Like you, Jerry, I’m an old guy, but unlike you I don’t know beans about social media and how to use it as a marketing tool. In fact for a variety of complex reasons I have avoided social media except for medium. So is there a way I could hire you to promote one of my books?

Apprentice Killers: The War of Lincoln and Davis is a unique Civil War book in that it is not so much written about the war as it is a projection from the war. It is a projection of the mood and motivation of six of the war’s most influential drivers of the conflict — the two opposing presidents, Lincoln and Davis and the principal generals, Grant, McClellan, Lee and Joesph E. Johnston.

Unfortunately there has been well over 70 thousand books written about that bloody conflict let alone the fact that thousands more books of other topics are constantly flooding the market daily, so how to stand out in that forest of literature is daunting as you well know.

Jim Ridgway, Jr. military writer — author of the American Civil War classic, “Apprentice Killers: The War of Lincoln and Davis.” Christmas gift, yes!
