I started my micro-press, Future Tense Books, back in 1990 and I honestly had no idea what I was doing for the first few years. The dawn of the Internet, along with more printing options, has made it easier to run a small press since then

Lists books, journals and websites that may be useful sources when conducting historical research.
A few years ago my brother was working in Eudora for the city. He learned and shared with me that there was an old cemetary with folks who migrated to Kansas after the Civil War. I found this to be wonderful news simply because I didn’t know and I thought it was very interesting. I’ve driven past Eudora many times and never knew or even thought about the stories of black Americans that may have once inhabited this small town. Now, I want to learn more. This will be my first research and non-fiction writing project. I will have to dig deep and seek out sources to gather information. Each week as I learn more I will share here. I hope you will join me on this journey.
