My favourite author pic

This is a picture of Brant Ducey, one of my favourite authors from my time at the Press. Also in this picture is my former intern, Andrew; I see his name around town every now and then, although I haven't run into him in person for years.

Brant's book was about his father, John Ducey. It was well written and lovingly researched, and Brant himself was a joy to work with. If only all book projects were so easy!

I believe this photo was taken after Brant's book launch. That was a long, fun day. I still refer to this project when I teach book editing, particularly with respect to raising interest off the book page and tying in with local daytime TV opportunities. Brant was an ace. Too bad more authors aren't like him.
