25 days to go! I got to see and hold my novel THE HANDBOOK FOR LIGHTNING STRIKE SURVIVORS today. Nothing can make this any more real!It's a beautiful book: Everything about it, from the smart electric jacket to the book itself, key-lime green and cantaloupe orange. I am elated. It's times like this that I think, "Wow! Is this really happening? Did I publish a book?" The proof is in the pudding. In this case, the spine.
