It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my upcoming book and there’s been a lot happening so I thought I’d share an update.
The bad news is that the release date is going to be a little later than expected. It was originally scheduled for release on April 1st, but we’ve had a few minor delays along the way and a final delay because I spent a little more time than expected editing and approving the final manuscript. The good news is that I think the delay was worth it. I spent a lot of time reviewing the index. I know – not the most exciting thing, but I wanted to be sure it was going to be user-friendly and helpful, and I think it really will be now.
The official release date is now May 1st from Reedy Press.
There was also a small change to the title of the book, which you can see on the cover:
If you saw the cover before and aren’t noticing a difference I don’t blame you – it’s a small one. There’s a apostrophe added to the end of “kids” now. It’s a small thing, but I’m happier with it now!
I’m working on getting in touch with local bookstores and gift shops about carrying the book, contacting local media about promoting it, and scheduling some events for when the book comes out. I’ll be posting information about all those things in the near future so you know where you can get a copy and where and when I’ll be making appearances.
I’m SO excited to get the book out there and see what people think. I spent a LOT of time and energy on it and I’m really happy with how it turned out so I hope you are too!
