No, really. This is a “red letter day.” As of this morning, the 210 vintage postcards and layout pages for my book, The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, were shipped to Arcadia Publishing. The book’s text went to the publisher electronically yesterday. It’s time to take a deep breath, celebrate a little, and start working on the proposal for my next book.
The process of writing The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina was a bit tedious at times as there were strict guidelines for the word count on each postcard caption, but it was a good writing exercise. The word count restrictions forced me to tighten up every sentence and delete every unnecessary word. This usually results in better writing. I hope you will agree when you read the book.
