"Yankee Reconstructed"
Book 2 of the Grenville Chronicles
Now that the the Civil War is over, Jonathan and Susan have moved their family back to Charleston, only to find that peace is easier to declare than to practice. As the reunited country struggles with the problems of Reconstruction, the Grenvilles find themselves swept up into political  rivalries, visits from the Ku Klux Klan, accusations of murder, and civil riots that churn their peaceful streets into battlegrounds. Follow them as they navigate the difficult decade from 1867 to 1877.

Tentative release date: May 2015

We're Thinking About . . .

"The Second Mouse Gets the Cheese" --Second Edition

Things change quickly in the publishing world. Since the appearance of "The Second Mouse" in 2012, social media outlets have quadrupled, traditional publishing houses have collapsed or combined their efforts, more bookstores have closed, new organizations have sprung up to help promote top-flight independent publishers, and the simple tricks of the trade that worked in 2012 are no longer so effective.  Instagram,  Pinterest, and ChimpMonkey have added new dimensions to marketing schemes. Our enterprising little mouse who decided to do things his own way will have to learn some new tricks if he hopes to avoid the traps waiting for him in the coming years.

Tentative Launch date: January 2016

More Audiobooks

Auditions are now open for Narrators and Producers who might be interested in recording "The Road to Frogmore" and "Damned Yankee." ACX now offers special financial incentives for someone who can take on one of these productions and finish it within eight weeks.  And as the weather turns cooler, a recording studio makes a snug  hideaway from the chill.

"Boxed" Sets of Electronic Editions

Smashwords now makes it possible to combine the files of several electronic editions and sell them as a boxed set at a price greatly reduced from the combined cost of the individual volumes.  Such sets would be available through almost all electronic outlets, such as Apple iBooks, Nook Books, and Kobo. We'll be looking into the possibility of doing a set for the series, "The Civil War in South Carolina's Low Country."
