Announcing John McClarren’s Online Business!
Dear friends and family,
This is a bit like a grand opening email, but let’s call it a re-grand opening email for my website, considering that it has been around for a few years. I am finally ready, or nearly so, to publish my first book about military life, titled MILITARY LIFE – SERVICE OR CAREER A SOLDIER’S PERSPECTIVE. The manuscript has been completed for several years actually, but I was convinced for a very long time that traditional publishing was the only way to go. The industry has changed remarkably over the last couple of years, and the logical way for me to go is both print and e-publishing. This book is written primarily to two groups of people. The first group is young people finishing high school or college, looking for an occupation or profession, who might be entertaining the idea of the military, either as a four-year enlistment or as a lifelong career. It is one of the few resources available written from a personal perspective of one who has been there and done it, showing experiences that I have gone through and highlighting both the good and the bad of the military life. The second group is that of the older folks who have also been through similar experiences of my own and would like the opportunity to go back and reminisce some of the good, bad and ugly times. It should be a fun read for most readers, as well as educational for many.
Shortly after the above book is published I want to do the same with my memoir, which again has been completed for quite a while. That one is tentatively titled ZERO TO SEVENTY (CAUTION: HAIRPIN CURVES AHEAD).That book focuses on not only a good part of my life, but the directions it took and the fact that assuming risks all along the way accounted for most of the end results. Those risks resulted in injuries, failures, and disappointments, all of which added up to a wonderful life with everything I could ever ask for, including happiness and fulfillment and a wonderful family. I am not through taking risks, and I am by no means finished with furthering my accomplishments. I love to write, and I have two more works in progress with many ideas floating around in my head for further projects. I am planning to live to 110 years old; so I have plenty to time to finish all those projects and many more. Stay with me, and please feel free to spread the word. Hopefully many of you know others who might be interested in one or both of the above books when they are published, and I will inform you as each one comes out.
