Getting the Word Out!

The waiting is over!!
WHILE ... is available on,, in softcover and ebook. Go to Select Authors  to read more about the writing of the book and to order it.

Not Quite

I have received a preview copy of WHILE ...! It looks good! Bruni/Hilde and I have agreed to order copies from AuthorHouse for us to sell. It takes 30-40 days for the book to appear on Amazon and BarnesandNoble websites. I will sent out postcards for availability when posted. I have presentations scheduled for July 23 at Westland Library, August 11 at Columbus Cultural Arts Center, September 1 at Dayton Civitan Club, September 8 at a Chicago book club and October at the Gahanna Library. October 14-15 I go to Indianapolis for a conference for further marketing plans. I will up date this schedule as opportunities arise.


WHILE ... is in the final stages. A reviewer has read and I have approved final corrections. Each set of corrections had set back publication by two weeks. The price is established and in 3-4 weeks I will have a book in my hands.
Three May book presentations are scheduled. I will take names and addresses to send postcards for when the book is available.
Meanwhile, business cards are printed and distributed as advance publicity. I have several bookings in summer and fall, but will promote buying online.
Listen for fireworks when book arrives.

In the midst of "proofing" the galley for WHILE, I received an invitation from one cousin to meet our long-lost cousins. They were coming to see her on her 93rd birthday and bring family genealogy records they had kept with her help. I had not met these cousins as their father was the "black sheep" of the family and had little contact with the Craigs. What a fascinating day!
The three ladies were so happy to meet other relations. They knew no other Craigs than their brothers and sisters. Two of the three women had a HUGE three ring binder full of records of family members from which I learned that I had a misspelling of our grandfather's name. Walter Justus Craig died before I was born and I spelled his name as it sounded. Another correction needed for my final "proofing" of WHILE ...
