    So...I wrote a book

    Took me two years of my life. The whole experience will be forever linked with Figure Skating because the day I received the first e-mail from an editor inquiring about whether I'd be interested in expanding an article I'd written into book form was the day of the Ladies SP in Vancouver.

    It's due to be released in October. Am going to give up some of my FSU anonymity (my name is Jake, not Max-I know we're all stunned!) to supply a link.

    Congratulations. That's a big accomplishment. I hope it sells gangbusters (however you define gangbusters).

    Congratulations, and well done!

    It must be satisfying to be able to bring together two life passions into a single work like this. Do you feel happy with the end product? Anything you would change now that you're done?

    Congratulations!! That's a terrific achievement. And it sounds like a great book!
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    Wow, so cool! Congrats!

    And for the cost-conscious folks, B&N has a better pre-order price. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/what...=9780829437393
