Getting closer folks, the pictures are done the text is being corrected, I am looking at possible front and back covers and adding captions to all of the pictures. There a currently 25 sketches of tricky presentations but I may add a few more of my favorites. These are some that I have used, then modified in many of the tournaments that I have set. The text has gotten longer because the longer I think about this book, the more I remember things that I haven't added. I have a great Editor in Jeff Meloy and photographer in CA Maedgen. Also, I have asked some of my colleagues who are great setters to comment about certain things that I have mentioned in my book. I will be researching printers to do that work for me. I am not looking for the cheapest or most expensive price but I do want the best.

Ken,

I am so sorry to hear about Connie. I have a friend that is going through the exact same thing. He is like a brother to me and we have been friends since the 8th grade. Don't worry about your book. You will get one of the first ones. I am having a run of fifty hardback copies and I will save one for you. Don't worry about buying one, I have already got you on my list that I will be giving these to.

Mike

Great news,

Jeff just sent me the final draft. All I need to do now is get it printed. At last, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was wrong about the page count. There is almost 150 pages not 200 like, I mentioned last time. I guess I can put some of my poetry that me and and a bottle of Tequila Conspired together to write. What do you think? :lol: Me neither
