    It's been a pretty intense but rewarding process. At this point I am quite pleased with the way things turned out on my end. Dealing with the publisher has had its ups and downs, but overall it has been a remarkable experience. With regards to anything I would change I would only say that I would have a little more backbone dealing with my publisher, but I have heard that for first books it is not uncommon to roll over just to get your work published. Next time I will be a bit more hard nosed.

    Thanks, it's definitely not preachy! I hate preachy.

    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    Congratulations!
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    Boy I'm humbled by all the kind words and well-wishes. I've been on this board for over ten years and while I post infrequently and sometimes too snarkily for some posters tastes, I've always considered it a caring, kind on-line community/family who have always made me feel welcome. So, of course it was natural that I wanted to share my good news with you all. I'm glad I did.

    I'm resurrecting this thread to say I got it today from Amazon and read the first chapter. Enjoying it - your family sounds like a hoot.
