Publishing again

Yesterday I went to a local UPS copy store-that will make my son Jeff happy as he works for UPS. They will be helping me print, bind and publish my collection of articles that I have been writing for the past year for a local newspaper into a book entitled Looking Back...at Life in the "Good Old Days." I've filled an 80+ half page book with 50 articles plus lots of old family photos. Now I'm trying to write a description of the writer-ME. It's really quite the production because I am going to try to sell this book and not just give it away for cost as I've done with the many other family history books I've written.

Above is a photo that will be on the cover. I'll let you know when it will be available, cause I know you'll want to buy one or two of my books. LOL! It's like giving birth to a new child. You have to figure out its name, make all the arrangements for its birth and struggle with a few doubts or two. Can I do this? Am I really going to be a published writer/mother? Guess I can do it, since I birthed four sons and raised them to adulthood before releasing them to the world. Life is certainly interesting and educational. Capturing your journey called LIFE is so important. I hope you are keeping a journal and making plans to organize them into your own personal biography for your family.

Love the photo you've chosen for the cover of your book, Lin. Best wishes as you go through all the steps of getting the book into print. It must be a big task, but one well worth it.

What an interesting photo for your book cover. Sounds like a very big job but obviously a labor of love. I admire that.

Good for you! I love the picture you will be using. I know the project will go well--you seem like the kind of person to be in all the details.
