Next step – publishing

I met with Matt Davenport this last week (Ankeny Writers met him at Montezuma Writers Workshop last September). Anyway, I have agreed to move Sugar Loaf stories forward with him. I had already formatted the novel for Create space, so Matt’s putting book out to bid to three of his several editors. I will choose one. I have a color photo taken (circa 1955) from the hill down over Mound City (Sugar Loaf) that may become the cover. Then Create Space will distribute to all paper formats (Amazon, etc.) and we will also put out on e-book to all sources. Hope done B/4 Christmas.

Also, Matt has organized a long standing writers group that meets monthly (last Tuesday) at INSPIRED GROUNDS ON 5th Street WDM to brainstorm marketing and be clearinghouse for book fairs, etc. Good find. Bob (from Ankeny Writers) and I are going on Tuesday. 5:30 start, ends by 7:30.
