Those of you who know me know I have had a few "troubles" the last few weeks and I have had to face a few home truths... home truth number one? Family will start coming before adventure!
Right it's like this, it's been my dream forever and a day to retrain. To do something other than point a weapon and have them pointed back at me. Those who have done the job know that after a few years it gets a bit boring. Soooooo...................
I have four chapters finished to a book that goes through the entire time in the Legion and the eight months spent in Baghdad. It laughs at and with the Legion and it talks of bootlegging and illegal arms sales in Iraq. It goes through the everyday duties of the PSD teams and deals with the mental scars working there leaves behind. I do not want to bust things wide open and start pointing fingers, I do not want to glorify war, I do want to show the reader what goes on inside a soldiers head. There are some things in the book which will make people at least look at both the Legion and the Iraq conflict with a different perspective.
My question is this, what do I do with it now? I have been told by a cpl of people its good but can I start now trying to sell it or promote it or even to simply promote interest in it? I want a new start, a new job. Any pointers you ladies can give will be welcomed.
