I’d love to see you at any of these and I’d appreciate you passing this along to people you know who might be interested either electronically (email, Twitter, etc) or the old fashioned way (actually talking to humans).
Gratefully yours, JB

I wanted to reach out to those of you who generously pre-ordered my book, “The Elephant in the Room.” Since I began this process with Inkshares, I have learned a lot about the world of publishing and the time it takes to get any book, let alone a unique one like mine, out into the world.
When you supportively pre-ordered the book months ago, I’m sure you expected it to arrive in a reasonable amount of time. I was admittedly naïve about what a reasonable amount of time was to design, edit and proof a book, and get it into bookstores. Working with the talented, enthusiastic designers and editors at Inkshares and Girl Friday has been very gratifying and only made my art/storybook better.
The release date is now mid-March, even though we hope to get your advance copies to you a bit sooner. There will be some events, art shows, etc. to celebrate the release and I’d love to see you there so I can thank you in person.
I am very proud and excited to share the book with you all. And, again, I apologize if you expected it sooner and hope it will be
