"Hairnets and Aprons" Won't be a Buried Treasure!

"Hairnets and Aprons" will be published soon, I mean, probably by the end of July 2016!  How did this happen you ask?
I had been writing the book for about eight years and considered it “Completed” last year.  Over the last few years I have tried the traditional route of sending it to publishers to see if they were interested in publishing it.  The publishers mostly commented that “The concept is interesting, but this project is not for us.” 
I wanted a publisher since the book wouldn’t cost me money.  To self-publish it costs me, especially for editing which can be expensive.
After a loss of a loved one last month I knew I had to do something to move my book forward.  As I have found out, life can be short. 
I knew I had to find an editor who could do content and copy editing for the book.  I had several recommendations and had to choose one.  Someone I knew recommended a person who can do the whole project from editing, getting ISBN #, help with marketing and such.  I choose him and now my book will be in print soon. 
I have carried my book “Hairnets and Aprons” on my shoulders for many years.  It feels a little lighter already knowing the project will be complete, except for getting people to buy it of course.  But at least I can say it is done.  Will I be able to recoup the money spent to bring it into reality?  Time will tell.
I heard a speech the other day that said, the graveyard is the richest place in the world.  People’s hopes and dreams are buried there, never realized, never brought into fruition.  I’m glad that my dream for “Hairnets and Aprons” won’t be buried. 
Once the book is ready for print, I’ll let you know.

Anecdote of the Week
Ode to the Lunch Lady - Submitted Jane Broberg

We toil and sweat in the middle school kitchen.
With laughter, tears, and even some bitchin...
Is it the generous pay you ask?
Why heavens no, please pass the flask.

We ove our jobs for many a reason.
But #1 is the summertime season!
The smells, the clatter and constant chatter
And the children's smiles are what really matter.

Ovens wafting with the smell of homemade bread,
Or do you prefer the aroma of chocolate chip cookies instead?
Chicken nuggets, spaghetti and sloppy Joes,
To find out kitchen, just follow your nose.

The government would like to spoil our fun,
Their ever changing rules have us under the gun.
What temp did you say the pizza should be?
What size scoop goes in the peas?

Bruises, cuts and too many burns,
When it comes to these we all take turns,
Shredded fingernails and aching feet,
Without these, our day wouldn't be complete.
We feel we have the best job there could ever be,
Because we work with such wonderful ladies you see!

Lunch Lady Poem

We love the hairnets, the aprons and smiles.

The meals that you cook keep us going for miles.

Buts it's not just the meals; it's your kindness and care.

We think you are wonderful and love the meals you prepare.
