    Congrats! The only thing that jumped out at me was an error on the back cover. There's a stray "period" that needs fixing.

    Congratulations!!! Now, never refer to yourself as a "writer" again. Anyone can be a "writer", but only an "author" has been published.


    of course that's just my own humble opinion stemming from an ex evil mil that was a writer only. :lol:

    The cover I posted was done before it was fixed. I'm suprise you didn't find the other mistake in the part about the author. Can you find it? They assure me that that period has been fixed. I hope so. It just sort of jumps out at you doesn't it?

    The appropriate spelling should be "wreaks" not "reeks".

    Is it the no space and between she and Volunteers? And also that fact that the v is a capital? It doesn't really matter, I can't wait to find and read the book. It sounds very interesting.

    The book would be for a more mature audience because of a small amount of adult language that had to be put in there to show one of the effects that dementia has on a person. Sometimes even the meekest of persons says things and uses language "not in their true character". If it weren't for those very few words anyone would have fun reading it. It not only reflects some of the outlandish things things they do and ideas they come up with but it gives a little insight into some of the things that was also going on in the life of one of his children.
    I think this book is gauranteed to expose at least four of a readers emotions. It will make you laugh, cry , feel angry and a little sad.

    The book is basicly about a man who believed there was a man living in his attic that was coming down, zapping him and his wife with a stun gun to have sex with his wife. He sets traps all over the house, inside and out to try and catch him. I really don't want to give it all away because I want evryone to read the book. The official release date is not until November 7th but I believe it can be ordered online now at www.publishamerica.com. The only thing is, right now, only the soft copy is available and I think its a little pricey at 29.95. The paperback will be much more resonably priced and I think I'll be able to offer anyone wanting one, an autographed copy a little later on at a better price since I'll be buying them at a bulk rate. And, of course you all want an autographed copy don't you???

    I haven't even go a copy yet!!! I do have some ordered though.

    Now, a little info. I chose this publisher because they handle everything for you and it doesn't cost you anything if they choose to publish your book. They provide the artwork and everything according to what you want. So far, I'm impressed with them.
