“Lost and Found” is in Print!!!

I can’t believe it. After almost five years from conception, my memoir is finally in print. My husband and most friends were pretty skeptical when I first said I was writing a book. It was difficult at first to even articulate exactly what the story line was going to be, but I thought I knew the main events that would take place.

I was ready to give up so many times along the way such as after the first time I read a chapter at the first writing seminar. The horrified looks on people’s faces did not match their words but the faces said it all. It sounded like a legal document. It took some time to find my voice and sometimes I catch myself still lapsing.

After spending two weeks away from home writing in Savannah, Georgia one winter, I almost gave it all up again due to a computer glitch. When I restarted my computer, it was all gone. Not that anything I had written was that good, but how do you start all over again? But I did.

I’m even glad that I decided to go the self-publication route because after so many years of struggle with the process, I found that I just did not have the patience to fight my way through the publishing industry. So I learned about Print On Demand publishing houses. I chose Ingram-Spark because they can publish in color and black and white. And they distribute all over, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and independent book stores. So, the hardcover version of “Lost and Found” has color photos ($24.95) (and is available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and can be ordered at regular book stores), and the softcover version ($12.95, black and white photos only) is only at Amazon.com.

I can’t express my excitement at being done and I hope you’ll have a chance to share that excitement with me. Special request – would you kindly post a review on Amazon? I’d be very appreciative.
