MUSTANG wrote:Well, Doc. I just wrapped up the book this past weekend. Finalizing the end notes and bibliography. I'll shoot it off to the publisher shortly and start to work on where the photos should be inserted. In my opinion, it's much better than the old version. Our good friend, Mike Boldt created both the front and back covers and they are fantastic!!! There is a great deal of additional information on Ft. Clark and Brackettville as well as new interviews. I've also pulled some of the information from "Not Thinkin'.... and included it where applicable. I don't have a final count yet but I believe I've added another 150 photos in addition to what was originally included. With luck it will be published late this year. Thanks for asking.

MUSTANG wrote:Well, here's the latest update on my revised book. I know there are one or two of you who may be interested. LOL! As I mentioned earlier, the manuscript is in the hands of the editor and we have been in contact. E-mails have been flying back and forth. I finally wrapped up all the photos; almost 500 made the first cut, although I had initially identified over 400. I had many, many more but it got to be way out of hand. All the captions are finished, photos cropped, enhanced and send to the editor. The original book consisted of 84 pages and 94 photos, maps and illustrations. The revised edition will contain about 310 photos and maps and will probably run 300+ pages. And, it appears that rather than 6" x 9" the new book will be 8 1/2" x 11". So, everything is finally finished. YES!!! I think it will be published in late Fall or early Winter, but no promises as Sam's a might prickly. As for my next project, I think I'll take piano lessons.

Great news! I hope this means that particularly appropriate photos will be hugely printed -- no postage stamp sizes on these. (I exaggerate, but to make a point.)
