The New Book

Well, it's "finally" done!  Or so I hope.

Pyro-Vortex is now available as a paperback.  Here's the link:

Literally, it has taken about 15 years for the book to finally 'materialize'.  Yes, I had the E-book available a while back, but it's nothing like being able to hold a "real" book in your hands.  I guess I'm olde fashioned, in that I like the feel and experience of holding and reading a book that is in my hands. 

There's a glitch in the CreateSpace formatting, where the template we use to build a book doesn't convert cleanly to their PDF format.  I tried to communicate that to them, but...  Once I was able to determine what the glitch was, I was able to adapt accordingly to make things work. 


But the end justifies the means. 

And it's so cool to be able to tell people that I just ordered 25 of my books!

Now to market the book. 

I took a class this past week on Public Speaking, offered by Joe Sabah of Denver.  He's been holding these classes for over 30 years so I hope he knows what he's talking about.  So with this new information I will be able to start doing some of that.  Most places do not pay for a speaker, but we get "paid" by selling our book(s).  And of course, the more speaking you do, the better you get, and the more you are in demand.  That is, of course, if you've got a subject that interests your audience.  Time will tell. 

I'm also going to set up a Facebook account.  Pray for me.

Y'all take care and keep the rubber side down.
