I just wanted to let everyone know about my exciting new project and to thank Carolina Blogging for the opportunity.
Check out my video for the news and information about the release. We’ll talk more after the video.
I also started writing a series about lost North Carolina amusement parks at ImagiNERDing and Sarah posted links from Carolina Blogging to my articles.
A few months ago, an editor at The History Press, an imprint of Arcadia Publishing, reached out to me about writing a book on North Carolina amusement parks based on the link she discovered on CB.
I was shocked, amazed and excited!
I immediately agreed and began working with the editor on the ideas for the book. After submitting the proposal, the editorial board proposed that I write The Lost Amusement Parks of North Carolina. Based on my initial research, this would encompass 70 or so parks and parallel the growth of parks across the country, from Coney Island to Disneyland to Walt Disney World.
So, follow along on this journey as I go from blog to book at Carolina Blogging and share my successes and whatever else I run across.
All I can say, at this point, is to write about what you love and eventually your dreams will happen!
Do you have any memories or photos of defunct or lost NC amusement parks for the North Carolina book project?
If so, email me at George@ImagiNERDing.com! I would love to hear from you.
