My novel, Papa’s Shoes, has a publishing contract

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve signed a book publishing contract with Aberdeen Bay to publish my historical/romance/immigration story novel, Papa’s Shoes.

They’ve given me a lot things to provide to get it ready, including:

1. Author photo
2. Author bio
3. Cover art
4. Reviews for back cover
5. Book synopsis (short and long version)
6. Dedication
7. Acknowledgement
8. Book cover and synopsis for your previously published books


And Aberdeen Bay’s next steps are to do the design, layout, and production of the book so it is ready for publication this coming spring – April or May 2019. WOW! that’s fast!

I’m also pleased to say that Aberdeen Bay found my book just about ready to go. I guess it helped to revise, revise, revise and give it to a professional copy/line editor for a last editing shot. I’m forever indebted to my editor Pat Zylius – a very meticulous person.

Here’s a bit of information about Aberdeen Bay, taken from their website:
