This is a lot like being eight months pregnant! You know the baby's coming but the wait is excruciating! I am thrilled to be a part of this project, to see my story on pages, to see the photos. My copy of the book arrived yesterday and it was a glorious feeling to see all the pieces become a whole. But the waiting is for it to hit the stores so that I can see how you feel about it.
