Hey all! This is Sheri. I'm getting reports that the first books are arriving from Amazon Books today! This photo came from my friend Kristy. She witnessed the excitement on my face the second that I saw the book had become available on Amazon. Ten seconds later she announced, "Just bought my copy!"
Thanks Kristy. You are a keeper, my friend. I love hearing from you all. My copies won't arrive until next week but, I bought in bulk. Let us know if you don't use Amazon because we can get you your copy if you are patient.
