I am pleased to say that my first book is finally "published." Although Deseret Book isn't releasing their digital version until June 24, based on the feedback I got on this blog almost a year ago, I got permission to publish 200 print copies for friends and family on lulu.com (no 190 based on sales in the last day). The lulu version is available here.
Lest you think I've been working away at a book during full time classes at Penn last semester, my stint in Libya in January and February, or while caring for a newborn the last month, this book has been in process for perhaps eight years. I worked on it 15-30 minutes a day for a few years, then on and off for three based on my editor's feedback, and have only been tinkering over the last six months in the final pre-publication phase. But it's done, finally.
Hope you enjoy! Please let me know what you think!
