Shameless Plug for Mom's Book

My parents sailed around the world and my mom wrote a book about it. It is called "The Oceans Are Waiting" By Sharon Ragle

They met in a very interesting fashion and then sailed off into the sunset.
Here is the short cut to it:The Oceans Are Waiting - Around The World On Yacht Tigger -

Thanks for letting me shamelessly plug moms book

Erika

Autographed copy

I talked to my mom and told her about this website and my posting. she wanted me to let everyone who is interested in her book know that an autographed copy can be arranged.

PM me for details.



Thanks,
Erika

PS
It is a great book even though I'm only mention once or twice! As any good daughter would, I thought there would be a whole chapter devoted to the inspiration I gave her to sail away into the sunset. Especially the teenage years, learning to drive, dating, I can't tell you how many times she would say "God take me away from all this".

I'll have to check it out. I commend her on getting that job done. I've written one book and I underestimated what it would take to get it done by about 2 years! I think most of my useful brain cells ended up spilled out somewhere on those pages!

Your book

Drew.ward,
Your book, is it a sailing book? I wish I took after my mom but writing is agony for me. Well, I know its agony for writers too but you writer types just go back for more, I run!
