This week has been great, as I was able to get most of the corrections in to my editor at Ten Speed as well as finish my final teaching cycle at Johnson & Wales for the year--even sent in the grades yesterday. So next week I should be able to comb through the last of the responses from all the testers and make the final tweaks. Still have to work up a few sidebars and photo captions, as well as calculate all the bakers percentages and write the acknowledgements page--this could take days considering all the people I need to thank-- and then we'll have one final read-through of the final pages (I think this used to be called the galleys though now we just call it the final pages), but we're so close to the end I can almost taste it.
Just received a link to a fun blog from Patricia Kline, who came to my talk in SF last month. Check it out:
Also, I was a guest today on Wisconsin Public Radio's show, Here on Earth, along with Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco) and Brian Spangler (Apizza Scholls)--a fun hour all about pizza. You should be able to access a podcast via their archives in a few days at www.wpr.org If you heard it, let me know at email@example.com
Okay, back to work (actually, I'm going to sleep). Will be judging a biscuit contest early on Saturday morning at the Matthews Farmers Market--who knows, may discover yet another new recipe!!
More next week!
