We would like to compile a list of all CWT members who are published book authors. We want to list all your Civil War-related book titles, with links embedded to each book, if possible, as well as to your personal website or blog, if you have one.

In order to make that list, which would be a permanent but continually updated reference for users of CWT, we need to hear from you authors. Please post on this thread with the information described above.

We are hoping that this will give a publicity boost to our resident authors, as well as provide a ready reference for members and guests as a guide to some great books on our shared passion, the American Civil War.

Note: We want to list only books already published, and only Civil War-related titles; these include both straight history and historical fiction. We will update this reference constantly, which means we will depend on you authors yourselves for updates. Details on how to do that will be provided once we get this thing established.

Thank you for your assistance!

If you're a published author CWT member and you don't see your name tagged, don't be offended, it's just because I had a brain freeze or I don't know about you yet! Please chime in on the thread.

I have one that is about two weeks from going to the printer--it's being indexed. Shall I include that on the list?
What I'd like now is a list of books already published. In any order you wish -- chronological, by subject matter, whatever.
Then, when your new book is actually in print -- hence, available to people -- I'll update the list.

You´ll find more names to tag in the Our Authors thread.
Indeed! I'm going through that thread right now. It is a wonderful thread! It started in 2013, and has gotten very long. I'm not trying to displace that thread -- I hope it keeps going for more years to come! My goal is rather to construct an index or directory that would make it easy to find all these people and their books on one handy-dandy reference page.

Eric, I've gotten all your titles up through The Devil's to Pay from the "Our Authors" thread. What else needs to be added?
UPDATE: Oops!! Just saw your post - Never mind!
