Some of you know that I was in the finishing stage of a Campfryer book. I received the proof copy in the mail today. A proof copy is a pre-production book that is checked for completeness, cover quality, etc.
It was a bittersweet day. Dad and I discussed the book earlier this year at his birthday party (he was a leap year baby) and he was waiting to get a copy. Sadly, he left us the first week of May. One of the first edits was changing the dedication page.
From here, I send the the official approval, order some copies and it will go into print.
It is a collection of humourous and serious stories. My outdoor poems are sprinkled throughout. Some of the stories were posted here. A few stories were inspired by 24 Hr Campfire members. Virtually all are about hunting, shooting and the outdoors.
The finished product is 6x9 format, 251 pages, glossy, colour cover. Price - $16.95 USD. It will be available from me, signed, or through amazon. Paypal for those of you in the US.
If you have any questions feel free to post them here, PM me or email me at steve
