Re: What have you done this semester?

I'm retired, but I still measure time in semesters. This one has been busy with book signings and a local Houston radio interview for my book, THE HOGGS OF TEXAS: LETTERS AND MEMOIRS OF AN EXTRAORDINARY FAMILY, 1887-1906 (TSHA Press, November 2013). I've also been writng a blog, "Jamestown Mysteries," (www.jamestowntheblog.blogspot.com) to promote my historical novel about early Virginia.  Great fun, and this novel (paperback and ebook) would be a good addition to colonial history courses, etc.!
