Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship by Tom Ryan is published by William Morrow. It tells the story of my adventures with Atticus M. Finch, a little dog of some distinction. You can also find our column in the NorthCountry News.

Last Chance

I'm currently going through the manuscript for Following Atticus for the last time before it goes back to the publishers tomorrow. This is not heavy editing. That's been done for a while. But as the letter from HarperCollins directed: "Your changes should be restricted to errors of fact, misspellings, and/or typographical errors."

Once it arrives back in New York it will go through another round of copy editing and the next I'll see of it as one of the advanced reader copies that will come out in late April or early May. Advanced readers are those copies sent off to book stores and media outlets around the country to (hopefully) create buzz before the hardcover comes out in September.
