I created The Road to Promise nearly three and a half years ago as a platform for material I hoped to publish in memoir form. I was thrilled at the support I received as I told the story week after week, and I gained a great deal of satisfaction sharing my experiences that took place during a challenging time in my life. I am thrilled to say that the Native American portion of the material, which is contained in the most recent few posts, is available for sale in print and as an e-book titled Stranded on the Road to Promise. I will eventually publish the Costa Rican portion of this material in a mid-length-material book, and I am hoping a celebrity looking for a movie project to produce and star in would be interested in either or both stories as a viable vehicle (are you listening Reese Witherspoon?).
This is the perfect example of a blog-to-book project, which I now advise clients how to achieve, taking material through the editing phase and into publication through the indie imprint Sharktooth Press, which I co-founded with Gerard McLean. I am still blogging, reporting on my literary adventures on the Improvateur blog on SaxonHenry.com.
