A few months ago I wrote that I was about one-quarter finished with the Shinsengumi book I’ve been working on these past several months. I had hoped that “without stumbles, confusion, unexpected (i.e., new) discoveries, misunderstandings . . . “ I might finish by next year. I was being a bit optimistic!
I’ve made some significant discoveries since then. I’ve also made a lot of progress. I’ve written much and learned even more. But as they say, the more you know, the more you realize how much you don’t know.
I think that this next Shinsengumi book will not disappoint anyone interested in the Shinsengumi or Bakumatsu history in general.
Again, thank you all for your continuous support and encouragement to push forward in this lonely occupation.
Think big! Create!
