Mark Your Calendars

My next book is coming out, in exactly one week. One. Week. That’s seven days. And since I’m posting this so late in the evening, many of you won’t read it until tomorrow, making that LESS than a week. Exciting stuff, I know. So at the mark of the one week countdown, I am thrilled…
