Cover Reveal: Wisdom From a Father

Wisdom From a Father.

Wow, that’s a high bar. But the project — my second published work — is moving along quite nicely, albeit it with some curves and challenges. Still, I am anticipating a mid-November hard launch at West Fayette (NY) Presbyterian Church Nov. 18 and a repeat Dec. 6 at the Thompson Free Library, Dover-Foxcroft, ME, for my friends and followers from the Pine Tree State.

Wisdom From a Father is a reflective look at life, segmented into chapters. The words are updates of posts made right here on my blog. I’ve chosen 52 so readers can use the book as a weekly devotional if they so choose.

The cover features a photo I took of the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, ME. The long planks hopefully invite readers to the lighthouse and, in turn, to open the book and choose their own path and pace. The type — Edwardian Script — was chosen to be personal and intimate. The combination blends the illumination, resilience and comfort of the lighthouse with words that hopefully guide, build inner strength and give hope.

I don’t profess to be a teacher or leader — and never have. I’m just that ordinary Joe walking on the path of life … and sharing it with you. There are joys. There are tribulations. There are reflections. There is every day life. In each essay I try to convey a recognition of a greater Power who colors my perspective. My comments are always filtered through the lens of my Judeo-Christian values and largely based on 40 years of marriage raising five children.

This is my second venture into the world of book publishing. I released my first novella, Heaven Shining Through, last March. For a first time venture, the novella has been receiving mostly solid 4-5 stars and positive reviews. It remains available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and is listed at GoodReads.

For those of you who do not know me, I am  the retired owner/publisher of Reveille/Between the Lakes, a weekly newspaper in Seneca County, NY, right smack in the middle of the beautiful Finger Lakes. I’ve worked in the newspaper industry all my life including stops in New Jersey, Illinois, Ohio, Washington, DC, Maryland, New York and now Maine. My late wife — my inspiration in life — and I raised five children and currently have 18 grandchildren and three great-granddaughters.

I’m getting excited! I hope you are as well!

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Cockiness is the worst thing you could wear.
