More Updates

1. ) Many thanks to Kristopher White and the ever-increasing group of talented authors over at the Emerging Civil War blog for allowing me to write a guest post about my book! If you haven’t been following this blog over the past couple of weeks, you’ve really been missing out. Don’t deprive yourself any longer!

2.) If you happen to be going to the ASALH convention in Richmond next week, be sure to stop by the book signing that will be taking place Thursday October 6th at 6:00 p.m. I'll be there signing books and I hope to see you there!

3.) Finally, today is the 147th anniversary of the Battle of New Market Heights. If you’re the reflecting type, take a moment tonight and think about the significance of September 29, 1864.

A Busy Weekend Awaits

Go ahead Johnny Reb. Make my day.
If you happen to be in the Richmond area over the weekend, please be sure to check out one of the free events that I’ll be signing books at!

Tomorrow I will be speaking at the “Henrico County: Gateway to Richmond” Symposium along with Frank O’Reilly, John Coski, and Robert E.L. Krick. The symposium runs from 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and there will be a book signing by all authors after the last lecture.

After that, I’m off to one of my favorite sites in the whole world – Fort Harrison, which in my opinion is the crown jewel of all the sites operated by Richmond National Battlefield Park. I’ll be there on Saturday and Sunday signing books and portraying Lt. Nathan Edgerton, who was one of the Medal of Honor recipients from New Market Heights.

All in all, it should be a great time and I hope to see you there!

Book Stuff & Civil War Trust Interview

Well, in case you hadn’t heard, my New Market Heights book is out and about, so be sure to head over to your local bookstore and demand that they carry it! Assuming, of course, you have any bookstores left in your town. If not, you can order it here and here, among many other places.

In the world of book signings, I will be speaking at what looks to be a first rate symposium entitled “Henrico County: Gateway to Richmond” this Friday and doing a signing after the event. I will also be at Fort Harrison this weekend signing books, so stop on by and say hello if you get a chance. I’ll be updating this site with new book signings as requests come in, so keep checking back to see if I’ll be coming to a theater near you.

Finally, I wanted to point you over to the Civil War Trust’s website where you can read a brand new interview with yours truly about the book. Many thanks to Jim Lighthizer, Rob Shenk, and the great crew over at the CWT for making this happen!

As always, if you’d like to set up an interview or book signing, just shoot me an e-mail and let me know!

I apologize for the lack of substantive posts as of late, but after the book craze slows down look for a return to posts that don’t have to do with my book.
