I feel so blessed. New England has just been hit with another late winter blast, though the calendar says it is spring. Outside my door, birds are singing and jumping about on my newly mowed lawn. The bright March sun smiles down and I feel inspired to do greater things than ever.
At St. Clair Publications a lot is going on. I have recently put the final polish on the last revisions of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions. It is at maximum length, and I have added a number of new entries once again. Since it came out in March, 2013, the paperback version now has about 100 additional phrases. Each time I add new ones I have found improvements to make and myths to burst..
I also have my first travel book out, Exploring Our Exciting World, Book I, which covers the Greater Southeastern US. I have done considerable work on Book II, the completion of which I have decided to postpone until we return to New England and visit some important sites which will be featured. This trip is now scheduled for this September – October.
Another volume is largely done, the writing of which is being accomplished by three wonderful ladies. It covers a lot of ground in Europe. Another trip by one of the authors is scheduled for this May.
Right now I am working on another research volume: How 200 Celebrities Changed Their Names and Built Amazing Careers. This book deals with authors, singers, movie stars, magicians, sports stars and others who have adapted pseudonyms in order to improve their images and further their careers. The book deals with why and how these names were selected and how they reached their heights of fame. Several of those selected are individuals with which I have some personal or family connection. It is a lot of pleasure bringing out books of interest to the masses. It will be out later this year. I hope all are enjoyed and cherished by the readers.
