Since I don’t have any object (term used literally) I really cherish except for wife and children, grandchildren and great grand children. I posted a picture of my first published book that means a lot to me after my wife pushed me to publish. I had been writing for years and rewriting the story and never once gave a thought to actually publishing the book. Sort of closet writer as a stress reliever from my everyday life in management. After reading the first book, she pushed for a year until I finally gave in. I had no idea about publishing and once I did publish this book. I took it upon myself to learn all about the publishing industry and now have a lot more books published and this time I didn’t have to pay to have it published. You won’t find the book on any bookstore shelves except the local Hastings under local authors. I paid good money for the cover being exactly what I wanted, hence that is why I cherish it so much. Under my wife’s urging I have now published fifteen books and that is why I cherish my first book so much. It may never make a best seller list but it is listed in the Library of Congress and has a copyright in my name. Something no one but my children and family may some day look at.
