Really appreciate the detail & structure of this article. My wife really likes to read about the AT & people's adventures on it. In fact, we nearly bought a home/hostel along it (wound upstate NY instead). She doesn't read Kindle, so I'm inclined to buy the paperback version of your book for her. The way which you present he publishing process suggests that your book is also well-written & worth the effort & cost.
Thanks & congrats on its success.
