This strikes me as an auspicious time to launch my blog for "Accordion Dreams: A Journey into Cajun and Creole Music." Welcome!
In the past couple of weeks, I've passed a few milestones. The fall-winter catalog from my publisher, the University Press of Mississippi, turned up in my mailbox. There we were on page 3: me and my accordion, along with a synopsis for the book. The online booksellers now list "Accordion Dreams" for sale. Bookstore signings are in the works.
And I still haven't seen the final page proofs. Or the cover!
It's been quite a journey, this path to publication, with seven months to go. I'll be offering updates and other assorted reflections here. Maybe a monthly contest, with some some free stuff as prizes. You never know. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
