Having the pleasure of seeing this book grow into what it is now, I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a great love story! It made me laugh and cry and laugh again. I couldn't put the book down and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I found myself living the life of the characters and feeling what they felt. I have told all of my friends about this book and I know you will too. Take a chance on this new author! I am waiting to see what else he will come up with.

Format: Paperback
Jackson's tale (to be continued, I hope) is set in the beautiful countryside around Lakenheath and Mildenhall,in England's Suffolk county. I was particularly intrigued from the start because I've spent time there, and the descriptions are so good that I could almost smell the place (and most certainly the pub food)! The plot, a quiet love story, unfolds delicately. The protagonist has a strong sense of self and is willing to let his own story - including his guarded but practical approach to a new love - unfold graciously. His love interest, who is much less tentative, is so intrigued that he's willing to wait to see what happens. This book has a kind of tenderness that is often missing in contemporary novels. The love story is courtly and patient. It's not a page-turner, but you won't want it to be. Just enjoy the good read. The author introduces the novel with a hook, which he deftly brings around again to close the book, allowing for future developments in the life of the protagonist. Will our hero find love again in North Dakota?

I was drawn into a new world from the first page of Mr. Jackson's book. He pulls the reader out of the fog of the ordinary and into a brave new world where the main characters are gay. He has created a world of believable people who participate in the full scope of human emotions of love, joy and sorrow. Long after the book ends, thoughts of The Capt'n and Nigel remain. All in all, Thirty Days and Counting is an excellent read and I am looking forward to a sequel.

Format: Paperback
From the moment you begin reading this novel, you are drawn into the story along with Jackson's well-developed characters. Your senses become stimulated by his vivid descriptions of the emotions they are feeling, the places they visit, and the food they eat which will make your mouth water. It is a beautifully written story of love, life, and the experiences we share with our partners, family, and friends and how the small things we all do for others in our lives are what really matters since they are what makes a difference in other people's lives and also make us the person we become. This is one of those rare gems of a story that as you read it you visualize everything and keep thinking how wonderful it would be as a motion picture. This is a story that should be shared with your life partner, family, and friends.

I have never read anything that dealt with the subject of homosexual love. I read tbis book in one setting as a favor to a dear friend. I wasn't expecting to get caught up in the romance of Nigel and Cap'n. This book showed me that love is love regardless of the genders. The same feelings of nervousness, anxiety, joy, and sadness apply to same sex couples. Mr. Jackson wove the whole spectrum of emotions within the main characters relationship - from their first meeting until death parted them. I will not go so far as to say that gay love will be at the top of my reading list - but I will certainly look forward to reading anything that this talented author writes in the future.

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. The author does a great job helping you feel what the characters are going through. I laughed and cried a great deal. I don't want to give the plot away so I will only say that throughout the book you feel as if you know the characters and feel what they are feeling. I love this book so much and hope Mr. Jackson will write more. I want to know what happens to Jack after this book. This would make a great movie as well. Thanks for touching me.

I loved reading the story unfold and I enjoyed the characters but what made me only give it three stars was killing off one of the characters I grew to love throughout the book. Wasn't looking for any tragic love story endings and that's what ruined the experience for me.

It has been a long time since I came across a book that stunned me the way this book did. The love that develops between these two men is slow, tender yet passionnate, the kind that makes your heart melts just reading about it. It's the kind of love that you get to be a little bit jealous of if you haven't experienced it once in you own life. Don't get me wrong though, it is in no way a pink-and-glitter-too-sweet-it's-almost-disgusting love story. It's heartbreaking in fact. And the way it's written... This author has a way with word that you pretty much feel as if you were the one living the story. I laughed as if I were the one the jokes were being told to, I loved as if I were the one saying I love you for the first time, I cried as if it were my heart that has been broken.

More About the Author

Terence Jackson was born at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. His father was in the U.S. Air Force and his mother was a nurse prior to having children. Terence's credits his love for the written word to his mother, and avid reader who taught him to read years before he began schooling. His first novel, Thirty Days and Counting, is filled with insights into his own life and his family history. Though fictionalized, there are a lot of truths in his work. The second novel, Von Dred, is a lenghty vampire tale that covers over a century in the life of William Smythe, the main character. Von Dred was inspired by Terence's love of the vampire genre and a student of his at North Dakota State University who in fact designed the cover for the book. His next work is a sequel to Von Dred which was published in the Fall of 2010 - The Book of Jacob. Jacob brings the Von Dred story full circle with twists and turns and a few other surprises.
Terence is now working on a series of books about vampires who inhabit the unused and abandoned tunnels that crisscross underneath the city of London. The first of the series - Thavs - was published in July of 2012. The next in the series - Thom Blood, Bloody Confessions, and Tunnel of Blood will soon follow. The series is called Blood Underground.
Other things are in the works, not just vampire stories.
