An Incredible Journey!

My book is about a Green Beret who leads the first team into Afghanistan after the attacks on 9-11. It takes you on an incredible journey from the jungles of South America to the deserts of the Middle East through, The Night Eagles Soared. By the time you finish reading my book you’ll know what it is like to be a Green Beret.

There has been a great deal of activity concerning the publication process for my book, The Night Eagles Soared. One thing that is noticeable right off the bat is that now we have a cover design that has been approved. You can see it on the right side of this page. In addition, the manuscript has been honed to a point that it is ready for the next step in the process.

So, with the manuscript ready and the cover design approved the entire project is ready to go to the layout and design department for the production of the Final Proof. I hope to have it in my hands by the end of May. Once the Final Proof is approved, then we go to print. And that is when the fun will start! So far this has been an incredible journey!

Final Draft

Well, I've done it! I've sent the final draft back to the editors at Tate Publishing so the next step is layout and design along with approving the final proof. Wow! This is really starting to go fast. I am also expecting to hear from Stefanie at Tate about her draft cover designs. I am so excited about that, it is unbelievable! We should be going to print within the next sixty days! Keep your fingers crossed!

Final Draft!

That is right, along with working on the cover design, we are now also working on the Final Draft of the manuscript for The Night Eagles Soared! This is a giant step forward in the procduction process. It won't be to much longer and we will be looking at the final proof! For the next two weeks I will be diligently going over the Final Draft to make sure there are no typos or other last minute changes that need to be made. So far it looks great!
