Amazon is finally shipping the book out! :)
Mine shipped today (I just *had* to order my own first book from Amazon, naturally :) ) after a technical glitch in Amazon's system prevented orders being sent for a couple of weeks. I am SO glad to have this glitch worked out!! If you ordered, but have been waiting, please check your order status! It may be shipping now!! :)
Thanks again, for all of your support, to everyone (or ANYone!!) reading here! I truly, truly appreciate it!!!
