I turned a half century old today, a day also noted as the birthday of Albert Einstein and sometimes referred to as Pi day (3.14).
I received an email this morning from my editor, Michelle, for my book 100 Characters From the Bible. She sent me the author's questionairre from Reader's Digest Books. It's 5 pages and 12 questions. According to the instructions, the "information you provide will serve as a guide for writing promotional copy and in planning the publicity and sales of the book." Among the questions are such things as whether I'd be interested in doing interviews on TV or radio and asking me to provide "6 to 10" questions for the interviewer. I suppose I could do that.

The writing on my book 100 Characters From the Bible is mostly done, aside from a few minor corrections to make; I'm waiting to hear back from my friend who reads my work and corrects my faults; once she's done that, then I'll create the final draft and send it off to the publisher--I'm hoping by the end of this week. My only difficulty has been in locating art showing Aquila and Priscilla. I need to recommend art for each of the 100 bios. I've had little trouble with the other 98 biographies, but these last two have been surprisingly hard.
