DC Madam book update


We're in the home stretch here folks. The cover design is nearly in place with back cover copy and design close to completion. This has been a long road. I'm certain that the book will never be quite to my satisfaction. If there are future editions count on them being revised extensively with additional materials from the case/event. Making a book has been more direct than I assumed it would be, but the effort is extraordinary in meeting some reasonable level of quality and internal consistency, and on all fronts. This comes down to page formatting, playing serif off of sans serif fonts, revising, editing, design, ISBN registration, spell-checking, everything. Writing a book was nagging at me ever since I graduated from college along with the desire to chronicle an historic event. Be careful what you wish for. I don't see a release of any later than April. Buckle-up. This is going to be quite a ride, even for participants in the event.
