Tomorrow’s the big day! I’ll be reading “Meet Christian Tompta” at 11am, and bringing coloring pages and bookmarks to design for the kiddos. Nothing better than reading and shopping for books on a rainy weekend, so come on out. Check out Murphy’s if you haven’t been there yet, and if you haven’t seen the interview I did with Greg Murphy, I’m sharing the Facebook link here again: https://www.facebook.com/murphysusedbooks/videos/238507343421427/

 

Releasing a Book

Each book is like a baby,

created, born, and attended

through rewrites, edits, and proofs.

Baby grows into childhood;

every new version improving,

then adding input from outsiders.

Childhood turns into adulthood…

I putz with the manuscript

until it’s time to let it fly,

even if I’m not ready.

Hello Friends!
