Despite all the book signing and promotion work, I’m close to finishing the first draft of my newest WIP, a humor book about Indiana history. (My space opera story is “cooling”, so I can run through the next draft with a more objective eye.) I figure there will be lots of Hoosier books published for the bicentennial, but maybe not a lot of humor books.
My book, which still doesn’t have a real working title, is divided up in two ways: by time periods and subjects. There will be sections on pre-state history, becoming a state, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War, for example. Some subjects include weather, state symbols, famous Hoosiers, transportation, sports, crime, and so on.
It’ll be funny. I promise.
What do you think? What other subjects related to the Hoosier state and its history should be covered in the book? Preferably something I can make fun of, but what the heck—I’ve already covered the Klan and serial killers.
