I want to wish the entire world a Happy New Year!! I would also like to acknowledge by blog readers from Europe! I am happy to see you are checking out my blog. I am also acknowledging the readers from Russia! Thank you so much for stopping by to read about my book!! :)
I decided to dust off the keyboard and start writing Volume 2! After some thought, I came up with the title for Volume 2:
Construction Tales: Volume II: My Illuminated Path to Learn the Trade Continues
I decided to use that title since it is a play on electrical work and I continued to learn the trade long after I 'topped' out of my apprenticeship. This volume will cover what it was like to work while pregnant outside in January on the railroad. I also cover what it was like to go to work in a local county jail. I have a new cast of characters to discuss their antics. In addition, I plan to write about second hand accounts from other journeymen and journeywomen in Volumes 3 and 4. I must go back to brainstorming. Have a great week and New Year ahead! I wish all success and good health in 2014!!
I must say that I registered my work with the Writers Guild of America, East today. That would come in handy in the event a movie or film producer decides to put out some form of media that is based off of my book. I must ensure that no one steals my work. I got that tip from an actress who is reading and loves my book! Jo Harvey Allen did say she would provide a review when she finishes my book. I will post it when it becomes available! :)
Cheers to 2014!!
