The upshot of my conference with editor Jason Davis and designer Kirk Lamb is that we are pushing the release date for the book to mid September. I have a lot more to write! The good news is this means the book will have 50 additional pages and we think it really will be the best it can be. I really appreciate the suggestions you have been sending in! Lots of great ideas. I am working hard to get all your questions answered.

Today is our last day at the beach. I REALLY don’t want to go back to real life. I love being here, in the cool sea air, listening to the waves and pretending to be an author. Julian has been super patient. It’s not terribly exciting to be a teen ager hanging out with only your mom, but he’s being a good sport. He knows how much it means to me. He will be going to college in a year and who knows when I’ll get this kind of time with him again? His senior year starts in 8 days. How did that happen? His whole high school career flew by me. Oh I better not get started on that or I’ll be a weepy mess for the rest of the day.

I hope the new release date isn’t a problem for those of you who are interested in getting the book. I promise it will be worth the wait.
More soon!
xxoo,
Pat
