New Book in the Works!

Here we are already in 2022!  Covid put a downright stop to any opportunities to get out and promote “Grandma’s Attic”. But last year, we were able to do a book signing/reading at the Veteran’s Home in Hastings, MN. It was a joy and an honor to talk to those men who so related to the book because they were there! They were able to essentially verify the facts in the book and validity of the story. It was so great to see them loving this book!

Because of Covid, and admittedly some other more positive things, like new hobbies, time to write and let’s face it, the motivation to write, has been quite hard to come by. Until about a month ago. I had a dream and it set off a story in my head, nudging me to write it and expand it. So I have! A bit different genre than the last book, but still in the military backdrop. My last book took over a year to write and even more to edit and get it published, so I can’t say it’s in sight yet, but it sure feels really good to be writing again. I realize how much writing is a part of me, and I can’t wait to share my next “baby” with you when the time comes!

Thank you all for your continuing support!



It’s right around the corner!

Pre-orders will start on Monday!  Just in time for Christmas shopping!

Do you have someone on your Christmas list that is a bookworm? Likes WWII stories? A history buff?

“Grandma’s Attic” would be a great addition to their library!

Hello to all Shane Dietrich readers!


I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Notebook Publishing, run by Hayley Paige, to publish my book, “Grandma’s Attic“.  I have worked with their cover design team over the last few weeks and the cover is ready to be revealed this coming Monday, November 4.  I’ve also started working with their editing team and I’m excited for that process as well. The entire team has been warm and welcoming and have treated me like family while also being professional.

I’m very eager for the next stage, which will be pre-orders, coming in November sometime. I will keep you updated. Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

It’s nice that you came to visit!  I’ve finally got this website up and open, which has been quite an undertaking for a person with not much technical knowledge. This is also the person who has written his first book and started two more…on his phone!
