Be proactive about the future: Attend the Family Economics Conference!

Posted By on September 6, 2011

And now for something encouraging, heartening, and motivating:

The economies of the world around us rise and fall, corporations come and go, but we are hopeful and excited about the future of the family economy. Families around America are beginning to see the vision for work and economics that existed for over 4,000 years – family-based production in the context of the household. Forget about world GDP, population implosion, or the CPI for just a moment, and consider the power of a family unit knit together in relationship, love, and honor – all diligently working toward the single goal of being productive for the kingdom of God.

This is the vision that you’ll find at the 2012 Family Economics conference, and it couldn’t come at a better time. While politicians are positioning for power and bankers scheme on the future of the world financial markets, we’re preparing families to grab a hammer and anvil and forge a fruitful household economy for the kingdom of God!

    With this topic of home economies in mind could you write or point me to existing articles that describe some of the roads you took to publish books like Mother and Hot Shots?

    I was home recovering from a surgery with 3 moderately crud stricken to really miserable boys when I picked up a book that my husband had borrowed from a neighbor and I thought they would like to hear.

    Next to my husband’s side of the bed was Hot Shots. My side of the bed tilts up from all the books stuffed under it, but they don’t interest my sons : ). I was surprised to see your name on the cover of Hot Shots about the first jet aces who fought in the Korean conflict. That is you correct?

    I was inspired to begin writing notes about maritime rescues that I have been involved with and begin a mental list of people I could interview for more. My husband and I were the first responders to the crash of the Sunset Limited, the worst trains wreck in US history. He is featured on the Discovery Channel coverage of the incident. I think this topic would interest people.

    I have written one book in the past, so I can get pen to paper but wonder what tips you would have on publication. My mother has written a book on preventing childhood obesity so I will pass any tips onto her.

    As varied as the experiences of woman who read LAF are, I think others could use the information as well.

    Now I am going to go back and enjoy some more articles on this topic!
    Thanks

  2. Hi, Deborah!

    Hot Shots was one of those once-in-a-lifetime projects I did to honor my father, who had died the year before while working on the manuscript. I just picked up his roll-o-dex and started calling veterans for interviews while pregnant with my second baby. I did phone interviews while the firstborn was napping and went through all the interview materials with my husband to cull out the best items for the book. I love history, but I admit I was really out of my depth on that book. I’d done interviews with my dad while working for him during the summers at home (I was his research assistant and typist). But walking around in Dad’s “boots” for the several months I did that book was a challenge. He was one of the most knowledgeable men on WWII and Korean War aviation history. The publisher had already been lined up before Dad died, so I didn’t have to pursue anyone to publish the book.

    Today, anyone can publish a book with the advent of eBooks, the Kindle, and the iPad! You don’t need to chase a publisher down–you just need to be willing to have several sets of eyes go over the final manuscript before you format it (PDF) for sale. Then you can have it listed with Amazon for Kindle and iBooks for iPad/Mac. There are a LOT of books and websites devoted to publishing your own books and marketing them. You can also do print versions through self-publication services like Lulu.com inexpensively. It’s worth looking into!

    I hope this helps!

    Warmly,
    Jennie
