We are quite literally in the home stretch of work on the @newyorkrockandrollexplorer book, and sometimes the writing and research goes smoothly, and sometimes, as it has with the chapter I've been working on this morning, it's anything but smooth, the facts fuzzy or hard to come by and the narrative difficult to coalesce. But then something clicks, and in the immortal words of @teenagefanclubofficial, everything flows. What you see here is but a small fraction of the materials I've used for research in the co-creation of this book. I've made numerous trips to libraries, read a hundred different ebooks and a thousand other books, studied microfilm of old newspapers and telephone books, interviewed loads of fascinating people, and wracked my feeble brain trying to make my work...well, work. Deadline is August 1, and we're going to get there, and then you're going to buy the book next June, and then we'll do another in maybe Los Angeles or the Bay Area or London or somewhere else. My partner and I have put in so much effort, and I really think it's paying off. Hope you love it. Okay, now back to work.
