I'm set on the hyphen usage. Thanks, all.
Mom's 358 page book is off to India to be typed by flying fingers...I just wasn't getting it done. Too hard. It will be back next week, and I'll be looking for two groups of people who want to volunteer to:
1. Proof-read part or all of Grandpa's Girl.
2. Read a chapter or two and contribute a promotional blurb for the back cover, etc.
The book is an autobiography of the year leading up to her one-year stay in a sanitarium at age seven. It's very sweet, and has lots of folksy details of growing up in South Dakota during WWII. Also poignant and full of life, just like Mom. Brian is drawing the cover; a picture of Mom sitting on her beloved Gpa's lap. (He was also featured in Mom's Cancer.)
Anyone interested? Much obliged.
