Oh, honey. Your first novel!
George McFly: Like I've always told you, you put your mind to it, you can accomplish *anything*.
I think my son summed it up best with this smile:
I hold in my hands a real book that actual trees had to die for. It feels good.
Now I just have to check to see I didn't misspell the names of my main characters.
Fingers crossed we can get this out before Christmas.
