This is it, Freepers! A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus' Great Discovery to the War on Terror goes on sale today!
Freepers, if you love history, and, more important, if you think that there has been a void in the telling of America's REAL history, this book is for you.
Thanks to you several Freepers who have read and commented on parts of this book. It is already the winner of February's Lysander Spooner Award for literature that advances the cause of liberty, and we are in talks with Fox and other outlets for a media blitz to take place during the official "roll out" in the second week of January. Meanwhile, if you are returning Christmas gifts and didn't get that "stocking stuffer," by all means, this is it!
I'll be happy to autograph copies if any Freeper wants to send me their copy, tell me to whom they want it inscribed or what they want it to say, and provide a postage-paid return envelope!
Go Larry! Go Larry! Go Larry!
Good luck, sir. Keep up the good work!

Starting a club might be a little risky. :)
Wonderful news; will put it on my gift list.
I can't say if the bookstores actually have it IN today---hoping they do---but Amazon gives a 10% discount (it's a good deal) and they deliver pretty quickly. If you get a copy, I'll autograph it if you want to send it to me with return postage.

800 pages! Wowser! Seriously, congrats for the Spooner Award, and best wishes for success.
Heheheh. We had to cut something like 20,000 words just a month before it went to print. There is something magical about the $29.00 price tag, according to the sales specialists.

Now if I can get off of my duff and finish mine...[g]
I got to talk to Wm. F. Buckley once, and I asked him how he wrote so much (back then, several articles a week for NR, plus his novels), and he said, I get up, brush my teeth, and sit down and write. There is no magical thing about it.
I've always heard this book to be very highly recommended by American history buffs. What flaws does he have in his book?
cool! i am seriously thinking of having xsteen take it in to show her 10th grade history teacher, and her english teacher, both of whom are conservatives. she attends a private Catholic allgirls school in DC. what i really need to do is get it in the hands of her 9th grade World History teacher who was a raving lib.
I'm going to take my writings (blatherings, bleatings, belchings, or whatever you might refer to them today as) and collate them, along with some additional expository material relating to conservatism in general and black conservatism in particular.
The tenative title is "Ramblings of a Black Conservative," although that may end up just being some sort of subtitle once it's all said and done.
I think he misses the real significance of the 1950s; and, of course, stops sooner than we do.
