I wrote this book and wanted you to get my perspective. Like many of us, I decided to finally write a book on a subject that I enjoyed to read about. I decided on the American Revolution in the South because I never really felt the coverage of events in the South was adequately revealed in the other published works. In my research I did find some Southern coverage, but is was still not as comprehensive as I felt it should have been. I decided to cover the events in as much detail as I could because it seemed to bring the actions to life more. This was my first book and it took 4 years to write part-time. I enjoyed it and was actually surprised to discover just how lost I could get in the research materials for hours and hours. After a while when I ran across a super reference about some event I would get downright excited. I would encourage you to write me if you have any questions about the process I went through. I regret I really had no outside friends or interested parties to review the book as I was developing it, and by the time I completed it, the publisher's editors did little that changed the content. They certainly helped get the book into the cleanest state we could. I hope you will purchase the book and begin to learn about some of the most interesting people and events we in America have ever seen.
