Hi there & welcome to BdaKiNE.com
Okay, I need to give a shoutout and some love to my hubby for publishing his latest book “Back from the Dead”. This is the first book that he has written all by himself. It was a long and hard process but after two years, he has finished it! He would get up at 4:30 every morning and start writing and researching. Around 3pm, he would finish up for the day and go ride his bike to clear his head.
For those of you who don’t know him, he tends to be very long winded and he writes in a similar manner. The original manuscript was probably twice as long as the published book – Simon & Schuster felt very strongly that his audience is not of the 300,000 word type. After much back and forth with his editor, they finally agreed to a finished copy.
He was very lucky to have an amazing publicist who got him on just about every major newspaper, magazine, radio and television show. A lot of people don’t like doing book tours but Bill thought it was a lot of fun. He combined book signings and appearances with his basketball broadcasting schedule which made it easier for him time wise and saved Simon & Schuster money on airfare. Bill’s publicist told me that a lot of authors think that once they finish their book, the hard part is done. What they don’t realize is that selling a book takes a tremendous amount of time and effort.
I could not be more proud of my husband for his tenacity, determination and discipline in writing, finishing and selling his book; what a blessing that he is “back from the dead”.
Thank you for visiting BdaKiNE.com & Have a grateful day
