My Life as a Writer, and a Look Forward in 2013


I have been an active blogger for over 4 years now, and I have been a writer all my life.  I have started many projects, and have many incomplete books in drawers on various topics covering both my experiences and knowledge I have acquired, and wanted to share with others.  Until 2012, I never really had broken through and published any of my works, other than share information I learned on my blogs.

Understanding Land Contract Homes: In Pursuit of the American Dream

My first published work available now as an eBook in Kindle format on Amazon.

In December of 2012, I finally published my first two books.  They were a combined project that took me six months to compile into a book format, and I was determined to self publish them.  I finally released both of these book just before Christmas.

The first book is entitled: Understanding Land Contract Homes: In Pursuit of the American Dream.  It covers the basics of understanding the subject of Land Contracts for both buyers and sellers.  The follow up book was focused on the viewpoint of the investor in selling homes by means of a Land Contract.  It is entitled: Land Contract Homes for Investors.

Both of these books are in the field of real estate, and there will likely be many other topics that I write about in this subject field.  However, I have many other books in the planning stages which I intend to release this year in 2013, that are on sales, marketing and even a memoir of 15 years as professional stained glass artist.  The book I am working on right now is about sharing my experiences as a sales manager, and the lessons I learned.  I hope to have this available for sale in January or February of 2013.

Writing has always been my ambition from the time I was a young man.  I wrote short books with my younger brother when I was 9 or 10 years old, and even glued and bound them to share with my parents.  They were on crazy humorous topics that we as kids were interested in, but they were representations of my first ambitions as a writer.

Currently my plans include only making books available in eBook format, but I may offer some selected titles in traditional paper form later this year.  I look forward to an exciting 2013, and wish everyone who reads this a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
