That's right. Time flies! The hardcover edition was officially published on February 23, 2017 and the softcover edition came out the next day, February 24, 2017.
The labor and delivery wasn't that difficult, as I recall. I was well taken care of by my book midwife, Katie at The Garden of Words and her capable staff. And even before that, my book and I were tended to by editor Deb Wiley who, in the kindest way possible, helped me shed many commas before the book was published.
In fact, I have bags, and bags, and bags of commas that Deb took out, and so I try to use them, as you can see, wherever I can, before they get stale, or rot, or worse, morph into semi-colons, or flip-upside down and become, if you can believe it, or not, apostrophes.
I am also saving a few of the commas for my second book.
