For almost five years, I have found a home here on Tumblr for a passion that I have always had — writing about history, particularly the history of our country’s Presidents and Presidency. Dead Presidents began as a place for me to post essays that I never though others would read, and grew into a site that thousands of history-lovers just like me read every day. I’ve been able to share the stories that I love, interact with others who share my interests, and answer thousands of questions in a way that I hope my readers find entertaining, informative, fun, and, even educational.
That is why I have been so excited this week to present my first book, Tributes and Trash Talk: What Our Presidents Said About Each Other. I have been working on several projects and Tributes and Trash Talk is the first to be ready for release, and I’ve been so proud to put it on sale this week. I don’t expect the book to make me rich — if I did, I wouldn’t sell over 350 pages for just $6.99. What it is, I hope, is the beginning of a new phase where I enhance Dead Presidents with several upcoming book projects. In order to do this in a way to make each new book bigger than the last, I ask for your support, and I thank those of you who have already given it.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to pick it up yet, you can get Tributes and Trash Talk, a fun collection of remarkable quotes by our Presidents about the other members of their exclusive fraternity, right now for just $6.99. If you have a Kindle, iPhone, or iPad, you can get the book, which features every President from George Washington to Barack Obama, instantly from Amazon. For those of you with the NOOK device, you download my book right now from Barnes & Noble. And you don’t need a Kindle or NOOK to read Tributes and Trash Talk. You can download the Kindle app from Amazon for FREE and use it to read my book on your smart phone, your tablet, your laptop, or your desktop. I’m old-fashioned and not a big fan of e-books, either, butTributes and Trash Talk looks great on all platforms and it’s a bargain for what it contains!
Thank you all for your continued support of Dead Presidents and I look forward to sharing more of my projects with you in the coming months!
