There is some more work that needs to be done on the next post and so I was not ready to publish.
So, I decided to take a moment to let you know where I am at with the process. There are about 3 more posts left to complete the Ft. Leavenworth Story. This is not the title of the book, it’s just what I have been calling it so far.
Yes, this blog is the rough draft for the book.
In the begining, I rushed through some details and I need to dig a little deeper. There are some parts that I left out because I was not sure I wanted to talk about them. After I finish with the story, I will compile and revise the whole thing. The next step it to have it edited and make a decision on whether or not to self-publish or have it published.
Ft. Leavenworth is three hours away from Omaha and I plan to take a trip to down there to visit the Frontier Army Museum. After talking to someone on staff there, I was told that I could have access to their photo archives. This will give me some better visuals for the book.
A little over two years ago, I started writing. This is my one hundred and third published post and the blog has been viewed over 100,000 times. Never in a million years did I expect to write my story or even have anyone read it. I can’t thank all of you enough for all the continued and wavering support that you have extended to me. The comments, the social media shares, reading and reaching out to me means more that I can put into words.
Three people have been gracious enough to alow me to be on their podcasts. One has not been released yet. If you want to hear me talk about my story in the last one,
I thank my family for all the time they have sacrifced in order for me to do this. It has been very hard with the limited time we have together. My wife Lindsay is my rock and my kids are my everything.
I thank God for showing me what forgiveness and grace means and for never giving up on me. It is only by His power that I am alive to day to share this story with you. He had a plan and it didn’t matter how bad I messed it up, it seems like He feels that I am still useful.
Some housekeeping, it seems as if many of you who signed up for email notifications may be losing my posts to your spam folder. I am still trying to figure this out. If you could check your spam and mark it as “not spam” that may or not fix it. If you have not signed up for email notifications, I would be honored it you would consider it. It seems as if publishers ask about your email list when you want to use their services.
With that I will leave you with another cliffhanger,
Posting will resume next Tuesday.
