My debut, LEARNING TO SWEAR IN AMERICA, comes out today, and I've already seen a couple photos of it in the wild.  :love5 :cloud9

For anybody who needs a little encouragement, it took ten years, six books, and two agents to get here.

 :hb3 My bookstore called to tell me they had it but I'd already left to go out of town  :cry2
I know they'll stock it because the store owner is the one who nominated it for Indie Next. :love5
