The Book goes to print - finally

It's now Thursday 11 November and today in Australia it was Remembrance Day for the men and women who gave their lives in the First World War. Those of us who choose to remember and revere those men and women, take time out at 11.00 am on the 11th day of the 11th month every year to spend two minutes in silence while we listen to the Last Post. Most workplaces play the Last Post over their PA systems. I for one spend two minutes each year in reflection for all those lives that were lost. I see war in a different way to those that wage it on their fellow human beings, but all those that died thought they died for their country and for a very good reason. That I choose to disagree doesn't stop me from spending a little of my life thinking about them. Lest We Forget.

The past week has been exciting with the news from the USA that finally THE manuscript has gone to the printer. But the long haul continues with the big release date being at least 5 months away. I wonder how I will make it through another 5 months. But at the very least it is out of my hair now and I can concentrate on the other important things, like the promotion of the book. My website is up and running www.secretslieschat.com and under construction.

Well that's about it for the day. The cover, front back and spine can be viewed on www.authorsden.com/venamcgrath.
