What I thought might be one of the final edits of my latest ebook turned out to be another phase of enhancement and clarification. Vickie and I discussed my progress yesterday and agreed that “it will be ready when its ready.” She’s real good about subtly, and in her own way, encouraging me to publish the highest quality information I can.

I understand that you may lack this thrill. Probably all you want to do is watch a little TV programming or a movie or two – and with the least amount of trouble. So, let me tell you how to do that.
