RUSH: I want to go to Dillon in Apalachin, New York. I’m glad you waited. I really appreciate it. Welcome to EIB Network. Hello. Oh, you’re 12 years old. I’m sorry. I just noticed he’s 12. Dillon, how are you, sir?
CALLER: Good. How are you?
RUSH: Very well. Thank you. I’m glad you called.
CALLER: Now, my question is, are you going to make another book, and, if so, what will it be about?
RUSH: Have you read the ones that are out there now?
RUSH: Do you like ’em?
CALLER: Yes. I love them.
RUSH: I figured you did since you’re asking if there’s gonna be a fourth. Well, here’s the answer to your question. Yes, there will be a fourth Rush Revere Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans book. We are at this moment feverishly writing it, Dillon. We’re at various stages. It takes a lot to assemble these books, because — as you know since you’ve read them — there’s quite a lot of ingredients.
There’s the history to make sure it’s accurate and correct. There’s the writing it for the age, people in your age-group. There are the illustrations and whatever graphics we put into it. It’ll be out sometime this year. I’m not going to tell you yet what it’s about, but there will be a pre-announcement shortly before the book goes on sale for pre-order, where we will give you a little tease about what this book is about.
I’ll just tell you one little thing…. In this book… I can’t commit to anything yet, Dillon, because of course we haven’t begun the all-important editing process, and proper editing is what you take out, not what you add. (Any great artist and artiste will tell you that.) But you might learn everything you need to know about the Star-Spangled Banner.
