Chicken Ranch report no. 59: The deed is done

I thought this project would be a sprint when I started, but it turned out to be a quadruple-marathon. There were many, many times I thought this Chicken Ranch book was my own, personal Sisyphean stone, but now the finish line is really, truly in sight.

Today I turned in the final manuscript and photo captions to my editor at the History Press. That doesn't mean I'm finished--there are ongoing title discussions being discussed, and I have no doubt there are endless editorial notes and revision requests in my future, but the summit has been crested. It's all downhill from here on out.
