Jim Channels Winona (Channeling Jo)

At the risk of losing my "man card" I have to confess that one of my favorite films is "Little Women" (1994) and one of my favorite scenes is towards the end, when "Jo" (aka Winona Ryder...sigh) has finished her manuscript...ties it up in a bow...bites her nails...and prepares to send it off.

I can empathize with her...especially the nail-biting part: today I am sending my manuscript for Notre Dame in the Civil War: Marching Onward to Victory to the publisher (The History Press). It's done!

Stay tuned here and on my "Notre Dame in the Civil War" blog for additional details and production schedule. I'll also be updating that blog more frequently with highlights from the book and extra material and research!

I expect to see a draft of the cover art in a week or so! Exciting!

The book is scheduled to be available late this year (hopefully in time for the holidays!) or early 2011.

Thanks for all the support!
