I've had this notion for years that I'd write a book about my adventures as a patient. Over the past year, I thought about it more than usual, and boom- a book deal fell into my lap! It's a small press- Tell Me Press- doing interesting books. My book, which I've been secretly working on since fall of 2008, is slated to come out in late 2010. It's a collection of humorous essays such as "You Can Biopsy When I'm Dead: My 15 Least Favorite Medical Procedures," and "Top 10 Annoying Things to Say to Someone Who's Just Been Diagnosed." I've gathered a few pictures for possible inclusion in the book, ranging from attractive to mildly humiliating. My famous $40 wig will hopefully make it into the photo section. It has been copy-edited (they fixed my typos and grammatical errors- I made a lot so the editors would feel needed), rewritten and is now in the hands of the typist and the graphic artist. Watch for the final product and big reveal Fall 2010.
