAY Guest Author: Jeff Edwards

By - August 7, 2013

On August 23, starting at midnight, I will be hosting a special event called Trade the Day: Spotlight on Team Alaina. During this twenty-four hour blog-a-thon, proceeds from sales of my new book, The Trade, made on my publisher's website at will go to benefit Team Alaina for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. In the weekdays leading up to the big event, I will continue to introduce you to two of the day's scheduled special guests, some which will be guest blogging, some who will be hosting giveaways of autographed books and other goodies, and some who will be doing both!  Get to know this fantastic group of people right here, and come back on August 23 to join us for a day of 24 hours, 23 guest authors, and 1 goal...a cure.

It is my pleasure to introduce our next guest author:



Jeff Edwards is a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer, and an Anti-Submarine Warfare Specialist.  His naval career spanned more than two decades and half the globe, from chasing Soviet nuclear attack submarines during the Cold War, to launching cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf.

Trained extensively in mainframe computers, weapons systems, and naval combat tactics, he brings an experience-based edge of authenticity to his writing.  Collectively, his novels have won the Admiral Nimitz Award for Outstanding Naval Fiction, the Reader’s Choice Award, the Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award for Adventure Writing, the Military Writer’s Society of America Gold Medal for Navy Fiction, the Independent Publishers of America Silver Medal for Military Fiction, and the American Author Medal.

He lives in California, where he consults for the Department of the Navy.


Jeff’s son, Joshua, died in 2002 from Osteosarcoma, at the age of 17.  Jeff’s first novel was dedicated to Josh’s memory.


The world has forgotten the true nature of terror.  It’s about to be reminded…

A military revolt in southeastern Russia puts a former hard-line Soviet leader in command of a ballistic missile submarine and its arsenal of nuclear weapons.  His goal: re-ignite the communist revolution, and recapture the might and glory of the fallen Soviet Union.

Without warning, Russia, Japan, and the United States become hostages in a scheme of international nuclear blackmail.  When the warheads start falling and people begin dying, no one can pretend that it’s a bluff.

As the earth rushes toward extinction, a lone U.S. Navy warship must penetrate the Siberian ice pack to destroy the submarine before it can destroy the world.
