Sarah Keeney, the marketing director at Savas-Beatie, informed us today that the completed copies of One Continuous Fight: The Retreat from Gettysburg and the Pursuit of Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, July 4-14, 1863 will ship from the printer tomorrow, right on schedule. Actually seeing a copy of the finished book is only a few days away…..

UPDATE, 10:00 PM: J.D. just called. He spoke to Ted Savas a little while ago–Ted called him on his way into an Iron Maiden concert, of all things. The books shipped today, not tomorrow, and Ted told J.D. that the entire first printing has already been sold. With Plenty of Blame to Go Around: Jeb Stuart’s Controversial Ride to Gettysburg, it took two weeks for the first printing to sell out. This first printing was significantly larger than the one for Plenty of Blame, and it sold out before the books even shipped from the printer.

Geez, we might actually make a few bucks on this one…..

    Awsome Eric. I’m going to try for a copy at the Farnsworth House. Brian

    Great to hear Eric. I’ll plan on doing my review for the Free Lance-Star sometime over the next month then. (BTW: I had quite a few people express interest in our Baseball project when I spoke at the Fredericksburg CW Round Table last night.)

    Hmmm….I wonder if there will be one in your trunk next week.

    J.D. called me last night with the good news – pretty amazing.

    Strange how I found myself driving past the Lexus dealership today … ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks, guys. It’s pretty exciting.

    Fear not, Phil. Between JD, Mike, and me, we will have 300 copies. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mike, be careful not to spend that money before it’s been paid to you…..

    Sorry, guys. Savas just called, and they’re not sending our 300 copies – they need them to fill orders instead. One, incidentally, is going to Jennifer Lopez. She asked that only Eric and I sign it.


    (Relax, Mike – I’m kidding!)

    No worries J.D. JLo was only interested in me back when I was a movie star. Now I’m finding that more intellectual women are attracted to me. You know the type, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson etc. ๐Ÿ™‚
