About Our Book and this Blog
My sisters and I have written a book and are in the process of getting it published. I was visiting my sister Ruth and as usual we were sitting in her sun room drinking our morning coffee and chatting. Ruth said, “We sisters should write a book!” This sounded like a great idea to me. After all we all are very good writers and what a treasure it would be to our children.
After talking about it some more, and drinking a couple more cups of coffee, I decided we needed to contact our sister, Vicki, to see what she thought of writing a book. Vicki is always up for a new adventure so she thought it was a good idea and it was decided that we would go for it.
After vacation I went home and started writing. I wrote two stories, “Growing up in a Small Town” and “Relatives”. I set the project aside as I became busy with other tasks. Finally in May all of the sisters went on a vacation to Cabo San Lucas and took my Netbook with me as I always do. One afternoon I read my stories to the family and it was then that we decided that I would write the first part of every chapter and the other sisters would expound on it with their experiences.
I came back and by the end of June had completed 12 stories. Now it was time to get my sisters busy. I sent the writing to all of them and then gave them a deadline to get their parts done. As the project Manager I knew it was important to have timelines. The first one came and passed and a few writing were submitted but not all. With a little gentle encouragement ( and maybe a few threats) we finished the book by November.
We have a publisher and our book should be out by Fall.
