Anybody here working on a future book?

I am up-dating my Meet The Boothies article for Occasional Papers and desire not to leave anyone out.

Thanks in advance.

Randal,

I have completed the first draft (22 chapters, 123,500 w.) of Walking Shadows: the Forgotten Actors, Managers and Stagehands of Ford's Theatre the Night of the Lincoln Assassination, and am having it peer reviewed, securing agent and publisher. Anticipated publication 2013.

Thanks for your continued efforts on the discussion board.

Best,

Tom,
Thanks, I already added your topic to my article, and I'm sure I can speak for others when I say that we're waiting for it to be published!
This is the sort of topic that needs to be documented! It's the "little asides" of the Lincoln assassination that makes this story so darn interesting!
