The end is Nigh…

Yesterday, Feb 26th, marks an important date: to wit, the beginning of the editing process for The Chickamauga Campaign, Volume Three: Barren Victory. I received the first two chapters of edited text from Ted Savas, and have started working through the notes and comments. I also received this prototype of the book cover earlier in the week.

Barren Victory will be published this fall, September 2016. When it appears, it will represent the completion of a 17 year project (start to finish) representing a good chunk of my writing life. Signing off on that last chapter will be both extremely satisfying and feel a bit like I have lost something important.

The editing process should go fairly rapidly. you’d think that after four previous books with Savas-Beatie, I would have learned to do everything right the first time – hah!. Still, the first comments were not angst-inducing.

The end is indeed nigh…

    As a kid, I always looked towards September (and the start of a new school year) with a mix of excitement and dread. This year it will be nothing but joyful anticipation.
    I hope you find something satisfying to fill your void upon completing your (extremely successful!) Chickamauga project. Selfishly, I hope it’s an Atlanta project or Stones River project.
    Congratulations on your accomplishments thus far, and best wishes for continued fulfillment and success in the future.

    Great news. And only partly because it “clears the road” for Resaca. (I’m sure Ted only had a short note here and there…)
