Sehall



   Sehall posted on Main Page The Lobby  I just signed up with NetGalley as a reviewer (I review books in my digital publication, Digging History Magazine ). I'm so excited to get "sneak peeks" of books soon-to-be-published. I'm reading one now, a delightful book -- part history and part personal memoir -- about family road trips (Don't Make Me Pull Over! ). Oh, the memories (and the laughs )! I'll be reviewing the book in the June issue of the magazine which has a "Road Trip!" theme.

Subscription sale on now with a chance to win a grand prize at the end of the summer: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/buy-a-subscription/ or by single issues here: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/monthly-issues/.

   Phooey  No offense intended poster, just wondering how long have you had posting privilege. Not familiar with your name.

   Sehall  I don't remember when I joined The Connection -- maybe January of February of this year. Long time Lucianne member though (although I don't comment much ). I put up similar posts earlier but haven't in a while, and I have put up blurbs about my magazine as well. The magazine's focus is history and genealogy and each month has a different mix of articles, with virtually no advertising -- just stories (accompanied by footnotes and sources ). Lots of work (and love ) put into every issue!

   LambChop  Many thanks for posting this. Anything that combines history and genealogy captures my interest. Knowing how critical history is to understanding your own family history is key. I'll be looking into your magazine.

   Sehall  Thank you LambChop for your interest. I do have a summer-long contest for new subscribers: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/specia
l-offers/


I'm very proud of the magazine. After spending four years as the editor of my local genealogical society's newsletter, I'm excited to expand my creativity. After turning the newsletter into an award-winning publication (1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Texas and 2nd in National Genealogical Society this year ), I'm pumped to do my own thing.

Although I don't have a lot of subscribers yet, I will keep plugging away. I have a vendor table at a genealogy conference this weekend so hope to sign up a few there. If you're seriously interested in subscribing, contact me on the web site and pick an issue you'd like to try out (see The Magazine Store - Single Issues ).

   StormCnter  Sehall, just hit the "delete" button under your duplicate post. It will disappear. Duplicates happen to all of us sometimes.

   Sehall  To LambChop and StormCnter and all history and genealogy enthusiasts. I helped coordinate the first annual Caprock Genealogy Conference this past weekend in Plainview, TX. It was a great success!

I had a vendor table with a special subscription offer for conference attendees which I'm extending to everyone for one-year subscriptions (offer runs 5/14-5/21 ). Purchase a one-year subscription and apply the discount code "2OFF" at Checkout. See the subscription link above in the comment that started this thread. Thanks for taking a look!

   Sehall  Forgot to add this: All conference attendees received the first FOUR issues of the magazine for free. Sign up this week to be a one-year subscriber and you will receive those issues as well.

   Sehall posted on Suggested Reading  For those who enjoy politically-oriented books, has anyone read "Let Trump be Trump"? It was definitely interesting to read the "behind-the-scenes" story of the campaign and victory.

   StormCnter  I have not, Sehall. Did you read it and enjoy it? My all-time favorite political book is "What it Takes" by Richard Ben Cramer about the 1988 primary campaigns. Here is a 2014 NPR review of Cramer's book.

   Gram77  Looks like a book I need to check out. I'm down to #89 at the library for Fire and Fury and #2 for It's Even Worse Then You Think. I'll see if the library has Let Trump Be Trump.

   Sehall  I did read it (Let Trump Be Trump ) and I really enjoyed it ... was an easy read (less than 300 pages ). Interesting take on what was really happening behind the scenes vs. what the media was telling us.

   Sehall posted on Suggested Reading  Just for (Lucianne ) Friends: If you'd like to sample an entire issue of my new digital publication, Digging History Magazine, go to this link and download the inaugural January issue: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/just-for-friends/

Download to your computer or tablet and enjoy! Subscriptions are now available: 3-month, 6-month and one-year. https://www.digginghistorymag.com/buy-a-subscription/

I hope you enjoy it. February is on sale, as is a Special Edition on Early American Faith. March will feature a new contributor, a passionate historian of Appalachian history. The title of her column will be "Appalachian Histories & Mysteries."

All I ask in return for receiving the free issue is feedback (see the contact page on the site ), and if you like it please help me spread the word. We're a little slow getting off the ground so word-of-mouth is always welcome. Thanks for checking it out!

   Sehall  Anyone who downloaded a copy of the magazine, I'd really appreciate your feedback, positive and negative. Actually, especially the negative. It's still a work-in-progress and there is always room for improvement. Be brutal if you must : ) There is a contact page on the web site you can use for critique.

In fact, if anyone would like to help me sharpen the focus and improve the content and design (and appeal ), I'm happy to provide a free copy each month, but, again the critique is the most important thing I'm in need of.

   Sehall posted on Suggested Reading  Digging History Magazine now has subscriptions (finally! ) and also a convenient place to download issue samples: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/the-magazine/

Following the launch of this new (ad )venture my first benchmark is to find 50 subscribers -- "Fifty Out of Seven-Point-Six-Billion" https://www.digginghistorymag.com/2018/01/27/fifty-out-of-se
ven-point-six-billion/
to help me get off the ground as I build a customer base. As a friend reminded me yesterday -- "Rome wasn't built in a day" -- it will take time and perseverance. The March issue is being assembled and written now. It will feature a new contributor who will write a column entitled "Appalachian Histories & Mysteries". Can't wait to introduce her!

   Sehall posted on Suggested Reading  Thanks StormCnter and Gram77. My new digital magazine has two issues posted, January and February, plus a special edition on Early American Faith. If you go to the magazine page, click on a magazine image to see the contents and to purchase or download a sample. For now it's single issue purchases but I will be adding subscriptions to make it easier to get monthly issues. Each monthly issue will be at least 40-50 pages of just article with an occasional little ad.

I would be so appreciative to have your support and help in spreading the word. It's a way for me to earn a steady stream of income. Here's the magazine page where you can see what's available:

https://www.digginghistorymag.com/the-magazine/

I have my web site designer working on a streamlined format and that should be coming soon. For now, take a look around and see what the site (and me ) are all about. Feel free to send me a note on the contact page. Thanks again.

   StormCnter  I visited your website and poked around. I share your interest in genealogy, too. I have more than 10,000 names in my database, accumulated over more than 20 years. I'll pass the word to others to check into your magazine.

   Sehall  Thanks StormCnter -- I will have subscriptions soon. I have written extensive articles on some of my genealogy research adventures -- January has a couple of stories. I don't write them "dry" like they do in those genealogy publications. I make it interesting! If you'll go back to the contact page and fill it out and put "free issue connection" in the message box I'll send you a free copy of the January issue.

   Sehall  StormCnter -- your genealogy project sounds impressive! I also create custom pedigree charts for clients. In my research for clients I'm on the lookout for things like signatures, cattle brands, news clippings, significant records, etc. to include on their chart to make it more of a conversation piece and not just a bunch of dates.

   Sehall posted on Suggested Reading  I'm not sure about the protocol/rules for posting here on this wall. I'm a longtime follower of Lucianne.com -- it's the first sites I check out every morning and has been my habit for many years. Don't comment a whole lot but I appreciate the group of like-minded American-loving patriots. I have to say Lucianne.com (and Rush ) kept me sane while I resided in Los Angeles for about 20 years! : ) I now live in Texas, state of my birth.

On a personal note, I am in the process of launching a monthly digital magazine focused on unique events and characters in history you won't necessarily find in history books. The issues aren't expensive and there are no ads to speak of -- just history. I'm just looking for a friendly venue to post maybe a short monthly blurb with a link. No pressure -- just want to let folks know about the magazine. I'm happy to provide additional information should a moderator want to check it out. I'm attaching an image of the February issue cover.
