It's Images of America Month

I’ve just realized it’s only 19 days before the release date!  Images of America: Albion and Noble County comes out August 24th, months ahead of when I originally thought it would. Emily and I worked hard on this book, a photo heavy look at local history that’s part of Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America line … I guess the title hinted at that, didn’t it?

You can see the book description at the publisher’s website:

http://www.arcadiapublishing.com/9781467114516/Albion-and-Noble-County,

and don’t forget to check out all their other great history books. It’s already listed for preorder on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites.

Save the date for some upcoming appearances: Look for us in the fireplace room of the Kendallville Public Library main branch, on September 9th at 6:30 p.m. I’ll give a brief presentation on the book, and also have copies available for sale.  

We’ll also be at the Stone’s Trace Pioneer Festival near Ligonier, where we’ve been invited to do a book signing between 1-5 p.m. Saturday, September 12th. It’s a great historical site that gets mentioned more than once in the book.

Look for more events coming up—and thanks to everyone for your support!

good luck with it. I have ones from this series for my area and they're always interesting

The company sent me a local one as an example before we started our project -- they're really well done, and interesting ... sometimes even if you're not from that area!

Yes they are. Sometimes I wish there were more details to go with the images but that's not really their thing I guess.

No, it's not. I had to cut almost 5,000 words from my finished writing, even knowing I didn't have much to begin with.

yeah. That's too bad because honestly I'd want the detail

I found a way around that: We're launching a website that will eventually feature the stories I didn't have room to put in the book. Right now it just has extra pictures (modern day at the moment, later more historical ones), and I'll announce it sometime in the next couple of days:
