Today I held my book in my hands for the first time. It is a thing of beauty. The formatting is more elegant than almost any book I’ve seen. The cover is gorgeous — I owe thanks to so many people for that. For everything. Thank you all for being along for the ride for all these years, for your patience and encouragement. And to some of you for help without which the project truly wouldn’t be what it is — or might never have gotten done at all.

I wish I could send free copies to all of you. To the whole world. Unfortunately I lack the means for that. But I’ve kept the prices as low as I reasonably could given the margins, the market, and the work I’ve put in.

My website ( has undergone a complete overhaul, and it links to all the different ways to buy the book.

You can purchase the paperback for $14.95 directly from me or through my Amazon-affiliated sell page. The book is also available from (but my royalty is quite a bit smaller through Amazon than through my sell page).

Or you can buy the eBook for Amazon Kindle or for iPhone, iPad, and other eReaders for $5.99.

If you ordered a signed copy, it’s on the way — should reach you in two or three weeks.

Hard to believe this day is really here. I’m still pinching myself, in a state of semi-shock.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed living and writing it.

Love to all,
