I was stuck in a nursing home for 3 1/2 months in 2008 and I blogged my daily trials and tribulations in a frank, honest, and often, humorous manner, accumulating somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 daily followers. If I heard it once, I heard it a dozen times, people said I needed to “make it into a book.”
Seventeen and a half months later, I am actually working on just that. I still have my faithful cheerleader and writing coach, Diane Owens, and we are just about to the point of either submitting query letters or book proposals to publishers. We are going to proceed with the expectation that we will find someone to publish the story and expect to have a book to sell by December 2011.
Be the first on your block to own a copy. Place your pre-order now! I don’t know how much it will eventually cost, if published, but I’m willing to offer all pre-orders the low, low price of $14.99. Send a check to:
Marlo J. Archer
1237 W. Auburn Dr.
Tempe, AZ 85283
If I don’t find a publisher by 2012, I’ll self-publish and you’ll still get your copy. If it turns out that the published price is lower than $14.99, I’ll send a refund check to the address that was on your payment check.
All pre-orders will be numbered and signed by the author. Reserve your copy now!
