Love the trailers.  I just started Vol. 1 of The Treasure of La Malinche and am really enjoying it.  It sucked me in from the very beginning.  :)

I can't believe I missed this thread :'(  I have a friend that read Treasure first, both volumes, loved it, When I was reading Gone I knew she would love it, but went with the other first, but she is going to get to it pretty quick.  I can hardly wait for more from you - quit playing with those great grand kids and get to work.

Jeff,

I like your video for your book.  I'd asked a family member to make one for me but that hasn't happened.  I was thinking live actors, action, voiceovers.  But you got me thinking that maybe I'll do it myself.  You know what they say...

Best!

Jeff,

One further thing, I was wondering if you could tell me more about how you did that?  I have access to some good graphics about my book (White Seed), and I could do the voice overs.  I also have some good musical scores I could use.  But I've never done any videos.  Any advice?  What program did you use?  Any suggestions for me?  Contact me offline if you can help.
thanks,
Paul Clayton

These two books are not really historical fiction so I had removed them from the original post. However, rather than starting a new thread to an already glutted topic I'm adding them back. Yes, I know, I tend to wake up in a different world every day. ;D

I am currently reading The Treasure of La Malinche Volume 2, and my husband is currently reading Gone for a Soldier. These are EXCELLENT books and I HIGHLY recommend them.

I used Windows Movie Maker and fumbled my way through it.

Thank you, Dona. If you'd like to read proof-read and/or edit the pre-release of The Land of the Free in MS Word format, please contact me by PM or email. It's the sequel to Gone For a Soldier, is currently about 300 pages and is pretty well fleshed out but infested with typos.

The first draft of Home of the Brave, which is the next in the series, is almost finished. It should be ready for beta readers in about two weeks. These two books tie Gone For a Soldier to The Treasure of La Malinche.

There are three more books planned to complete the series. The prequel to The Treasure of La Malinche, called Lonely is the Soldier, is about half written. I'll finish it before jumping back to the Civil War with Johnny Comes Marching Home. The last book, tentatively titled, Don't sit Under the Apple Tree is probably at least a year away.

It is good to see posts about your work again.
I let some negative people get me down for a while and I stopped posting but I didn't stop writing. I sincerely appreciate your support and that of many others that I've been fortunate to meet here on KindleBoards.

I anxiously await the new books.
And would be happy to help in any way possible.
I'd certainly welcome your help, Geoff. Please send me the email address that you have associated with your Windows ID (Passport) and I'll add you to the editing team. If you'd rather have a Kindle version instead of the Word documents, just send me a PM and I'll compile one for you.

I had no idea you were working on so much. Very ambitious. I'll look forward to them all.
