Getting A Book Published

When I retired my kids asked me to record some of the wild adventures that I have taken part in. Little did I know that this would lead me to blogging, get me very involved in genealogy and best, get me a book published!

Over the past nine months I have been involved in one of the most rewarding projects that I have ever tackled – having a book published! It became a full time job. Where do you find the time to be active in your church? Where do you find the time to take part in your Grandchildren’s sports? Where do you find time to hunt and fish? Where do you find time to play Senior Softball? Where do you find the time to do all the chores around the ranch?

When I was working, I had assistants that took care of my calendar management. I handled my time management and it never crossed my mind that these things would be so important after I retired. Somehow it all worked out and today, on my blog, Randy, my Son, and I put up all of the “about” information, the necessary links to [Rosedog Books], the publisher and set me up on Twitter and Facebook. On the left side of the page, click on the book, “The End Of The Line”, to find out a little about the book, the author and how to acquire it.

It has been a fun thing! Managing and balancing everything was a challenge. But now, seeing my name on the cover, re-reading some of the stories and holding the book in my hands, it was all worth it!

I’ve got more in the works; an unnamed book about my family’s history from way back to the present; another unnamed one about the storms, tornadoes and miscellaneous violent weather that I have encountered over the years, and one that is almost ready for publishing, “Why It Is Called Hunting”.

How enjoyable this has been and I don’t have a job to get into the way!
