As the launch date of my book approaches...

I am reminded what barriers I had to overcome to get this book out. I was fortunate to find the right publisher.

But when it comes to standing up to a profession that has become a seething wall of egotists, it isn't easy, to say the least. Books such as this one have a very hard time seeing the light of day. I had pulled it off in 2005, and I have done it again. That a woman gets to be that strong voice is nothing short of a miracle.

It has not been easy for more reasons that can actually make sense, but it didn't stop me. It was not an easy goal or a convenient time. It was not as if I had support or connections.

I did it all the same.

If I could pull this off, creating an alternative is a piece of cake in comparison. There is no excuse not to do it...
