Publishing with WestBow Press
I think my idea for a book came from the result of journaling for 20 years ever since my son took his life back in 1995. That Christ placed a certain peace about his suicide and that I needed to capture what was happening and eventually get it into book form.
WestBow Press, I would say was just the right publisher at the right time. My desire to get my message out in book form. I believe God had a hand in all.
They encouraged me much through the process of editing and through their e-mails and phone calls. I never lost sight of my goal to finally get my message out in book form. Their high standards as to potential libel even helped me to forgive someone from 30 years back, who I thought caused the death of my wife. I actually wrote another chapter in my book as the result.
All-in-all it was a very good experience to finally get my message out in book form. I am presently writing another book from all the encouragement provided to me by WestBow Press.
