About the Book Release

On Saturday evening, April 15, 2023, Rosearl J. West, along with her husband “Chip” West, and I celebrated the successful pre-release uploading of her independently published memoir, Reflections: My Journey on Arunah, to Amazon KDP with a toast around her kitchen table. It was the culmination of our own 81/2-week “journey” to transform her work from a double-spaced, illustrated 81/2 x 11-inch manuscript into the final 6 x 9-inch, 1.15-line-spaced, printed book you see pictured above. [There will be more to come concerning this publication journey, in a separate post.] Rosearl and I also enjoyed a celebration luncheon at The Double-T diner, a storied Baltimore landmark in its own right.

In the coming months, there will be more posts, both here on and on Rosearl Julian West’s website, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

For now, BUY THIS BOOK – and READ It!
