I was lying in bed last night, thinking about my blogs (I have multiple blogs! How did that happen?), when it suddenly occurred to me that I'd neglected to mention a little something to you. After making you sit through revision after revision, and deadline after deadline, I forgot to tell you that my book was finally published! Minor detail.
It was released on October 9 and it's in the bookstores now. The e-book version is also for sale on iTunes. The reviews have been good, for which I'm very grateful, and it was a thrill to see my name in the New York Times Book Review.
But I'd have to say that the feedback that floored me the most was this Speak Well, Read Well blog entry that described how a terrific teacher/speech therapist used the book in her classroom. When the revisions and deadlines are over, and publication day is already a distant memory, it's strange--and wonderful--that to think that my book has this life of its own, thanks to an inspired teacher and her students. Now, that makes me grateful.
