    Publisher Found

    I had good news today.. My Dad who passed away 3 yrs ago was in the process of getting his book thru the process. I have plenty of time on my hands, and asked my mom if she heard anything about the book. In those 3 years, the book publisher went thru some personel changes, and we had to start over with the process..until today, when we received word that Heritage books WILL take on my fathers works. I have plenty of calling to do getting rights to use certain print, but atleast its a start ! The book will be based on the French & Indian War, and the rough draft of the book is on about 6 inches of 8 1/2 X 11 paper. Its only the begining, but I'm proud to be able to continue a dream my dad had before he passed.

    2BT that is absolutely one of the best things you can do for your father and I am sure he would be proud of you! I salute you for keeping his dream alive, and I will buy a copy the 1st day they are available so please keep us updated!
