“What is the most important thing that you hope your readers will get from your book?”
Welcome to 2011. While looking for something in the home office closet I found a CD. This CD had a recorded interview from 2011 with book publishing coach Flora Brown.
Her and I had connected back then on Linked In. My thought is that I do not ever remember sharing this interview other then the only social media that I was on and that was Linked In.
The discussion was focused around my first book “25 Tips for Divorced Dads” and towards the end you will hear about our “Ten Tips On How To Survive Your Parents Divorce” that Becca (bonus daughter) and Connor (my son) were working on.
While listening to this interview I was reminded that there was another book in me. That book was to be based on my experience as a stay at home dad. I’d better get working on that.
Personally and professionally after listening to the interview I felt that yes I was onto something but somehow got sidetracked. What I mean is that I should of built a successful business by now. It is not to late.
I feel that there needs to be more clarification about something early in the interview. My dad is one of the greatest people you will meet. I know at times he is painted as a bad dad but he was not. He wanted to be a single guy not a family guy and I totally respect him for trying to be a husband and father. As I did mention that he is not only a fantastic grandfather but the first time he met Betsy and Becca (my two bonus daughters) they were treated as if he was their grandfather. Dad I love you.
