I wrote a book.
Okay, to be more exact, I spent a good portion of the summer converting two separate blogs into a book manuscript and securing a publisher. These past two weeks I subjected that manuscript to an intense process of continual re-writing, revision, proofing, correcting and polishing until … well, until the sight of my own writing made me want to barf into a trash can, if you must know.
The result, sometime later this autumn, will be my first book. The title is THE OPERA ZOO: SINGERS, COMPOSERS AND OTHER PRIMATES. The publisher is Kendall Hunt, a firm in Dubuque Iowa that customarily publishes textbooks written by college professors.
