book_cover-blogI have it in my hands!  A copy of First ClassAnd rumor has it, Amazon has already shipped a few.  It is amazing to think I conducted the first interview for this book in 2006.  One of my first interview requests was a disaster.  It stopped me (momentarily) from pursuing the book. I wrote to a well known Dunbar graduate, a professor and author Adelaide Cromwell, requesting an interview.  Apparently my inquiry letter did not live up to her standards. She retuned my letter corrected in red pen. Ouch! It honestly derailed me for a few weeks. Were all Dunbar graduates going to school me?  After I pieced my ego back together I continued on and remembered a valuable lesson she taught me. PROOFREAD! For the record, Professor Cromwell and I later had two lovely conversations.
