After some unfortunate delays, the book about Marvis Frazier‘s life is back on track. Nearly everyone knows that Marvis’s Dad Smokin’ Joe Frazier passed away November 7th – and naturally Marvis was deeply affected, but about the time Marvis and I were re-starting our interview work for “the book”, my own Dad became gravely ill. James Walter Potter, Sr., who I considered a great man, a great father, and a great athlete in his own right, died on January 31st, 2012. Anyone who would like to read more about my Dad can see his obituary at http://www.behefuneralhome.com. So now, partly from a desire to “move on” and partly in a effort to honor our Dads, Marvis and I are going back to work on “the book” and we are going to kick it right into high gear – after all the launch date is only a little over one year away! Thanks, Jamie Potter
PS. Expect to see new posts to this blog at least every week, as well as new features on the website as the launch date approaches. As always, comments are appreciated!
