Default My dad wrote/is writing a book.

Ok so this is old news to me but my dad has been working on a book for a long time. He is almost done editing it(he want to have it uploaded and finished by the end of the week.) He has been speaking with a publisher as well. THIS BOOK IS MEANT FOR GUYS. That being said I think some of you guys should check it out. Im not sure how I would describe it but it is basically a funny book about divorce,ex's,women,girlfriends,wives etc. He read a few chapters in front of some of his friends and a few girls they all thought it was good and said they cant wait to read more. So Ill see if he can email me a sample of it so you guys can check it out. Like i said im probably not using the right words to describe it but you guys can see it for yourself. Anyone interested?

After two divorces and two long term relationships, I got my own book. Your dad's book should be interesting.

Yes, I would be interested.
I have written two books, bothe published within the last two years. They are available on Amazon (as well as a few other on line book stores). You can check out the reviews there. One is titled "Of Children and Unicorns,
and the other is a book of poetry titled, "O'Sullivan's Place." My pen name is Joe Robert. If you would like to have a personally autographed copy of either one, send me a pm.

I'm a published author, winner of three book accolades. I can say the publishing industry is not what it use to be, as reading in this country, especially amongst the computer generation is quite low. But I would like to read a sample of your father's manuscript when posted on FTF. Every man has a story within him dying to get out. Good luck to him.

My dad was writing a book for over 40 years, and then died last week with it unfinished and unpublished. We are in the process of trying to recover his last writings of it off of his computer and then seeing what we can do to get it published. It has to do with human behavior, logic and brain function. I did read some of it several years ago but nothing since then. I dearly regret that he had not been able to see it in print himself before he passed on.

Your father is very lucky that he will see his work in print, successful or not.
