Book Interrupted: A Print on Demand Benefit

Please excuse the program interruption.  

 On the Trail of the Ancestors: A Black Cowboy’s Ride Across America is undergoing a few editing changes. Print on-demand publishing allows one to edit and revise, creating a new edition. The new book should be available within a week.  While only one reader pointed out one error, I found a few more when rereading the text again and again. Solveig Marina Bang, my professional editor and designer, and I had passed the pdf file back and forth about 20 times before the book went to press, but errors still happen.  We just completed a round of edits that should make the book grammar perfect.

As Marina wrote:  “We can make a week-long correspondence out of one sentence … that’s passion for language! “

Marina- reading & editing in Delhi, India

In the meantime, the book is still available on Kindle (that won’t be changed), and you can like On the Trail of the Ancestors: A Black Cowboy’s Ride Across America on Facebook!

Stay tuned; I’ll let you know when it’s back up on Amazon , Barnes & Noble, etc.
