My grandfather’s name is Don McQuinn. He served in the Marines for 20 years, serving in Korea in 1951 and Vietnam (1964-65 and 1970-1971).
At the age of 42 he retired and ended up becoming an author, his largest work being The Moondark Saga, which you can take a look at here: www.amazon.com/dp/B0079BV1X8
Don spent many years teaching at writers conferences and working with local writers associations, so questions from aspiring writers are naturally welcome.
I picked up the e-publishing process from scratch and am in charge of ebook file formatting, paperback to digital conversion, and all those wonderful things. If you have any questions about that, fire away!
Edit: We're taking a break now, we'll be back at 4pm PST to answer more questions!
Edit 2: We're back! Don will be back to answering questions again as soon as we pour our afternoon beer.
Edit 3: I think we're about done for the night. Don has really enjoyed answering everyone's questions tonight, so we'll probably do this again sometime. Thank you all for truly making my grandfather's day!
Edit 4: Since this got some more questions overnight we'll just let it roll! Ask your questions and Don will answer them as he can.
