How I became a trumpet book author

from my “Behind the Wheel” trumpet wisdom series.

In this video I discuss the circumstances that lead to me becoming a book publisher. I’ve been self-publishing my trumpet books since 1990 and currently have dozens of books published. With five new ones coming out this year.

In the video I point out that I am not a likely candidate for being a successful trumpet book publisher. That’s what makes this story interesting and worth sharing. I am not the kind of person that should be able to sell any books at all.

And yet, we sell books all over the world with a steady stream of sales that continues to grow.

I said in the video that I consider this one of the miracles in my life. God has blessed me with more than my share of miracles, and “book sales” is one of them.

Getting Caught Up

This Behind the Wheel video is from a few months ago. We are posting two of these per week in order to get caught up. The regular Wednesday post is the more current one. The Thursday posts are the older ones that I did over the summer.
