A Serious, Young Reader
Many people have asked me over the years how I got started as a writer and how I managed to write books. It was a lot of work. But there were also some psychological challenges to overcome. Without the examples of other writers around me, I had to rely on the encouragement of some friends and push myself. It also involved some tricks to prove to myself I could do it and some trials at various points before I wrote my first book and before I wrote more books.
My new book has been printed and my publisher mailed me a copy. I received it today. It’s very exciting. Now I need to have a book party to celebrate the completion of this writing project. And I need do some marketing to promote the book—I’ve done some, but need to do more.
My new book is almost finished. All of the writing and editing is done. The index has been completed. The production department has just finished the cover, including a great quote by Colin Charles endorsing the book. In a few days the book will go to the presses for printing. In just a few weeks, less than a month, they will start shipping the book. After two years, it’s finally almost done.
