So, Ned, is this a novel? I mean, naturally you've had to fill in gaps of Joe's life, but is it more historical or...?

Thanks, Aaron. I put 25 years of research into it. Yes, I enhanced the narrative by "filling in the gaps". Joe may not have done
all the things I have him do, but then they are things he could've done within the timeline of his travels.

Dead Wake by Eric Larson is a great read! One of the best novels involving the whole Lusitania story. :D

Get all your Christmas shopping done in one place, and for cheap. Here's the deal. From now, through December 19, if
you purchase a copy of "One Domingo Morning, The Story Of Alamo Joe", you will also receive a copy of the CD "Outside
The Alamo" at no extra cost. (Postage and handling may vary, according to your home location.) Both the book and CD
will be personalized according to your specifications.

Except for a small number of books (around 12) I have for sell on Ebay, my book, The Illustrated
Siege and Battle of the Alamo, is sold out. Thank all of you very much for your support. At this
point, I have no plans to reprint it.

There are still copies of GT Johnson's book in the Alamo giftshop for those who may not have it.
(Saw them there this past Saturday.)

Thanks, Ned. That is the last of them at the Alamo. I had to turn down a new order from them yesterday for 40 copies. Kinda sad it is over, but it was a great ride while it lasted.

Thank you my good friend, Hans. Yes it costs 5,000.00 to print it and the profit is good but the up front cost is just too much. However, I am able to print myself a much larger version with omitted pages and the images are just as good. I may do a limited version of that.

Right, why not print that alternative version. - $5000? You can get any amount of copies printed cheap at lulu.com (and other such companies). You could start with 50 or 100 copies, if you like. You get to decide the size of the book, the name of the publishing company (you), the paper quality, the sales price and what have you. You can even just upload the manuscript and then lulu.com will print a copy every time a customer orders a copy. That way you don´t have to invest any money at all. You just tell people they can buy a copy at lulu.com. Lulu.com will then send you your profit for each copy they sell for you. I know two different authors who have used that method and I´ve bought their books at lulu.com. Well made books too.
Have a look at it here:

Thanks, Hans. My main customer was the Alamo gift shop which would buy 30 to 40 copies every couple of months. I will take a look at lulu.

Please do! You can either let lulu print 30-40 copies for you every couple of months, or let the Alamo gift shop buy them at lulu so that you don´t have to act as middleman. You´ll be deciding the sales price and lulu will send you the profits after deducting printing costs every time people order one or more copies. Go to lulu and click on "Create" so that you can see how it works.

Sold a few more books and CDs over the Christmas Holidays. Thanks to all who bought them.

And for those of you who got my CD single for Christmas, it was a limited pressing of only 50 CDs! Just so you know the rarity of it. Hah!

Actually, I did. It was a good read. Ya took a good many historical liberties with the story, but, heck, given the scant historical evidence we have, ya have to take some liberties. Very good, overall. But the cover art...the Wayneamo... :roll: ;) :D

Thanks, Aaron. Well,the historical evidence we have on Joe would probably make a nice 30 page pamphlet. Hence the
need to enhance the telling of the tale by hammering out all the chronological possibilities of Joe's movements. Given
the time frame, Joe could've been in all the places I put him. Not that he was, but could have been.

As for the book's cover art, I specifically asked Joe Musso to make it look like an old-timey movie poster. I believe he
succeeded.
