What's the Latest with the Book?

Last week I finished reading/correcting the final proof--a.k.a. the "design proof" of BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING. The pages were laid out just like they will look when the book is published--with sidebars and a bit of artwork too.

Two members of my writing group, Inkspired, also proofed it and the publisher had two more proofreaders go through it. The editor at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers International) also read through the book one more time. I also double-checked the medical information with my medical consultant for the book.

My hope and prayer is for the book to be clean, clean, clean. No typos. The book now goes to print, with an August 1st release date. This has been a long, long process--almost two years.

Another fun note: Linda, one of my writing comrades, googled the title of my book and found it is available for pre-order on and

Just another step in the publishing process!

Lots of people are mentioning how excited they are to see the book show its face on the shelf. I've even got a writer-friend in the U.K. who wants to send the picture of his brood, with him and his wife in their forties. Hope you're continuing to recover.
