A DAY IN A FRENCH LIFE... by Kristin Espinasse
Last November, I began a personal challenge to "Publish a Book in 21 days"! In order to complete the ambitious project, I asked readers to help edit three stories three times per week. Though I failed to meet the publishing deadline, the book was compiled in 21 days (it took an extra two weeks to see it online at Amazon). As painful as the process was (!!!), I reached a goal, one that had been swept back into the corner along with other neglected dreams.
The current book project is coming together. On Monday, we made it to the one-third mark! But the pace is slackening today, with only one story to edit. It is titled "ravissant". If you like, you can proofread it here.
