A Nevada sesquicentennial book update

The designer, Sue Campbell, and I plan to send the book to the printer by mid-December. We are in the final stages now.  I received the first draft of the layout today, and now the work begins to refine the look, proof the text and finalize the photo selections.

The book will be released in late May. It’s being published by Stephens Press but it will be marketed and distributed by the University of Nevada Press.

“Nevada: 150 Years in the Silver State” is going to be a fine book. It will be thick — probably 288 pages in a small coffee table size.  More than 70 writers and about a dozen photographers have contributed to the book. Many well-known Nevada writers are represented.

We cover a lot of ground in the book but it is not a comprehensive history of the state. There is ample history but writing about contemporary Nevada is laced throughout the book as well. It should appeal to a wide audience. Although it can be read from front to back, it also can be enjoyed more selectively.

I’m excited about it, but I’ll be very happy when the work is done.

    Website traffic doesn’t come easy these days. It’s hard and it usually takes a long time. In many cases, too much time… So much that you might be ready to give up. Someone shared a web traffic service with me on my site and I thought I would share it with you. I was skeptical at first but I tried their free trial period and it turns out they are able to get hundreds of visitors to anyones website every day. My sales revenue has increased tenfold.
