Still working hard on my new book, titled Less Beaten Paths of America: Quirky and Offbeat Roadside Attractions.
Writing a book is always a challenge. It takes time to do it correctly and, unfortunately, I have had numerous other things tugging at my time over the past few months, which has put my release date later and later.
Well, I want you all to know that I am working diligently on the book and have a number of chapters completed. When finished, this book will be well over 200 pages and chock full of color photos of some of America’s offbeat roadside attractions.
