Korean War memoir update

Yes, I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I am too busy! The big Korean War memoir project I’ve been working on for over two years is in the final stages before publishing, and I need to get it to the printer as soon as possible for a November release to celebrate both my veteran friend and Veteran’s Day. He is excited, and so are all his friends.

The manuscript has been formatted and I’m proofreading. Unfortunately, I think the font size needs to be a bit bigger. Doc and I don’t have such good eyesight, and probably plenty of older veterans don’t either. Lesson learned, after the first chapter is formatted, get it back from the designer and print it out so you can make font decisions right away instead of after a lot of work has been done. Hopefully because the chapters are short, re-sizing a bit won’t make too much difference.

This week I will open an account with Ingram Spark and transfer over my Lightning Source book, Cherry Blossoms in Twilight. I will be uploading Battlefield Doc to both Spark and CreateSpace when it’s ready. Then I will be better able to answer some new Spark-CreateSpace comment questions on my Resource page.

After 62 years, Doc’s journal notes have been turned into a book—it’s never too late to write your memoir! Well, you do need to still be alive . . . so quit wasting time!
