    Thank you for the suggestions and the encouragement, Julie. I like the small change you made to my hook, as it conveys all of the necessary information in a smaller, more concise package. As far as leaving my classroom behind someday if I could make it as a full-time writer, I don’t know if I would, because I love working with my students, but I would almost certainly cut back to part-time and reduce my 150 student load to about 40 so I could write more and grade papers less.

    I have seen the documentary “The Booksellers,” which focuses on the East Coast book trade, and although I live on the West Coast, I know a few of the booksellers featured in the film. The world of antiquarian books is indeed a fascinating one! l look forward to weaving bits and pieces of it into my story. Glad you enjoyed the film.

    Thanks again for the feedback.
