The preliminary reading of First Fallen is going well, half of the book is in excellent condition, and the rest is very promising!
It may make it to a variety of publishers before long, for the first round of rejection letters, I am sure. But, many out there are pulling for the book, and emergingcivilwar.com won't review it if it is self-published, so it HAS to find a home somewhere!
In the mean time, here is the elegant Colonel Ellsworth, whom journalist Ned House referred to as "a singularly handsome man."
And Ned should know, as he was a connoisseur of handsome men.
