Turned in the book this morning to Jillian, copy editor extraordinaire. She is one of the major forces behind the copy editing/proofing of my Mom’s book, “One Life” (which continues to get rave reviews, to all our delight). She’s already contacted me about some minor details she’s noticed, so I’m confident I’m in very good, very meticulous hands.
While she is busy working on the final draft I thought maybe I’d put out some feelers for people/places that might be interested in our book once it DOES come out. Very interested, mildly interested, nothing better to do interested, I’m really not picky.
I plan to contact my two local newspapers, but I’m sure there’s more I could do. Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Magazines, blogs, podcasts, or any other form of media. All may apply.
When we first wrote it, we envisioned traveling to churches/civic groups/living rooms/anyone that would have us to talk about the book and our journey making No Lost Cause. Then we would screen the film and everyone would go home happy and enlightened by our journey.
That was the dream, anyway. But we know how those turn out sometimes! 🙂
Anyway, not much was done today other than my job outside the home. Today was another Six Toilet Day (https://ashleyraymerbrown.com/2015/01/28/35-days-to-35-six-toilet-day/), so I’ve gotten home late and feel like an easy chair and a book (written by somebody else) is calling my name.
Right at 35 days before my 35th birthday, Rachael and I found out that a book we wrote about our experience making our first film “No Lost Cause,” was being returned to us by the publisher after a year of waiting for it to be printed. Instead of wallowing in our collective misery, I committed to blogging every day while I searched for ways to overcome this perceived rejection and obstacle to our goal. I currently also have about three other projects brewing at the same time, and write about the progress of each of them. This is part of that series.
