Sent in the final final version of my book. 119,794 words, 886 endnotes. It's ginormous. (I was supposed to write a short book of about 75k words. I also cut out 30k words). I wrote about 30k words of notes for each of the 18 chapters. #AmWriting #TeamRhetoric
I imagine all of this is pretty typical for an academic book. Just wanted to give the behind the scenes deets for non-academic folks.
I've written the book in a public scholarship voice (like my other public writing) because I want everyone to be able to read it, not just academics.

I don't know what it will cost yet, but my publisher has promised to keep the cost low so that it will be affordable.
I'll post the cover & pre-order link when it's available (should be soon). Look for Demagogue for President: The Rhetorical Genius of Donald Trump to be out in February or March 2020.
This is the dedication, if you want to know my mood:

In gratitude, I dedicate this book to the journalists who did their best to try to hold Trump accountable for his words and actions.
