Book Signing
Saturday's book signing at the Marion Waldenbooks for Lincoln: Fresh from Abraham's Bosom was a success. I signed 19 books until the store sold out. I'm set to be at the Carbondale Waldenbooks this Sunday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. You can also order books online at

Handbook of Old Gallatin County and Southeastern Illinois
Everything appears to be finally straightened out at the printers for the new paperback version of the Handbook of Old Gallatin County and Southeastern Illinois. I should have the order in a couple of weeks.
