Full Steam Ahead - Leroy 'Hog' Cooper on Sax

Although I had run into some difficulties and planned to revise my publication goal to 2010, as plans often do, mine have changed once again. With the assistance of some valuable sources I am moving forward and am hoping to publish by mid-November of this year.

This on-again, off-again working process has caused a lot of stress for me and countless conversations with a number of people. I'm putting that all behind me now and securing the necessary photos from my secret (for now) national and international sources. After receiving my draft from the editors, I am in the process of making corrections and adding new content that I obtained.

Unfortunately, the Tribute to Leroy Cooper at B.B. King's Blues Club in Orlando has been cancelled, or at least postponed for now. I will consider rescheduling in January or February closer to the anniversary of Leroy's passing in order to honor his memory.

Now, I must get back to work. Hopefully, from here forward things will go smoothly. If they do, it will be a new experience for me!

Oh! I'm glad you were able to get the book release back on. Mid-november will be right in time for the Christmas shoppers too!

I'm glad things are on track again. Too bad about the tribute being canceled. As you say, maybe closer to the the anniversary of his death as both a tribute and memorial.

Hopefully I can reach my market without the tribute/book release. I'll find a way.
