The Petticoat Rebellion, Vol.1 on the horizon

The beginning of December 2013. This is the first of the last blogs of the year. Perhaps two more will happen. 2014 will be the year the 1718 Project starts marketing itself. That process begins with a marketing plan which will evolve and be implemented.  1718 already has a blog – hopefully you’re reading it (https://1718neworleans2018.wordpress.com) right now. 1718 already has a web site  (http://1718neworleans.com) not just an author page but a fully fledged site. It is already tied in with LinkedIn ( http://www.linkedin.com/company/the-louisiana-history-company) and Twitter (which I don’t use because Twitter is just silly). There is already a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Orleans-Tri-Centennial/170804986263088) for the tricentennial of the city of New Orleans.

I think there’s going to be a change in my outlook and approach to this whole project. It occurred to me that this blog and all the rest of the stuff always seems to center around me. Selfishness is something I’ve been battling against since I was a young man. Maybe this marketing opportunity will let me grow a bit and see beyond to what you want. What you the customer, you the reader, you the celebrant of the 2018 Tricentennial, desire to gain.

Volume one of the Petticoat Rebellion, (the 1720s and 1730s) is in the final pre-publication phases. The plan is to have Volume One on iBooks and Kindle as well as the 1718 Project website as a final free version by Mardi Gras, 2014. We truly hope that you find this volume both interesting and useful as well as entertaining.
