One thing I’ve learned from publishing my second book, “When No One Else Would Fly” is how much finishing something is not the end of it.
When I finished writing my first book, “Just A Couple of Chickens,” I thought I had climbed the top of a literary mountain – I’d finished a book! And then I realized that I was just getting started regarding getting it published.
Another long climb later, when I finally accomplished all of the things required to self publish, I thought I had reached the summit when I clicked “Publish” on Amazon.com’s Createspace. (These days, it’s “Approve Your Book Proof”.. not “Publish”… but clicking that button publishes the book – just in case you are standing by with glasses raised ready to set off fireworks when you click “Publish”…)
And then I realized that I was just getting started regarding marketing the book.
So this month, as I celebrate the publication of “When No One Else Would Fly” about my grandfather, aviation pioneer Colonel C. J. Tippett, I am trying to enjoy the moment and deflect queries regarding when I’ll be releasing the ebook version.
The answer is …… soon! And in the meantime, “When No One Else Would Fly” is now available on Amazon.com!
