Exciting News – the sequel

I guess it helps when the president of the organization delegates a task. I received his letter just a couple of days ago and today I get an email from the editor. If you remember in my last post the president of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Organization) said that they were going to review my book in their magazine, and I started jumping around the office in a happy dance. Then again, times are tough all over. 

Turns out that the magazine doesn’t have a book review section anymore. The editor explained that the magazine is now much more focused on just the areas of interest that affect their membership directly. Mostly this is about new restrictions and new fees that are being tossed around in congress that may significantly reduce a private aircraft’s utility and even how many can afford to fly one. It’s another example of system abusers ruining it for the rest of us. Fat cats from the auto industry fly to Washington meetings in private jets when begging for money, effectively giving the industry a black eye. Nice job guys…

Anyway he did offer to include a story in their website, which does reach a large percentage of their readership, maybe even larger than the magazine, but I kind of doubt it. 

So from my point of view, it’s all good. Yes, I would have liked to be in the magazine, but beggars can’t be choosers. Exposure is exposure, and when you are talking about an audience this large, it should be a great help. 

On another topic, I ordered a Kindle version of the book. I am not sure how long it will take to complete, but I will post up links when it arrives. 

As always get the book by clicking on the image below.
