The book’s progress is coming along. At this writing, we are looking at the end of March for publication. Cross your fingers. There are details still dangling such as a book cover, interior design, inserting pictures and printing hard copies. I’m not sure about Kindle or Amazon ebooks, but my publisher seems to think those options are do-able.
Marketing seems to be the real work. Any of you that have published in the past are most likely aware of the immensity of the task. I would love to hear from readers of any venue, mom and pop bookstores, reading groups, service groups, or any organization that would enjoy a book talk. I am open to suggestions and compiling a list of likely outlets.
I live near Boise and can drive to most locations in the Pacific Northwest. For other locations some planning would be necessary, and books shipped ahead.
I believe in River of January. The story did not fall into my lap by accident and I have nothing but respectful awe for my protagonists, Helen and Chum. Their story deserves to be told. It must be told. They did things in their lives I’m not sure can be repeated today. In the earliest days of show business and aviation one needed heart and guts, not a masters degree. Added to the tale is the compelling story of America during 20th century, a hundred years of growth, change and world leadership.
I thank you for sticking to the blog all these months, and the kind support you have extended.
This writer is open to (nice) suggestions.
