I'm not sure how I did it, but I finished a book that my late wife wanted me to publish. She wrote everything on paper so I had to type it into word, find photos, proof read, write a forward, etc. Eventually I would like to publish it. It will be a minor miracle since this will probably be the only thing I will ever publish. I considered this a labor of love and a mission. That's what motivated me to finish the project.

Sounds like a great project! One potential thing to look into before publishing: were you her only heir, or if not did she specifically will the copyright of her work to you?

Man, that's really good of you, and something I'd hope my own husband would attempt in the event of my passing. I wish you the best of luck.

Good point! I'm her only heir.

I had a chance to talk with Susan at length about her wishes. Of course I know that this is only the beginning but I would like to get this out to the public.

I would use the fact that the book is posthumous in your promotional materials. Do wander around the site. Lots of good ideas here. (But do understand, not everyone here is a professional.)
