I approved the final book proof yesterday. There are still a few little nits I have with the text, but I didn’t feel they were large enough to go through the entire process once again. I am also aiming to have books before a local trade show which a lot of my nonfiction readers will attend. I am hoping that I can get a chance to make an announcement at the show. It would be great if I could setup a table to sign books, but I think that may be pushing my luck. I will certainly ask, there’s no harm in that, but I suspect they will require me to buy space on their floor. 

I am also going to enter the book in a number of contests, but I think I will pick and choose. The entry fees, while not overly expensive, are not cheap either. 

I think my initial sales are going to come from Interweb contacts, social networking, friends, and the efforts to get into aviation bookstores. 

Wish me luck.


  1. Good luck! 🙂

  3. Yes, it will be difficult, but I am the type of person that likes to go out and meet people. Unlike some authors I enjoy meeting and talking to other people. We’ll see how that works out.

    As I have mentioned before, this book will appeal to a fairly targeted market, so as long as I do a good job of reaching them, I think I will do OK.
