Have Any of You Ever Written a Book?


Out of curiosity, I know there is a wide range of people that post on these boards, but have any of you actually written a book? It doesn't have to be history necessarily.

I wrote a masters thesis that was 70k words long. One copy went to me, 1 to the lecturers for marking, one to the exam board and one to the university library.

Not exactly a best seller.

I wrote a 50-page paper comparing and contrasting the Confederate constitution and the Federal constitution.

I have kept a lot of interesting diaries of my life's adventures. One day some one could make them into a book
