I've done some work for the society, but having a book with my name on it would be sort of concrete evidence that I had done something that might last beyond my time here.

    I appreciate everyone's encouragement and advice. Time will tell how it goes
    Dude there is nothing the matter with a healthy dose of ego. Sounds like you know what you want to do and that's more than half the battle in an endeavor like this. Put the time in and you'll have a book.

    Go for it, and if you decide to go the self publishing route and need a hand with anything, feel free to pick my brain. I know some good editors and cover designers.
