Indie Publishing - Update 3 - DONE DEAL! PUBLISHED ON KINDLE! April 2011

 That was work!

I spent all Easter weekend and this week
rewriting, revising, and trying to solve formatting problems.

In the end, I pretty much rewrote the book.

So, here it is, in all its little glory:

 Now, on to more fun stuff!
Next book is titled Take Next Boat.  Not Coming Back.
The love story of my parents and their early days
in Hawaii, circa 1937, starring my mother's
journal letters back to her family in Los Angeles.

A big shout-out to Felipe Zapata for helping me find my voice
and for helping me find where to begin my story.
Yay, Felipe dude!

Stay tuned for more blog posts on Mexico:
a day with famous Mexican potter, a trip to Chiapas, and purchasing
artesania from the Mayan women in the surrounding
indigenous villages.

Not mention a book on living in Mexico - 
from the Mexican Trailrunner point of view - 
of course!

Now is a great time to be a writer!

If you have bought my book in the past or buy it now,
please leave feedback on the Kindle page!!!
Thanks, all.


  1. Glad to be of service. I hope the next book is going to be on Kindle too.

  6. Hi Marilyn! So happy to hear your success in publishing an e-book. When I read your first post regarding this I was so excited and looked into publishing my latest book as you suggested. Once I got on the sites, my hopes were dulled as the directions for formatting were a bit beyond me. I don't have your phone number. Please call me when you find the time. 0184 Shirl
