New Pettus Book
Posted by: William Pettus (ID *****9435) Date: November 13, 2010 at 09:31:09

Eggleston family members descended from Joseph Eggleston of James City County, Virginia, may know that he married Ann Pettus, sister of Thomas Pettus, burgess of Lunenburg County, Virginia. These individuals appear in vol. 1 of my new book on the Pettus family. One of my sources of information were the papers of Dr. Joseph D. Eggleston of Prince Edward Co., Virginia, who died in the 1940s, I think. I have an appendix in Vol. 1 summarizing some important information I obtained from his papers and other sources.

A few days ago, I contacted a prospective publisher to get a quote on printing 200 or 300 copies of volume 1. I can tell you now that the cost for volume 1 will be somewhere around $45-50, exclusive of shipping, handling, and maybe tax. The exact price will depend upon the number of copies I order from the publisher. The number of copies I order will depend upon the number of prospective customers I have, since I donít have a good place to store unsold volumes.

If you are interested in buying a copy of volume 1, please let me know and let me have your mailing address. Your response will govern the size of my order and the amount I will charge for a copy of my book.

The books will be ready for distribution within eight weeks after I send the publisher a signed contract and a printout of my book. First, however, I will allow some time for your responses before proceeding with publication so I will know how many copies to have printed.

Last week, I submitted a draft of my genealogical summary and conclusions chapter in volume 2 of my book to the local family history writing group of which I am a member. I will receive comments from the group tonight. This group has also reviewed many of the biographies I wrote that will appear in volume 1. When I finish editing the final version of that chapter, I will start indexing volume 2.
