My memoir, The Flight of a Wild Duck, was published a year ago. It took me three years to write; a year of research, a year of drafting, and a year of editing. While it was a lot of work, I found the experience rewarding. I learned a lot about the history I had lived through, which in retrospect, I would often view differently. I also learned a lot about myself. I found that I had done more and accomplished less than I had thought. While writing, I imagined that my experiences/lessons could be helpful to others, and many might enjoy my stories.
It has been gratifying to hear from many that read my book, and for them, it seemed I had accomplished the objectives I had in mind when I wrote the book.
But since it was published, only about 500 copies have been sold. Partly because of the world we live in where fewer books are read, and more and more books are published. So as part of the promotion for the book, I did many interviews (podcasts and youtube videos). The result was hundreds of thousands had to listen to my stories. But reading a book is a different experience.
It is not too late to read it. Just click on this link. I would appreciate it. Also, if you have read the book and liked it, please help me by promoting it on your social network.
