I'm excited to read it. I have some buddies who were in the war, and I think they'll be interested too

Thanks. I have been very busy trying to market my book and conduct the research for my next book. I will try to contribute more often.

Any luck with the marketing thing? Is the book moving at all?

Yes. I have sold over 100 copies at book signings and public speaking engagements. It is hard to tell about movement elsewhere because the feedback is so slow. It takes over two months to get feedback on sales from my publisher.

Well, that's more than I'VE sold (smile).

Writing and publishing are two totally different animals, I guess.

Oh, well. Good luck. Keep us posted.

Writing, publishing, and selling are all different. The writing is the fun part. Although, I do enjoy the public speaking part of the selling. I have put together several presentations for speaking engagements.

1. The Ambush of Jessica Lynch's unit.
2. The Battle of An Nasiriyah in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
3. A Comparision of Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom.
4. The pros and cons of Print on Demand Publishing.

These presentations are all part of my marketing plan to get as much exposure as I can with my current book and speaking engagements, in preparation for the release of my block buster book, "Marines in the Garden of Eden."

I am planning on releasing it in the fall of 2005.

See, I think that's a great idea--speaking and then using the opportunity to sell.

Me, I'm too disorganized to keep all those plates spinning at the same time.

Richard,

Just wanted to chime in, here.

I not only bought your book, but have read it and am planning on putting up a review here under reading books...

needless to say I liked it..gave it to mom to read next.

I'm glad it's selling well at your speaking engagements!


(mudge, can't wait to read yours, when you get it off the back burner and into the publishing frying pan)

Both of you are way ahead of me as my books are still works in progress.

Please keep us posted on the marketing/selling aspect of the process Richard as many members will be very interested...you may want to dedicate your own posting to it when your tour de force winds down.

Hey Richard... I just picked up the March/April Bookmarks magazine and found your book listed in the back... don't know if you were the advertiser listing it or your publisher... but have to say it's really cool to see it in a national publication :clap:

well, if I like it as much as I liked your "Legacy" you will be very rich! My Dad liked your book so much he sent a copy to like EVERYONE he knew for Christmas! Plus he kept a box of copies in his office and he would just hand them out! So, I'm looking forward to this one! thanks for keeping the old man happy! Good luck, you wont need it!
