Exciting news about "To the Mill and Back" and "On Our Way to the Fair"

Welcome to Lehigh Valley Writers

News about "To The Mill and Back"

Lean but still mean

Recently, while lugging a copy of "To the Mill and Back" around Philadelphia to use at an event I was attending, it dawned on me that it was, all things considered, a pretty thick book. I never intended it to rival "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" for bulk.

Also, I noticed that the original font wasn't so great. I'd also been told that on at least one occasion.

So after all that, I decided it was finally time to make a change. I knew I didn't have to cut any content to make the book smaller. It was a matter of reformatting. So all the words are still there. They just are in a little bit nicer format (Times New Roman, for those in the printing biz) and, more importantly, the wide margins are gone.

As a result, "To the Mill and Back" is about 200 pages shorter! But again, the story hasn't been cut at all! And, as a result of THAT, the price is down, too, on Amazon. So, you can take a look there and, I hope, give it a good review, even if you don't buy it!
