What is today? Oh, yes, it’s Wednesday and we’re on the 13th day of blogging. It’s the end of the day for me, and also a deadline day for my weekly historical article. I still haven’t done the meme thing, or the name questions. Hope I’ll have time tomorrow for that.
Scanned a lot of old photos today as I begin my quest to get them all on discs along with identifications and explanations. These are photos I’ve run across doing research, most of which will soon be lost if they aren’t copied. They are in old newspapers. Some are not very good scanned, because the screening wasn’t done well and it criss-crosses the picture. Others are very nice. I’ve vowed to scan a stack of them each Wednesday when I write my column.
A book I had published a while back, several years in fact, has numerous old photos that I had copied. It went out of print recently and I’m wanting to get it back in print because I have so many requests for it. Not an easy task when it’s mostly photos.
When searching for places to sell your non fiction books about your area, don’t forget the State Parks. A new state park that just opened about 12 miles south of me has bought about 50 books from me so far because the books I have available are about the Ozarks. It’s necessary to register as a vendor first, but that didn’t cost me anything, just filled out some papers and received my number.
Have a great evening.
