The book is out, as you probably noticed from the Home page, and available for purchase at Amazon. There is a print version (paperback) and Kindle version (pre-order now, available August 26).

The book is timely, since it arrives just about 100 years after the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the vote.

It's a big moment for me. I started it over a year ago and worked on it ever since. I had a "final" (I hate to use that word) manuscript by about July 1 this year. Then I spent six weeks, with a lot of terrific help, in getting it into publishable shape. (See my previous posts.) But when it happened, it was fast. I uploaded to Amazon about 7:00 pm 8/19, and it was published on Amazon about 2:00 pm 8/20. Compare that to traditional publishers, who often take 9-14 months from when a final manuscript is submitted. So, I am happy with the speed of the process and the quality of the result. I hope readers like it too!

Please vote, if you haven't done so yet. The suffragists in my book Summer Suffragists worked for women's right to vote for many years. Judith Smith worked for 50 years or more, until she was 100 year


Just a quick shout-out for Buttonwood Books in Cohasset, which is carrying my book. They have a great selection, including a section for local authors, and they are responsive. Check them out!
