In a week, I’ll turn in the final proofs. It’s been more than a year since I first started. The book looks good. In a little over six weeks, it’ll be out. I’ll have my release party from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd. in St. Louis. Lorraine and I are going on line for lederhosen for me to wear at that and other signing events. Things are going really fast.
