Okay, Finally Love is FINALLY out.

Last night after much frustration and talking to computers, it is done. There was still a small glitch or two, but it is in. Most of this frustration is probably my age and comprehension. BUT I FINALLY GOT THIS MESSAGE!

Note of set up

This ended up being the final cover, Sherry thought the hands were not old enough and likes the sunset best. Also I put a lot of stock into what Bonnie has had to say as she proofed the book, she preferred a sunset.

final coverfinally love

The price of the book is $8.50. I tried to price it less but the system insisted they wanted some profit also.  Profit on this book in Europe is 1¢. I am expecting a wind fall. LOL

Of course it has never been about profit, it is about fun. 

Life has a way of moving right along. I can remember when I read only material related to work. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would write 90 to a 100 thousand words (that made sense!)

I will probably sell a limited number (25) of books on this blog. I might even do a give-away like our friend Sandie over at :

I have learned a lot in the past few years. If I market my own books the number is never counted on ‘Author total book sales’ so I am rated much lower on the # of books in print. That actually matters little, but it was something I did not know.

Oh yes for Kindle owners, I will let you know when it is avail as an e-book.

So I proofed this dude on the digital side, I hope I was right. LOL

Thanks for dropping by the log.

I like that cover for the book.
Wish our Family was still around
to see your accomplishment writing
books. I am PROUD of you BROTHER.

I have trouble writing reports.
You are the smart one in the Family.

How do I get one - I want to be the first - let me know.

And I would love to do a give-away for you!




Can't wait to read it. We all have books inside of us, but publishing one is quite a feat.

Count me in to order one...

FANTASTIC ACCOMPLISHMENT, Old Man! I look forward to an exciting read.

XERF - Ciudad Acuna, Coahillia, Mexico! Where I heard Don and Earl and the "Southern Gospel Melody Singers" and other interesting folks! 150,000 Watts I think. You could only run 100,000 Watts in the USA...but Mexico allowed more wattage.

WCKY - Cincinnati, One, Ohio! 100,000 watt clear channel spot. Where G.W. Lane (one of my favorite preachers in those days) was heard every week. Don and Earl were also on this station - and on WSM, Nashville, TN. Home of the Grand Ole Opry. WSM can still be heard on 650AM.

I'm soooo looking forward to reading this, Jack!

While I've never "allowed" myself to dream so big, (I suspect) seeing your book come to fruition must be an almost-holy moment. Yes, you've done it before, but just wanted to say I'm so happy for you!

Congrats once more on getting the job done. It has to be a good feeling of accomplishment!

Good news Jack. Like the picture for the book. Just really sounds like it will be a good read. Congratulations.

«Louis» doesn't remember what Ford called that concept car from '62. He remembers the car, but forgets its name and rationale.
Congratulations on the publication of your newest book!
