Frabjous day! My book is finally released! Until early December, my book is on sale for the Amazon Kindle for a special price for those who want to check it out! The softcover edition will be available soon, and So Young will be available in the rest of the e-book store (iBooks, Nook, etc.) in a few weeks as well! Please, spread the word, and let me know if you have any questions or comments!
This past week, my mom was reviewing the final draft of my book. I asked her to look for any typos or other obvious issues, and she has done a fine job of it. Hopefully I will be able to make all the changes this week and get the book into production. During this review process, however, something happened to my mother that surprised me but shouldn’t have: reading the book affected her so much that one evening I found her in tears.
My colleague Leslie who writes The R.A. Academe on CreakyJoints, recently spoke about the NFL going pink for breast cancer, asking why someone can’t go blue for arthritis. I had the same exact conversation with my fiancée when I saw the pink penalty flags and towels in the NFL. I wondered why arthritis is doomed to the same old fundraisers again and again, with the number one dud, the infamous walk.
