A lot has happened since I blogged last.

A lot has happened since I blogged last. Had a nice event at Lestat’s, on Park, in San Diego. Met a lot of nice people, and had some good discussions with some liberal and conservative passersby.

Most, even if they didn’t agree with the premise of my novel, seemed to enjoy a free-flowing discussion of American History. On Saturday 4 May, one man in particular though, talked with me for less than ten minutes. In the short time he was at my display, I could tell that he didn’t approve of my book.

When I got home, I checked my e-mail and found a note from him telling me that he thought I was a seditionist and should be careful that the Feds don’t arrest me. I responded that I wasn’t taking sides in the original conflict, and that my storyline is a glimpse of what I see in society.

His response was that I’ve cleverly woven a story that makes me the equivalent of Timothy McVey. I’ve done a rough estimate, and think I’ve spoken to over 9,000 people about my book in the past year. I guess the odds were that I’d run into at least one person who was offended by my storyline.

Anyway, I made a slight adjustment to my schedule of events. The book signing at Spare Times Grill (on Memorial Day, 27 May) has been moved to the South Boston – Halifax County Museum at 1540 Wilborn Ave, South Boston, VA. The museum is normally closed on Mondays. They’ll be open just for my event. We’ll be open from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. If there’s enough interest, the Museum Director told me she would keep the museum open. South Boston, VA is less than 90 minutes from the Appomattox Court House.

I hope you’ll stop by, if you’re in the area.

Thanks for your interest.

Jim
