First let's begin with the notion of blogging, particularly through the Lycos people with whom my website is hosted. It's complicated and not very pleasant to use (terribly clunky really) and it barely supports in any meaningful way my Macintosh OS 9.2 operating system (haven't really tried it over on OSX yet but I'm inclined to think it's yet another anti-Mac thing!).
So, latest update is that I will have the publishers' final edits around about the third week of September for my approval/input. From there it pretty much goes to press and we should see the finished product on store shelves shortly thereafter. I am definitely planning a book release party of some kind, though I have yet to determine when, where or in what format but I'll be sure to keep information updates here.
