LONG JOURNEYS – NEARING THE FINISH LINE
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.
