Oh Happy Day!

It's official! It's real! I pinched myself and I'm wide awake. It's not a dream! The book is finally on Amazon for pre-order. I have one of those permanent smiles on my face today!
I'm so proud of it.  I'm hoping you all will love it as much as we do. The next milestone will be actually holding the real thing in my hands.

I am so thrilled, and so happy, and so excited… and that's just for me, the consumer! But ditto that for you - I know your book is going to not just fly off the shelves, but there's going to be rocket boosters on them and they well jet off the shelves faster than the speed of sound!

Super, duper, duper, duper congrats!!!!
