If I hadn't purchased the Meet the Town publications, it would be impossible to write and publish full time for me. It's nice to have that balance. I just reprinted the popular "Mostly Spruce and Hemlock" by Louis J. Simmons, the history of Tupper Lake that was originally published in 1976. It was a joint effort between my company and the Tupper Lake library. Sales are helping pay the bills this month. It is less than two weeks after the release date and I've sold more than 1,200 copies so far out of the 2,000 print run. For a small-time publishing company, that ain't bad. Hope to have more projects like this.
Thanksgiving was fine with the inlaws at Lake Clear. Hope you had a good holiday, keeping busy and all. Thanks for the invite for this site. Looks like a lot of fun. If you ever get a chance, check out my blog, Adirondack Writer, @ http://www.adkwriter.blogspot.com. Just trying to make a living as a writer/publisher. I love the freedom but could use more money for bills.
