I returned home from a ten-day happy birthday camping trip and found digital author galleys waiting for my review. Today's big decision: how to spell the last name I've been using for the past forty-four years. The first version of the cover had it wrong. NANCY POGUE LATURNER. A savvy friend pointed that out right away (Thanks, Andrew!) and I asked the publisher for a small cap "A." That's when they gave me this lowercase "a" version instead. It looks strange, doesn't it?
Hopelessly addicted to nit-picking, I have repeated my request for a small cap "A," and now I get to chew my fingernails until they reply. As I chomp on down toward my elbows, I ask, "What's in a name?"
