There has been progress, though! The illustrations were due in mid-August and I have already turned those in. The History Press does a terrific job of incorporating a good amount of illustration material in all their books and this one will be no different! I sent them thirty photographs, etc., and I am confident that 20-25 of those will enliven the pages of the narrative!
With the illustration material in the hands of The History Press, it also means their artists are working on a nifty cover! I can't wait to see what they come up with (they have some great people there!) and you can be sure I will be sharing the cover art here on the blog as soon as I have it!
When the book is done and ready to go to press in the next several weeks you can also be assured I will return to blogging here in earnest...there is so much to tell about Notre Dame's epic Civil War story!
