My Publishing Journey (Part III)
Tales from My Youth: The Saddest Summer
The year was 1994. The summer season between my Junior and Senior year of high school was starting to come to a close. I had spent much of the summer working and hanging out with my friends like most teenagers of that age did back then. I had already made the decision to not play football and dealt with the blow back caused by such a decision in a small town and school. Despite my decision about football, I was excited to start my senior year of high school.
That excitement quickly came to a crushing end.
The day was August 2nd.

Another Odd Encounter
I make no secret that I get a variety of emails and phone calls from various groups regarding their desires to sell me services for my books. Oftentimes it is that they want me to pay to be included in a book fair or they want me to purchase their marketing package to help promote my books' sales. I have gotten a few that were more egregious like the time someone asked me for $13,000 to turn my book into a movie idea.
I did not follow through with any of these agreements for a number of reasons.
After researching many of these groups and running across little information about them and what I did find not being positive, I started cataloging my contacts with them in a blog post, you can read it here. Given that the calls and emails kept coming, I migrated the information from that original blog post to a dedicated page on my website (found here).
