Today, I received proof copy 3 of volume 1 of my Pettus book from the printer. After checking it over carefully, I am now satisfied that it meets all my expectations, including fidelity of the color pictures. I have ordered 300 copies and expect to receive them about mid-June. I would like to hold a book-signing event in Richmond for anyone who would like to attend and pick up your book. For those who attend, I will reimburse your pre-paid packaging and shipping fees. I will post a firm shipping date and the date and place of the book signing event when I have that information. Thanks, all, for your patience.
