Buy My Book: There's Still Time Before Christmas!

As I posted some months ago, my Historical Novel, Benning's War, is available in print. And the price is slightly lower, too! Wow! I think it's $13.98 right now, so hurry over! Meanwhile, re-read my original post from some months ago:

Yeee-Hah! Guess what? "Benning's War" is finally available in Print! That's right! You can order the book I slaved over, for years, in paperback! Ohhhh, I am so excited I can hardly believe it!


"Benning's War" is my very first literary 'child', and I am proud of it. I think it works real well as an adventure tale, as a love story, as a story of sibling rivalry and of growth. In my opinion it also works fairly well as History. No, it's no text book. But it hits enough important points, in relating a story of the American Revolution, that any reader can learn something about our Founding Fathers.

You see, as important as the Washingtons, Jeffersons, Adamses, and such were, the Revolution was won by ordinary Americans. Men and Women much like you and me, living in a simpler, but harder time. Men and Women who wanted freedom, and could only find it by throwing off their British parents. And my book doesn't celebrate the 'Greats' of the Revolution so much as the ordinary people who fought, died, suffered, won, celebrated.

And remember that it is also available as an ebook: Buy "Benning's War" in ebook!

The ebook is now available at! Buy other epress ebooks there, too! I know the writers, and they are very talented, and their work is impressive! Go! Buy!

See? Excited! Can you imagine what would happen if a producer saw the book? Hehehee! Movie Rights?


Okay, I'm calmer now. ; )

BU always has some financial excuse, but they're true.

I will pick this book of yours up one of these days, but in the mean time the best I can do is post an image link on my site of the cover directing clickers to lulu.

Would you prefer I link to your post?

Also, suggestion to camojack and abfreedom, pop on over and paint some praise upon the book at it's entry at lulu

BU: Either is more than I could ask! Thanks!

Brooke: Well? Heheheee! Thanks, Darlin'!

Alright, Benning; you've convinced me! I'll have to wait until January though. I've spent so much money this month it's pathetic!

Some folks at work have told me they ordered a copy (one of them is my boss!). That's a great feeling! 'Course now they look at me funny. "What's a janitor doing, writing a book? Hmmm ..."
