Folks,

I notice that we have many excellent writers here on the board, some professional, some not. We would like to ramp up our book reviews, and thought maybe some of you would like the chance.

While we can't pay for reviews (hey, we're a free site!), you will get to keep the book you review, plus a byline and short bio on the review. If you have reviewed for CWi or other media outlets before, and are interested in any of the below books, you can reply to this thread or send an e-mail to CWi. If you're a first-time author, send a sample review of any book of your choice, just so we can gauge your ability.

The drawback to this is we need very quick turn-around time (2-3 weeks). To see previously published reviews, check here. The following titles are available now:

"The Civil War as a Theological Crisis" by Mark Noll. (TAKEN)

"The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864" edited by Gary Gallagher

"Words For The Hour: A New Anthology of American Civil War Poetry" edited by Faith Barrett

"The Battle of Hampton Roads" edited by Harold Holzer (TAKEN)

"Struggle for a Vast Future" edited by Aaron Sheehan-Dean

"The Civil War: A Concise Account by a Noted Sothern Historian" by Grady McWhiney

   We are also always interested in Civil War related articles, editorials, etc. Query to CWi.

I'd be interested in Gallagher, Holzer or McWhinney.

David,

You've written top-notch reviews for us in the past...glad you responded. If Hampton Roads is OK with you, I'll send it tomorrow. E-mail your postal address to us at info@civilwarinteractive.com . I probably still have it somewhere from your trivia win, but just in case (btw, you should have received your trivia prize recently. If not, let me know)

Javal, although I cannot take on any more assignments at this time, I will continue to repost copies of my FLS reviews on the Message Board. I don't think they can be reprinted on your site "officially", but I am more than happy to continue sharing them with your members. I am looking forward to reading these upcoming reviews.

MA,

Certainly understand the "rights" issue, and also the over-worked issue! Glad to hear you'll be posting unofficially at least. Love your reviews. Thanks.

Thanks Javal.  I got on a writing roll this weekend.  A history of war crimes for the Civil War Roundtable newsletter on Friday, read the book on Saturday and wrote the review on Sunday.  Believe it or not it was fun.  Monday went to the pool and harrassed the kids.
