Donna's Journal
15 of February, 2005

      Publish America, my publishing company,  is giving me a step by step direction for promoting my own book. So many authors who have gone before me share the ways they promoted their book, too. With only a few days into getting started,  I'm finding,  there is definitely much to learn.

      There have been three short ten, to fifteen minute talks at different groups and that gets me out of the house which is what must be done.  This is not exactly my cup of tea since there are always things to do at home. Only two days into my self-appointed schedule,  and it has become evident much has been happening that was unknown to me.

       The editor of a small newspaper, The Herald, at Newkirk, Oklahoma, pointed me to the director of the Mainstreet Historical Society. A small living room looking space of a by-gone era at the front of the building greeted me as I walked in off the street. Her office adjoined this and was, of course, modern with functioning equipment. When I mentioned the beauty of the antique entry room she told me it was to let people know the purpose of their office which is the preservation of history.

       As it turns out,  this is where I will be giving a presentation for the up coming tour of Chilocco on March 10, 2005.  We will return from the tour to this place where the group will have at least three speakers telling about the buildings on the grounds along with whatever they remember about their time at the old boarding school standing so alone on the prairie at this present time.

       We then drove on up to the edge of Arkansas City, Kansas where the Cherokee Strip Museum is located. What a pleasant surprise to see how very large it has become. The exhibits were so numerous it would take days to enjoy the whole thing completely. They probably will schedule me to do my book signing in the fall during one of their celebrations. Memorabilia from Chilocco was nice.  Rhonda and I both had a shivering cold experience as we walked past a very old surrey. We both were suddenly aware of it. What was that?

       A book store in town gave me a signing during October Arkalalah.
