But wait! There’s more.
A self-aggrandizing moment.
You may not know this, but for a year I blogged on my own on the topic of infectious diseases.
I had self-published those early essays in a volume and readers gave it good reviews: 4.5 Stars on Amazon and a 3.89 on Goodreads, but they complained about the lack of copy editing. Go figure.
No longer. Bitingduck press is my publisher and has collected, edited, and organized the first year’s Rubor, Dolor, Calor, Tumor blog entries, now available on Kindle for a mere $5.99. Other versions, including a paperback, to follow in about 10 days. It should be 99% typo free.
