I know that some of you reading this are convinced that humans are a myth, but I am here to state that they do actually exist.

-- The Humans by Matt Haig. My friend, the exuberant literary agent Fiona Kenhole, recommended this to me. It's not the kind of thing I would have picked up on my own and it took me a while to get into it because I found the tone a little too-cute-by-half (humor is hard). But once I got used to the premise and into the story, I decided I like it a lot.

NOTE: Thanks for your patience! I was slow getting my book beginning up because my law firm, Dumas Law Group, is hosting a workshop today for counselors who work with male survivors of childhood sex abuse. We've been busy this week getting ready.
