Oh, my this is going to be a busy year! Hope you are all aware of the great historical events taking place across the nation to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the War Between the States.

I will be in Charleston, S.C. in April — yep, where it all began exactly 150 years ago. Looking forward to doing a book signing at Boone Hall Plantation’s farm store and stopping by other bookstores in the area to sign copies of Noble Cause and Shades of Gray.

On April 30 I’ll be back in Gettysburg at a great bookstore called Pages of the Past, located at 10 York St. There is a Civil War cavalry engagement that day on Baltimore Street so that will be fun to see as well. (Though I have a feeling the traffic won’t be too fun to see).

On May 7, I’ll be at the Hagerstown Mall for Reading Day. There will be dozens of other authors there and plenty of things for the kids to do if you’re in the area. (Also, it’s the day before Mother’s Day, and I’m thinking a signed copy of a historical fiction novel would make a great last-minute gift).

On May 14, I’m looking forward to attending Purcellville Heritage Days in Purcellville, Va. This is a great little Civil War town that was frequented by Mosby’s Rangers. They have some wonderful old-time events planned, including a huge model train display.

The end of May I’ll be back in Gettysburg for a signing at the Gettysburg Visitor Center, and July 9, I’ll be at Rose Hill Manor in Frederick, Md.

I’m really looking forward to a book signing at Prospero’s Books in Manassas, Va. on July 22. There is a Grand Review Parade that day in Old Town Manassas and re-enactments all weekend. The entire town will be taking part in commemorating the first major engagement of the war.

I’m really looking forward to attending these events and hope everyone stops by to say hello if they’re in the area!
