Froggy's First Book

It's official; I just published my first book. It seems it was just yesterday that I was a druggie and had no ambition to do anything. For Froggy to write a book and get it published is a miracle.

The book is called Grandpa's Mission. It is 70 pages, full color, and is a compilation of many of my other writings.

So many people have said I need to write a book. I decided to give it a shot. I know that getting published can sometimes cost a lot of up-front money, which I don't have. I did a search for a publisher and came across the link below.

First Sale

Just yesterday I sold my first copy.

Create Space is print on demand. No up front cost to you. You do need to buy a proof copy to make sure it is right.

They have an upgrade for $39 that will allow you to buy copies of your book for a very low cost. If you have a good market, this may be the way to go.

You can develop the cover right through their web site.

Your book needs to be put in PDF format and to the size of book you want. This is called the trim size. I found the best program to do that is Open Office. Much like Microsoft Word, but you can download your article in a PDF format.

You can download Open Office through the link below.

Grandpa's Mission

My book deals with issues of child abuse, neglect, and child deaths.

If you do buy one, feel assured that any profits are going to keeping my Mission going. I have been given a job by God to keep awareness up at all times to protect the children. I will do this until the day I die, maybe I will even haunt people after I die.

Crimes against children are the worst. How can any human being harm a little defenseless child?

Please share the book with new parents. We must keep a watchful eye and make sure that abusers, molesters, and all other freaks are put away for these heinous crimes.

I will be writing more books in time.

You see the Amazon ad for Grandpa's Mission is above but below is the link to my special store to purchase it.

Just for all of you who are reading this and want a copy--here is a code for 10% off:


Thank you for reading and please say a prayer for the children.

    In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.
