Fifty Canadians Who Changed the World

Hurrah! Let the bells ring out for Fifty Canadians Who Changed the World. Today I sent the final, edited typescript to the managing editor at HarperCollins Canada. Substantive edit: done. Copy edit: done. Word count: 88,527.  Publication date: this September. At left, a photo of Our Hero that evokes his jubilation. Otherwise, it has nothing to do with the forthcoming book. (For more on the photo, pick up the April-May issue of Canada’s History magazine and refer to an article called “Return to Rae Strait.”) [Photo credit: Sheena Fraser McGoogan].

    Congratulations. As someone who took 34 years to get my largest book published and two gruelling years on the substantial and copy edit of it, I know you must be almost as exhausted as exhilarated. I also know what a great achievement it is. I look forward to reading it.
