As of 2018 there is no expected publication date for the book, as I’m still in the interviewing stage and do not yet have a publishing contract. However, I’m querying publishers, and am also considering self-publishing.
**APRIL 2018 UPDATE**
2018 will be the last year I send out invitations to interview for the book. I will send out a “final call” to all interviewees for completed interviews about three months before I close the interview window.
Stay tuned – exciting announcements coming up this year!
