Pre-order *Searching For Black Confederates* at Amazon and B&N

You can now pre-order Searching For Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The order page is still in the process of being completed, but the basic information about the book is included.

The book is already a #1 New Release at Amazon five months before publication, which is very encouraging.

I don’t believe your credit card will be charged before the book is shipped so go ahead and secure a copy for yourself today. The index is just about completed and this weekend my wife is going to try to take a decent photograph of me for the dust jacket. With that, this project comes to a final close.

    As an author, is there a preferred place for customers to purchase books? I mean, is ordering it from Amazon better than ordering it from a book store such as Powell’s Books? I’ve always wondered what is better for the actual authors of books.

      I don’t have a preference. I do think it is important to give a nod to IndieBound as part of my broader support for independent bookstores.

    This will be like a CAPSTONE to my various other historical resources relating to often brushed-over or never-at-all discussed “DISHARMONY” and “UNION LOYALIST SENTIMENTS” in the Confederacy!

    Kevin, I intend to order 25-50 for our gift shops. Well done and congrats.

      Thanks so much, Eric. Perhaps there will be an opportunity to give a talk in your neck of the woods.
