I wanted to give everyone an update as to the status of the book on Stuart’s Ride during the Gettysburg Campaign that I did with J. D. Petruzzi.

Originally, the book was supposed to have been published by now. We had hoped and expected that it would have been out by now, or at least that was the plan. However, the History and Military Book Clubs were evaluating the book, and that process took an unreasonably long period of time, something like two months. That obviously trashed the time line for the release of the date, and meant that we missed the 143rd anniversary event commemorating Corbit’s Charge in Westminster, MD this weekend. We had originally hoped that the book would be out in time for us to sign books there. Unfortunately, that didn’t come to pass.

The good news, though, is that the book clubs have apparently FINALLY finished their reviews and the book goes to the printer tomorrow. That means that in six weeks or so, we will have books. Stay tuned. More to follow…..

    That’s excellent news! I was hoping HBC would pick it up since I have quite a few bonus credits accumulated.

    We’re told that they won’t pick it up until 2007. The Military Book Club wants it now.

    Yes, finally we get it in print – the HBC, after about 2 months of reviewing it, decided that they just didn’t have room for it. However, as Eric said, they are going to include it next year.

    Tomorrow (Monday) it goes to the printer and will appear by mid-August. Anyone who has pre-ordered it from Amazon, other online sellers, or directly from our publisher (reserve signed copies from http://www.savasbeatie.com/StuartRide.html) should be receiving it by then or shortly after.

    I guess I’ll just have to pick it up from Savas or the MBC then.
