An Early Christmas Present & Book Signing Tomorrow

Well, the Christmas season was ushered in with a bang yesterday when I received an e-mail from the Library of Virginia stating that The Battle of New Market Heights: Freedom Will Be Theirs by the Sword has been nominated for the best nonfiction work for that esteemed institution’s 2012 book awards. Needless to say, I was quite taken aback when I received this notification, but also truly grateful to all of you who have read the book and let me know how much you enjoyed it. What an honor!

And speaking of book signings, I will be at the John J.Wright Museum starting at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning signing books. If you’re in the area, stop on by and say hey (and buy a copy or two while you’re at it)!
