TO LEARN THE BUSINESS OF AUTHORING A BOOK:
There, that should give just about everyone a path to reach the appropriate information.
Today we'll be talking about my odyssey in writing and publishing Masters of the Art, A Fighting Marine's Memoir of Vietnam.
We'll talk about some of the little known facts of the Vietnam War that have been hidden and discarded by the American Terrorist Media, how I decided to write about Vietnam from the point of view of a proud Marine who served with people of honor and distinction, and how hard it was to get published from that point of view. We'll run from the early days of the hardcover version to the softcover that Random House released two years ago and is still selling well today.
There also is a call in number for listener calls: 1-800-773-0355 or
(Outside the USA) 1-310-328-9300.
As I mentioned above the show airs live on Tuesdays at 4PM Central Time (5pm Eastern 3pm Mountain, 2pm Pacific) so let's all get behind it.
Thank You and Semper Fi.
