Development of a website took a turn for the better when my nephew agreed to create one <jackruss.com> and manage it for me. He’s had several years experience with websites, and the price is right. I hadn’t known he was in the business.
The latest email from Pete, my “agent,” reported only a few minor tweeks to the cover remain before our final material can be sent to Lightning Source for the actual publishing step. Will set up the account with them this coming week. Once Lightning Source arrangements and actual production are accomplished, I guess I can claim being published. From there it’s to Amazon.com’s site for listing. Other vendors will follow. Then an e-book version as a second wave is next. It’s possible to have the paperback version available to friends and family before first of the year, perhaps even earlier. I don’t anticipate wearing my bashful hat once that goal has been reached.
