OMFG, it's a book!!

Look what arrived by UPS International Express post yesterday!! It's REAL!! Eeeeeee!!!

This is so awesome and exciting! The Rich Tennant cartoons (written especially for my book) are perfect, too! I'm going to see if I can buy a signed print of one or two (he doesn't sell originals).

Next step is to go through this review copy with a fine-tooth comb, and send any factual / typo errors in within a month, to be corrected in the first reprint. I've already spotted a few minor mistakes, damn, which slipped through the editing process, but I guess that was inevitable!

I wanna do this again - it's addictive!

ETA : It is out in bookshops in the States & Canada now, as well as online shops (Amazon.com etc etc). I'm not sure, but I think it might be available in Australian & UK bookshops too, in the near future.

  1. Yay! You are SOOOO clever. Well done you. When do we get to go into a bookshop, ask for Word Searches for Dummies and bask in your reflected glory with "I know the author".

    Woo Hoo!

  7. I'll be buying my copy later today and save on shipping! My Barnes & Noble account allowed me to see many more pages than Amazon has to view. Love your dedication to your hubby & Dad!
