Even with all the work I’ve put into this project over the past few years, it’s funny how seeing the cover for the first time can finally make its impending publication a reality. I absolutely love the cover and I hope you do as well. The book is still slated for a spring 2012 release and I expect that it will be available for pre-order some time soon. Thanks to all the wonderful people at the University Press of Kentucky for their continued enthusiasm and support. Click here for more information about the book.
