I met with my editor this morning at Shaw’s Coffee to go over his and my final corrections for the Gateway Arch book. After we were done, he told me I would get another PDF next week so I could look it over a final final, final time. Lorraine was thrilled about the prospects of looking at it again. WILL WE EVER BE DONE WITH THIS BOOK?
With this post, Heidi the Beer, Brats, and Baseball beer lady is moving to a new address: stlouisgermans.com. I’ve posted here at jimmerkelauthor.wordpress.com for several months but want to be at the new address before we publish the book. There will be lots of neat features that will help people get the most enjoyment from Beer, Brats, and Baseball, plus learn about the German community here. I’ll have a link to this website. Reading it since I started gives a sense of the commitment needed to write a book.
The photo shows videographer David Ayres shooting part of a video of me at the German Cultural Society’s Sommerfest today. The promotional video about the book will be out some time before its release. David’s new wife Chelsea Ayres took the picture. The successful writer has to expect to sell, sell, sell.
Good day, though a tiring one. I was thrilled that Bill McClellan used an odd item I found while doing research as the basis of a column.
I’m moving ahead on proofing and working on the video. Tomorrow I’ll go to Sommerfest with David and Chelsea Ayres for some shooting of the video.
