I learned over this past month how amazingly easy it is to let anything - and I mean ANYTHING - get in the way of writing your book. Even 'good' things like genealogical research - and things which aren't so good, but are oh-SO-enjoyable, like watching TV, surfing the net, eating pancakes...and things which are essential, like breathing in and out. Or should 'eating pancakes' come under the heading of 'essential'? LOL
I also learned the price of honesty when I went through the proper
channels for getting permission to use a photo I found on the Internet.
Incidentally, although the copyright owners have my cheque (they
confirmed it only when I asked), they still haven't cashed it, so I
don't consider I have their permission. Yet.
I would like to know more about publishing and self-publishing.
It may be a while before my book gets anywhere near good enough for
publishing - let's say 'a long time before it gets finished enough
for publishing' (sigh) - but I am very aware of the HUGE delight it can
give you to find something written by an ancestor, and so I would like future genealogists to find my book and do the genealogy happy dance because of all the names and dates and places - and stories - which it contains.
