The Villains Holding Up Jesse James Soul Liberty

Home Β» The Villains Holding Up Jesse James Soul Liberty

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Jesse James Soul Liberty was scheduled to be published on September 5, 2012. Publication now has been delayed. What’s holding up transforming the book’s manuscript into a printed book? It’s the little black box you see here.

The box is an external hard drive. Inside the box resides the manuscript & research files for Jesse James Soul Liberty. Also inside the box are the manuscript & research files for succeeding volumes of the book, plus many of the files of the James Preservation Trust. So why is this box now a villain holding up the publication of the book?

In mid August, author Eric James had just completed an internet broadcast on HuffPostLIVE. While the lighting was being dismantled, a metal object fell upon the hard drive, lying on the floor next to the author’s computer. When Eric sat down to his computer to upload the final revisions and corrections to the printer for the book and its jacket, the hard drive was found to have been damaged & inoperative. Nothing could be done with the files locked inside.

A search was immediately launched to retrieve the files. For several days, data retrieval services were contacted. The bad news is, none of the files might be able to be retrieved. The good news is, all of the files might be retrievable. The further bad news is,the worst cost estimate to do so is $1400. Data retrieval requires a sterile, antiseptic laboratory environment, exceuted by highly trained technicians.

The printing company was contacted next, to retrieve the proof files for the book and its jacket. — Enter Villain #2.

The printer’s electronic files should have taken only a day or two to be delivered, so final corrections could proceed. Following ownership verification, a cd of the files was mailed. However, the private delivery company delivered the cd to a wrong address. A week lapsed, in which the cd was not found or retrieved and another was issued. Finally, the cd arrived at Cashel Cadence House. The corrections were filed, and everything now is back on track.

Pre-orders for Jesse James Soul Liberty will continue. It will be early October before the book is available from vendors & stores. Pre-orders will be the first books shipped, prior to availability in the stores or with vendors.

Meanwhile, the search continues for a more affordable, but reliable, data retrieval laboratory to recapture the manuscripts for Soul Liberty’s succeeding volumes and everything else the offending villainous hard drive possesses.

Greg James posted the following to his immediate family a few hours ago:
"I’m currently dealing with a heavy heart and confusion. My wife Judy suddenly passed away today and I’m asking for prayers and good thoughts. Thank you!"
Judy is the second wife of John Gregory "Greg" James. Greg’s first wife, Beverly Ann Brown, is the mother of Greg’s James descendants. Regardless, we send Greg our sympathies and condolences.

FRANK YOUNGER'S MEMORIAL SERVICE . . . November 18, 1940 – August 28, 2021. Frank Younger sadly passed away suddenly at age 80 as a result of an accident in his home. Frank was predeceased by his parents, Paul and Margaret (and stepmother Irene). He is survived by his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Pauline (Mike), Matt (Zoe), and Tom (Tamara), and grandson, Paul. Frank loved his family and always enjoyed sharing his encouragement, wisdom, and inimitable sense of humor with them. His contributions to the lives of many include his commitment to his career as an Astronomer at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory (Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics), his ongoing participation in local classical orchestras (including the odd instrument repair), and mentoring of many friends in any way he could. Frank’s recent endeavors included attending and helping run the James Younger Gang club as well as writing and reading his poetry. Frank has often enjoyed and been seen as having contrasting traits including riding his Harley motorcycle to a string quartet practice or cleaning his antique gun collection prior to reading his latest poetry writings to gangster club members. His unique character and compassion for all of his friends and family will be missed. You are invited to Frank Younger’s online Memorial Service.

I was devastated when I received the email. I spoke to Frank and Sharon a month or so ago. We had a nice talk. I will miss him dearly.

I was fortunate enough to have met and talked with Frank. He impressed me as a nice and knowledgeable man.
