It is one thing to write a series of sentences, paragraphs, and chapters, but quite another to fashion them all into a book. Add into the mix the formatting, frontispiece, photo selections, font style, and the overall dimensions of the project, along with a few months’ hiatus for late fall and holiday enjoyment, and we wind up in January 2023. Clearly, I do not have the dogged constitution of a writer who knocks out a few thousand words every morning prior to lunch.
With the New Year underway, I asked the man who formatted my first published work, Walking Up The Ramp, if he might be interested in another project. His response was almost instantaneous and made for smiles at my desk. “Unequivocally yes”. While I podcast and record my own History Minutes for YouTube, aligning sentences so that at the end of each page it looks like an adult was in change is simply not my forte. I am most heartened that someone with skills in this type of programming will oversee this aspect of my project.
Final editing is now underway with small details being completed regarding how the book will look and ‘feel’. My book will be published in time to usher in the new green leaves and colorful blooms of spring. The book will be available on Amazon.
