The Phantom to 'Hog Blog



OK, now I’ve written my book, Pen & Sword have published it, printed it and distributed it, and you, my friend, have purchased it. What now?

Well, with a bit of luck the next step involves you reading it and enjoying it immensely. Then, you can either loan it to a family member or friend, or carefully pack it up as a Christmas present (if you haven’t dog-eared the pages). Alternatively, you can put it on your shelf where it will rest, looking down on you, for all eternity.

Let me give you another alternative: Before you shuffle it on or relegate it to antiquity, reflect on the book you’ve just read and take the time to review it.

Your review won’t mean a great deal to you, but to a rookie author, it’s vitally important. It provides me with valuable feedback: did I appeal to readers as I’ve hoped I would? Are there important facts I left out or could have described better? Positive comments will be received with undying gratitude, constructive criticism will be accepted as exactly that—something to build upon. At my age a follow-up is less than likely, but you never know…….

  1. I was a crew chief on A/10’s for sixteen of my twenty years in the Air Force. For two years I supported the flight line as a First Sergeant and finished in MOC.
    I’m waiting patiently for my book to arrive and can’t wait to dive into it.
    I’ll definitely write a review and sure it will be great!! CHAPPIE

    • Hi Chappie
      Thanks for getting in touch. I think you’ll like the book, particularly the sub-chapter called ‘Trust.’ It pretty much sums up the respect airplane drivers like me have for airplane fixers like you! Thanks again.
