A WordPress Choice

My father, Del Burk, wrote a biography, Horses, Trails and Trophies, mainly describing the more difficult and special moments in his life as a big game guide.  His experiences took him to the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, the Casiar Mountains of BC, the buffalo plains and McKenzie Mountains of the North West Territories, and the Coast Mountains near Carcross, Yukon.

My wife and I facilitated the self-publishing of that biography.  My research into ways of continuing the vanity press approach to publishing, but, using the Internet led me to WordPress.  So far I have spent quite a few hours studying WordPress.  First of all I went to my most used site of the last ten years, Lynda.com, for a set of wonderful video tutorials showing me how to use WordPress.

Then, after some quick evaluation I purchased a book, by Chuck Tomasi and Kreg Steppe, Sam’s Teach Yourself WordPress 3 in 10 Minutes.” It went with me on a three week vacation in Maui.  Over ten hours I read it twice and felt a little more comfortable with WordPress.

I spent most of my professional years working in Educational Technology. A job and a passion. I am now trying to retool as a writer. My web site focuses on the Stonechild Chronicles, novels of a young Cree trapper and linguistic prodigy who volunteers for a private Scots regiment as the world braces for WW 2. I publish through www.smashwords.com. If you search there by Jim Burk or Stonechild you will find my content including a biography of my father, "Horses, Trails and Trophies."
