Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I hope that everyone has a fantastic Christmas season and a wonderful new year. As we approach 2015, I am busy at work on the sequel to the CSS Appomattox.

After just a few short days since publication, things are looking pretty good. The book went live on Kindle on October 30. In the fifty-four days since it has been up, I have over 300 purchases which I am actually very happy with. I now have six reviews on the book of which five are very positive. Apparently reviewer number six did not enjoy the book. But still, my other book on Kindle has been up since March of this year and only have 4 reviews and less than a quarter of the downloads. Fiction is far more popular than wargaming scenarios.

So to you who have given the CSS Appomattox a chance, THANK YOU! Thank you very much. I hope to hear from more of you.

The new year should hold some changes. I hope to have a few free items for the readers here as a thank you gift. I will probably put up a few short stories and the like here as I work on them. Also, if anyone is interested, an experiment in collaborative storytelling.


  1. Have a very Merry Christmas in the company of your beloved ones, Chris!
    And lots of success with your editorial project for next year

    1. Thank you sir. And a Merry Christmas to you as well.

  2. Happy New Year Chris! And a lot of moddeling fun!


    1. Thank you. So far 2015 has plenty of promise. The best to you as well.
