Congratulations! What a neat opportunity, and I love that it came about because of your blog.

Dominique King

You know, when I sat down and thought about it, all of the recent writing gigs I've gotten came my way in large part because of the blog! In this particular case, a friend from another online forum knew about my blog and recommended me to the book's editor when asked about other writers. Even more to the point, I'd just done one of my lighthouse stories...and that was the first entry the editor asked me about writing for the book.


Woo hoo, congratulations! Quite an accomplishment!

Dominique King

It was an interesting project, and I'd love to do more similar work. There were times when I wondered if the book was ever going to come out :lol:


Congratulations! I found your blog in a google search over a year ago, about silent film, but I've found it interesting to follow for all its other content too.


Nice, a big congrats to you!

Dominique King

Randy-Thanks for stopping by! I do love silent films...and they'll occasionally find their way into the blog. Did catch the story I did just after this one about Gloria Pressman?

Charlie-Thanks! It was fun to finally see the book :)
