Got a really cool surprise from Mr. UPS on Friday afternoon - the galleys of my PB Six O'clock in San Francisco. No, not the galleys with the art (hopefully around the end of July), but the galleys with the text all dropped in and official-looking. Now I just have to go over it with a fine-toothed comb, because catching mistakes is now or never. Thank goodness for proofreaders. I have to admit, when I opened the envelope and saw my name right under the title on the first page I got goosebumps. The kids were stoked to see their names in the dedication. I told them that there is still time to change that part if they act up. Nothing like the threat of pulling their 15 minutes of fame to get them to straighten out.
On this date: In 1989, the Tiananmen Square massacre.
