Default Starting to see progress on the new book.

I got this layout for the back cover. Front cover still being worked on. Hope to have completed books prior to the Redneck Roundup.

Book is called 'I Was A NASCAR REDNECK' - 'Recollections of the transformation of a Yankee farm boy to a NASCAR redneck in the Golden Era of NASCAR and beyond'

It is a paperback 7" x 10", almost 600 pages, 165 pictures, about 1-1/4" thick.

This is definitely a "gotta read this!" on my list - I will need 3 copies, to start.
Yeehaw!

Default first look at the first design of book cover

Got this from the printers this afternoon. There will be some changes in font size, etc. but will most likely be similar to this.

Some new info. 605 pages, 165 pictures, weighs 3.63 pounds each, (15) 55 pound boxes to be shipped. Maybe in less than three weeks?
