Well, everyone, I am just about there with the book. I am currently restructuring it to be more of a memoir on the advice of the University of Akron Press. I have given myself (and The Press) a deadline of December 1st. I always work better with a deadline.
I am quite excited that it should be published in the Spring of 2014. It certainly has been a long haul but my other always said that anything worth having is worth working for. Guess she was right! :-)
