E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Marketing Thursday, May 2 2013
Not all free PR is good: What to do about a review that doesn’t truthfully represent the published content? Look long and hard at the item and seek other’s input – is there even a grain of truth to it? Address any facts before moving onto untruths. In print, contact the publisher – any ethical publication will strive for an unbiased product, though reviews are still many times considered opinion. Think positive: This contact may lead to more press that may not have happened without this extra follow up.

E-Magazine Volume 12 Issue 5: Design Thursday, May 2 2013
Hard bound books using bonded leather cover material is a fairly economical upgrade in elegance. A great “coffee table book” cover, it even retains much of the unique smell of leather. This material averages an up-charge of $5.00 per book in small quantities – if the color selected is in stock.

ARC: abbreviation – Advanced Reading Copy
Archival (Quality): The use of this term varies from the logical definition of the individual words to a wide variety of standards – always have a company explain their definition. See Also Archival webpage. Below is a definition from “Preserving Family Keepsakes Do’s and Don’ts”, Ilene Chandler Miller, 1996:
“A term that suggests a material or item is permanent, durable and chemically stable and therefore safe for the preservation of our keepsakes.”

We are happy to announce that we can take orders for the second great research and history resource by Sharolyn and Patrick McCoy:
Big Mountain to Washburn Prairie, 1860 – The Sugar Creek Hills of Southwest Missouri, by Sharolyn S. and Patrick L. McCoy, 2013. 258 pages, 6×9″, hardboound book, ISBN 978-0-9762329-1-9. This book is written in the same format and tenor as the authors previous work, Elkhorn Tavern”. Carefully transcribed for the reader, it is fully indexed and source cited for accuracy and clarity. Working from copies of the 8th Federal Census of 1860 are the families who made their home in this area of southwest Missouri in the census year. Included are the communities of Mountain Township, Shells Mills and Looniesville, Post Office, located in the southeastern corner of McDonald County, Missouri, and to its east Sugar Creek Township, Washburn Prairie & Keetsville Post Office, Barry County, Missouri. Located along the Arkansas border, these townships contained at census time a total enumeration of 337 households comprised of some +/- 2,081 souls. Included in the Appendix is a complete name transcription of the 1865 Benton County, Arkansas Tax List. At war’s end, the Court Clerks Office in Benton County, Arkansas assessed a tax list, as had been done in the years prior to the Civil War. Coroner and Collector Alfred Dean certified the tax list indicating “deceased” of those known to have passed away. In the absence of an off-year census, it is a known period record of the residents subject to taxation, many of whom had or subsequently would live in either Barry or McDonald Counties (Missouri) or had direct or allied family lines across the border.
