Hi everybody.

I am new from Chicago.

I am currently working on a book to show the hard call and struggles faced in this field as well as the more interesting/entertaining calls we get. If anyone if willing to share their stories with me that would be greatly appreciated. Please reach out to me if you want to help out or if you just need to talk.

Thanks

Mary

Welcome.

What's in it for us?  What's the incentive to let you profit from our stories?

 

I honestly don't know if anything will come from writing this so I can not guarantee anything, but if it were to ever be published I would share any profits with anyone who contributed.

I don't have any stories for you, unless you're interested in a fire call that's still embarrassing for me. I am curious how you are planning on publishing it though. Self-publish? E-book form? Planning on doing any cover art or illustrations inside?

That's perfectly fine. I am hoping to get interest from publishers and if that fails I'm going to try to self publish. Cover art and hopefully some other illustrations will be involved eventually.

You do understand that you're not the first person to come here looking for material to write a book, right?  You do understand the skepticism offered to anyone coming here looking to profit off of our stories and experiences, right?

I do understand and I don't care if any profit is made from this. I just want to write it. If any profit is gained I would not keep any of it.

I've been in the field and out of the field for over 20 years.  I have enough stories for 2-3 books.  Why should those of us with this many stories that are our own give you ours?  I'm just curious.  

But I do wish you the best.  

If you do write this and make it a e-book make sure you don't price it too high.
