Book Update

The BECB (the big evolution/creatio book) has been all-consuming lately. I’ve been struggling to meet my April 1 (no foolin!) deadline, which led me to spend virtually every waking moment last week either in the classroom, grading papers, or writing. My worry wasn’t so much finishing the manuscript on time, since it is very nearly finished now, but finishing with enough time left over to send it out for feedback and comments. As it happens, though, late last week my editor contacted me and told me that for various reasons they wanted to push the deadline back to May 1 instead of April 1. Suddenly I have an extra month! That means it’s time for some blogging…

    To quote Doug Adams: “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as the rush by.”
    To quote the Phytophactor: “It can’t be a book on evolution if it doesn’t take long enough to write that evolution can occur.”

    Yeah, but are you going to hold another contest for the book title?
