Woohoo — finally here.
Thirty-three thousand words and one life goal are behind me. Sometime (hopefully) before Christmas “Wicked Akron: Tales of Rumrunners, Mobsters and other Rubber City Rogues” will be out in local bookstores and available on Amazon. I am oddly jazzed by the fact that I now have a Library of Congress number!
One of the things I wanted to do with my year-long sabbatical from journalism was to find out whether I could write, research and create on a deadline without the structure of a big building with printing presses — kind of independent study for (semi)adults.
I also spent some time doing other types of business writing. At the end of the day I find that I’ve got another book or two in me, but I’m still a journalist. More on that later.
As Sundance said to Butch on his way off the cliff, “Oh sh……..!”
Every new chapter of life needs a good expletive.
