There is still plenty of work to do before I reach the finish line of a project I have been working on for several years, but today a major hurdle was passed.

Long Journeys, the stories of 7 generations in my family who have preserved and cared for an old book since 1778, is available today at Amazon Books in paperback and EBook.  The hardback version is in its final stages of proofing and will be ready in two to three weeks. A second volume with the revolutionary war records and court cases of the old book is in the works.

It has indeed been a long journey – of research and writing, of travel to find and verify facts, and of time-consuming hours at the computer.  I thought when the stories were finished the work was done, but publishing has been another long process. I was fortunate to find a local publisher to work with who not only helped me through all the stages of getting my manuscript ready to print but also designed the beautiful cover for the book.  More about that later . . .

Right now I am excited, happy, proud, and very, very tired.

  1. I have put the book on my wish list. My family uses this to find ideas of what to get me for Christmas. Since I like to read I get enough books to last well into the new year. Looking forward to reading your book. I wish you the best of luck with it. I have a very small idea how rough it is to do , since I struggle with my own writing.

    • You made my day – and it’s still early in Idaho!! I have enjoyed reading your posts not only because the stories are interesting, but also because you are not far from Herkimer County, New York where my story begins. Long Journeys includes some history of the area and about my ancestor buying land from the Royal Grant when Sir William Johnson’s family lost it after the Revolutionary War. Thanks so much for commenting.
