I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since Aunt Phil’s Trunk Volume One made its debut in Anchorage. I remember carrying a proof of the book to gift shops and bookstores in December 2005 to see if anyone wanted to stock my Alaska history first-ever book on their shelves.
To my amazement, just about every shop placed orders for the summer season. They thought my book would be a hit with Alaskans and tourists, men and women, and young and old readers alike.
It looks like they were right. Thousands of copies of Aunt Phil’s Trunk books have flown off store shelves across the state during these past 10 years. Many teachers are using the series in public, charter and home schools in Alaska, too.
I think 2016 means it’s time to broaden the range for sharing Alaska’s history – which brings me to some exciting news to begin the next decade of Aunt Phil’s Trunk.
Several top reviewers now are reading the books in my Alaska history series and soon will be posting their reviews on Amazon. A few bloggers want to interview me and get the word out about the series, too.
So after more than a decade of researching, writing and working to get the series into the hands of history buffs across Alaska, I am beyond excited to see Aunt Phil’s (and my) work spread to the rest of the world.
You can help spread the word, too.
