Thoughts on the cover design? I did it myself, so of course I'm going to be unsure about it until I get some solid validating feedback. I'm having an editor look over the manuscript now, so hopefully they can help me polish it up before I put it out there in the world.
I've had some of my kids--who've grown up around Danny and heard these stories for years--read the manuscript, occasionally one will ask, "Wait. Did that really happen?" It strikes me just how crazy some of our experiences with Danny really are. It certainly felt crazy at the time, but after you tell the story for so long I guess it loses some of it's shock factor. A lot of the stories I write about in the book are just so ridiculous, they HAVE to be real. I can't make this stuff up, folks. My imagination is not that... twisted?
Anyway, I hope you like it. I wrote my book to help families who are struggling to raise kids with special needs to see the bigger picture. My hope is that they'll be able to recognize the refining process for what it is and maybe even embrace it... eventually.
