While I had the idea of what the book would be about and even how I wanted it to open, sitting down and preparing to write 85K to 90K words was daunting.

The operative word there... you stay home... out of sight. LOL.

And now thanks to this opportunity will be read by others to hopefully enjoy.(less)
