The manuscript is currently in the hands of Dr. G, who is making final medical and personal edits. (You don’t want to make mistakes if you’re a heart surgeon. You also don’t want to make mistakes when you write a book with one!)
After she finishes, November 1, the manuscript goes to the publisher for final design and layout, and then we roll it out to the public when the calendar turns over to 2017.
I’ve mentioned before how difficult it is to fit a book project in the schedule of a heart surgeon. Well, that’s been made even a bit tougher because, in September Dr. Guleserian accepted a position at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami (the former Miami Children’s Hospital.) So in between edits, she’s been leaving one job, packing up a house, moving, and starting over in a new city.
Which is to say, we appreciate your patience as we get this project done. And, for a bit of a preview, a mock-up of the cover is below. Let me know what you think.
And thanks, again, for your patience.
