Craig Cornish - Published Author!

Blog Posted:6/26/2022 7:15:00 AM

Congrats to Craig Cornish for publishing his first book, "Nothing Never Happens", posted  on Amazon Books.  He collaborated with Carol Richardson to finally get it done.  It's almost 200 pages and very well done.  It's a great feeling to finally hold the book you spent many hours creating in your hands. 

I have numerous books from PS authors, (Sandra Haight, Paul Callus, Silent One, Robert M. Levasseur, Eve Roper, Andrew Fairchild, etc.) and now Craig' book joins that collection.  I also see in recent blogs a couple of new self-published authors and will check them out as well.  Meanwhile, everyone should check out Craig's.  Thanks

I'm so indebted to Craig for making this happen! When he first ask me to join him, I wasn't sure enough of my work, and knew nothing about publishing. His encouragement gave me the push I needed to say yes! And thanks to his hard work, and advice from you, Mark Massey (thanks from me too!) ...we now have a book available through Amazon! Will wonders never cease? Thanks you all!

Doesn’t seem to be available on Kindle ~ will definitely try to get hold of a pdf if available, I find that more convenient than paperbacks. Congrats, Craig! May even higher laurels come your way

Mark's accomplishment is a timeless achievement, I'm so glad to have helped in anyway and totally in awe--no adjectives can do his book (and he's working on another) justice. I understand the process but would never be able to make the commitment and the expertise involved.

Thanks, Mark, for being on your toes, and my sincere compliments, Craig, on your stellar achievement. It'll arrive Tuesday, guessing it's a paperback like Lonna's, also arrived in 3 days--being Hawaii--surprised me, Aloha~William
