Jasper's War and information on Operation: Next Chapter

Idgie Says:
International intrigue and spy games intertwined into a novel that helps real life soldiers when you purchase a copy.  Really, what could be better?

Greenwich, Connecticut socialite Jaspar Moran has it all-a magnificent estate, two beautiful children and a loving husband, Trevor, serving as the Secretary of the Treasury. Protected, admired and living in the lap of luxury, Jaspar is reeling from the news that his government jet has crashed just as her children vanish without a trace. An ominous message warns her to keep silent about her husband's role in the President's economic plan. Or else.

 Determined to save her children, she'll go to hell and back, form alliances with assassins, traitors and Mafioso, and commit unspeakable acts-if that's what it takes. With alarms sounding around the world, hunted from all sides, and unsure of who to trust, she finds herself depending on a mysterious figure without an identity. Jaspar journeys from the Australian outback to the palazzos of Rome, the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, and to the magnificence of the Vatican, in her quest.

Can she rescue her children before the plot to crash the global economy is unleashed?

Lowell, a Vietnam Vet who travels the world as an international tax attorney gives back to the men and women who have served America with every sale of his thriller, and the initiative he created called OPERATION: NEXT CHAPTER. Through this program, he is offering hope to the hopeless, light to those who cannot see, and ability back to our wounded warriors in helping to rebuild their lives.
He donates ALL PROFITS – 100 percent including printing costs -- from the sale of the book, to a nonprofit organization who helps injured warriors returning from war. Through his initiative, OPERATION: Next Chapter, he has raised more than $16,000 and has provided more than 100 voice-activated laptops to Soldiers’ Angels Project Valour-IT program. These laptops are for the severely wounded or injured who are not able to use their hands.

______________________________________________ YORK, Dec. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a great way to put holiday spending into appropriate context while accelerating this wonderful day of caring by helping those far less fortunate and truly in need of our generosity.
Cym Lowell, author of "Jaspar's War" and creator of OPERATION: NEXT CHAPTER, has much to be thankful for: a devoted wife, wonderful children, beautiful, healthy grandchildren, and great, personal success beyond whatever he dreamed possible early in life. For Lowell, it truly is a wonderful life.
"We all have dreams," says Lowell, "which need to be real and achievable. When dreams end, so does life. My goal is to make sure every soldier, Marine, airman and sailor on the waiting list receives a laptop. We all know how essential it is to have a computer in the world of today. 

In less than six months, and with the generosity of other nonprofit organizations and corporate businesses that supported OPERATION: NEXT CHAPTER, more than 66 laptops have been provided to the 200 wounded warriors currently on the waiting list. 

"We are honored to be working with Cym, a true 'hero' who knows the meaning of giving and continues to give from his heart," said Jennifer Cernoch, Ph.D., vice president of Operations, Soldiers Angels'.

For Lowell, Giving Tuesday is an all-year affair. Anyone who wants to contribute to OPERATION: NEXT CHAPTER and help provide a computer -- and through it, access to the world -- to a deserving disabled vet, can find more information about this program at

PATRIOT PAWS SERVICE DOGS is a new addition to the ONC initiative and supports wounded warriors by training service dogs. Lowell learned about the great need for specially trained service dogs after talking with the wounded warriors he met through Soldiers’ Angels. These service dogs help our returning heroes healing from mobile disabilities and PTS regain physical and emotional independence. For wounded warriors working through PTS, this program has become another area of support for veterans, but is a program that goes unfunded by the Veterans Administration. Cym is excited to support Patriot PAWS and continue helping wounded warriors across the country.
