Today Is the Official Pub Date for the Book

After six years, my book America’s Romance with the English Garden (Ohio University Press) is now officially published.

Mickeycover7lowresoToday is what the book industry calls the ‘pub date’.

My friend, publicist Lissa Warren in her book The Savvy Author’s Guide to Book Publicity says, “The pub date is the date your book makes its entry into the world.  Think of it as its bar mitzvah, or debutante ball.”

She presents colorful imagery in the comparisons.

I must say that I am just happy that the book is out and available.

Thank you for supporting me during these years of researching and writing the book, a topic which I often covered in posts on this blog.

I intend to spend the next couple of days working in my garden. It’s a way of rewarding myself.
