As readers here may recall, I've been working on a book to be published by the History Press which will be about the Civil War in Lexington, Virginia. Unfortunately, my PC was infected with a really nasty virus late last year and this destroyed a number of related files and put me way behind schedule. However, I hope to complete that book and have it to the publisher by year's end. I've also just completed an article for a CW related website that, hopefully, will be posted soon. That will, in short order, be followed by another. I'm also in the early stages of gathering research materials for another CW related book I hope to start on as soon as the Lexington book is completed. I'm very excited about that one as it's topic has not really been addressed in any detail.
In addition to all that, I've also been collecting information about Black Confederate and Confederate slaves. I plan to write a book about that topic, but come at it from an angle which, I hope, will be unique from what you read on the "pro" and "anti" blogs and websites regarding that subject. I've been reading quite a bit lately about self-publishing and I may use Amazon's CreateSpace to publish that particular book. We'll see.
