Dear Charlotte Book, Coming Soon!

Today I finished the first draft of my first book! I've been trying to write this for years, but only recently did I find the right format to carry it all the way. The title is Dear Charlotte: A Life of Self-Improvement. It's written as a series of letters to my friend Charlotte, who gave me my first self-help book when I was 14 years old. While these letters weren't actually written at the time that they're dated, the stories in them are real and describe my 15-year journey through self-improvement—for better or for worse. It comprises 80 letters so far, chronicling nearly the same number of human behavioral experiments, mediated by popular self-help books (like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People), self-help practices (like meditation), and many of my own unique approaches. It's got nearly 40,000 words so far, which will probably amount to 200 pages. I will be posting preview excerpts soon, but for now, I just wanted to share this milestone with you.
