I must say, the soft cover version of my book, Richard Gatlin and the Confederate Defense of Eastern North Carolina (The History Press, 2015), is a good-looking, good feeling book, but for those of you who do all or most of your reading on eBooks now, it is available in Kindle version from amazon.com for just $9.99 plus tax. I am a Barnes and Noble Nook reader myself, but the Nook version is not available yet so I downloaded the free Kindle app for my Nook Android tablet and bought a Kindle copy of the book.
For any of you who would like an author-signed softcover version of the book, I have a limited number of copies that I can sell at $20.00 each, including tax and shipping (domestic only). Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get together on how to pay and where to send the book. Sorry I don't take credit card payments. Because most sales will be through amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com, or through book stores and historic sites, I just won't have enough personal copies to make credit card sales feasible.
I encourage everyone to get a copy, though, regardless of format or source. You and I will both be glad you did! As one of my favorite readers said in his excellent review, "This is a great read for Civil War buffs and for those wanting to see real life in the nineteenth century!"
