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.
Some of what you’ll see in Book 2
