In other news, I've found someone to do a foreword for the upcoming book - Suzanne W. Simard, professor at the University of British Columbia's Forest Sciences Department. I'll be sending materials off to her on Monday or Tuesday.
Got the manuscript back from my editor, and am correcting all those comma and dash mistakes. I'll be sending it back to her for the second edit early next week as well.
Other than that, it seems that winter has been a non-event here, unlike in other parts of the country. In spite of that, I intend to plant a few junipers in the beds around the house, since they're the only things that seem to survive the odds. That and garlic and chives in the window will be about it for me this Spring.
