My book is finally here--printed and bound and finished. And though they changed the color of the text (which I hate). There is, at long last a book.
Being in a festive mood, I sent out a link to a bunch of my friends. And, well, I just know some really great people all of whom jumped on Amazon and ordered the book, propelling me on an Amazon ranking rampage all the way up to 5,634. Ah the pathetic things that make authors happy.
