My Book Is Still Not Quite There…

My book was finished – or so I thought. After almost a year of editing work done by two professional editors, it seemed ready for the world.

When I went to actually publish it at Amazon, I paused. I had a very strong feeling that it wasn’t quite right. I spent a few days wondering (agonizing, actually) if it was time to say “SO WHAT!” and just push on.

I also wondered if it was time to toss it in the trash and give up. That idea was quite appealing.

After talking with a few friends, I realized that it was okay to take a deep breath and give myself another 60 days to correct some deficiencies within the text.

In September, I’m giving a talk at the national IANDS conference (sadly, it’s virtual again this year), and I suspect that the book will be done by then. Or I certainly hope so!

What is it about my story that touched your heart? Or even – what is the most memorable part? Here’s the YouTube (13 minutes) if you’d like to see the “short version!”

Thanks so much for any insights that you wish to share.
