Our publishing company, AV Publishing LLC, has published three books so far: My two personal memoirs, Reunited: When the Past Becomes a Present, and From Italy and Back: Coming Full Circle, and my husband, Alan Votta’s book, Real Stories from a Nuclear Submariner: Once Upon a Time/This Ain’t No Bullshit. We have been pleased with the reception that each book has gotten.
At this time, I have been hard at work writing what I am calling a Professional Memoir, about the twenty years I spent as a work/life and human resource consultant creating, developing, and growing the work/life movement. My working title for the book is: The Growth of the Work/Life Movement in Corporate America: And the Professionals Who Made It Happen. I have spent the past several months writing and recollecting my memoirs of a time that was exceptionally intense, and resulted in moving the needle in a positive direction. I have also found joy and energy in reconnecting with old colleagues and friends with whom I worked during that time frame, and have been delighted to get such positive feedback about my efforts.
I hope to have a first draft of my manuscript in the hands of my initial readers within 4 to 6 weeks, and then will start an aggressive pre-publication marketing effort prior to publication, sometime late spring. I will be posting several more blog posts to inform you of my progress.
In the meantime I have reviewed all of my past blog posts, since I started this blog in 2012 before I published my first book. I admit that I haven’t been all that efficient in posting regularly, but I am hoping to get better at that. I invite you to reread some of my older blog posts to see how far we’ve come.
Thanks for reading.
