It wasn’t just a dream

20140405_094154-1I’m proud and excited to finally announce that my book is a reality! I have a box full of actual books that I can hold. I started the research and writing way back in 2008 and after about five years I had a finished project to shop around to publishers. Once the University Press of Florida accepted the book, the year long slog through the publishing process began. After all this time, it’s hard to believe that this project has reached its goal. The feeling I get from holding my finished work is hard to put into words.

But it’s not all over yet. The next adventure is now launching: promoting the book. I have a few events lined up where I’ll be talking about the book and signing copies. I’m just waiting for the arrangements to be finalized before announcing the details. The first event will be the end of this month and couple of other events are scheduled for May. I hope to see you folks out there!
