my car's engine fused together (thanks to a bad repair job) and countless lawyer consultations, confusing trials and nail-biting, a judgement has been rendered in my lawsuit.
NOT in my favor.
Quick recap: Radiator cracked in Montana. Got it fixed at a Ford dealership. 6 days later their radiator failed and destroyed my engine. They said "not their problem." I sued.
And the judge agreed with them. It's not their problem.
If I knew it was hopeless, I would have scraped together money for a replacement car by now, instead of renting vehicles in the hopes for reimbursement.
But I guess that's not their problem either. And I should have known better than to sue a major business (and their high-powered, high-cost attorneys) on a budget like mine.
There's screwed and then there's royally boned. I feel like I'm in the latter category right now.
I refuse to stay down for long. Time to pick up the pieces and try to recover.
Trying to think of ways to pay for attorney/rental/get-a-car-again costs, I decided (like a lot of other bloggers do) to write a book.
I promise the idea didn't start like this:
What better thing for me to write about than what I blog about?
If I make it, would you be interested? Or will it be a flop? 99 cent eBooks are all the rage, so why not give it a shot?
For those of you that have published your own, do you have any advice to share?
For example: Pictures or no pictures?
This book is designed to entertain, so let me know what you would like to see in it. Bonus content? The best of the best? More Mormons? Less Mormons?
Finally: Other bloggers. eReaders allow links, and I was thinking about adding a 'sponsored' blogroll into the book. "If you liked these stories, you'll LOVE _________" That blank space could be you. If I sold ad space in my book, would you be interested??
With luck (and maybe some celebrity endorsements) this will help me get back on track, and into reliable transportation. Stay tuned!
