Daily Post Prompt: Underdog

Bob Ossler, Chaplain

So this prompt I can write about: Underdog.

My coauthor (Janice Hall Heck) and I have written a book entitled Triumph Over Terror, a book about my experiences as a volunteer chaplain at Ground Zero after September 11. It was a hard book to write because of the painful memories of suffering that flooded back into my mind. But, to once and for all, clear my head of these memories, I enlisted the help of my writers critique group friend, Janice Hall Heck.

It took us a year, but now Triumph Over Terror has been published and available on
Amazon for just over a year where we have 51 5-star reviews.

Now we are in a Readers Choice competition, and we are an UNDERDOG, trailing a book about a special needs DOG by about 450 points. I don’t know how the author amassed so many votes. We have been working…

Quest Conquered: Book Published

My last post, A Quest of Another Kind,  was about a challenge that my friend Chaplain Bob Ossler and I undertook: writing a book about his experiences at Ground Zero after September 11. It took over a year and more than 1000 typed pages in various drafts, but we completed it and found a small publisher interesting in getting it out in print and ebook formats. Triumph Over Terror is for sale on Amazon and Ingram.

The book, Triumph Over Terror, has been out for just over a year, and we have entered various contests. We claimed a Finalist position in the  AmericanBookFest.com Best Books of 2017 competition, and earned the right to post this award on our blog site and on the book itself. http://www.americanbookfest.com

Now we are in the Readers Choice competition and are presently in 5th place. This competition requires readers to vote for their favorite book. Each author tries to drum up as many friends and readers as possible.  There is not tangible reward for winning this competition–just some bragging rights and a gold sticker to paste on the front cover of the book. Mostly it’s an honor and even a bit humbling to see how many people like and vote for our book.
