Happening now


Turned in the full draft of the book I ghostwrote for the 97 year old doctor, whose name is Ellamae.

Hired a copyeditor slash fact checker who is also going to format my endnotes.

Hired a cover designer. Got clear on a cover direction.

Wrote the jacket copy, front cover, back cover, inside flaps.

Rewrote the jacket copy based on my writer friend urging me to put on a marketing hat and use some over the top superlative adjectives, like "riveting" and "an extraordinary life."

Decided on a publisher.

Dreamed last night about Ellamae. She was holding the finished book in her hands.

Still much to do but it's happening.

In some other dimension, it's already happened.
