Lexington & The Civil War - Cover First Look
Covers are tricky things when it comes to books. We all have different tastes. Overall, I think the industry has come a LONG way in recent years in making covers eye-appealing and the History Press is, in my opinion, one of the best when designing covers for their books. Though this cover isn't exactly what I had in mind, I'm happy with it. I'm less picky than I used to be. So, what do you think? Chime in - good or bad.
Shortly before the book is published, I'll post some introductory comments about some of what's in it and the purpose of the book. At that point, I'll also reveal the "mystery historian" who contributed an essay about a particular subject involving the WBTS and Lexington. That should raise a few eyebrows. ;-) Book video coming soon as well. In the meantime, feel free to post or email me any questions about it.
And, just to keep me "in the saddle", I submitted another book proposal today to a publisher. This is one I've been wanting to write for some time. More to come once I get the green light - assuming I get the green light.
