Books are in!

My books came in yesterday but I had worked late, came home for an hour and then headed to church so I didn't get a chance to delve into the pile as much as I wanted.

I'm ready to take orders. If you would like a copy of my book please email me directly at and provide your mailing address. Please spell out your name so that I can address it properly....many of you I only know by blogger names and I don't know if that's how you want it written in your copy of my book.

I've decided not to go the credit card route (even with paypal) so if you would be so kind as to send a check or money order made payable to me that will work fine. I'm willing to ship the book prior to receiving your check so don't let that hold you back. The book is also already on Amazon in Kindle form for $13.95 if you prefer that format. If you must use credit card, you can order through either Amazon or directly through my publisher at The books are $17.95 each plus I'm adding 2.05 for shipping for a grand total of $20 even. (This price is good for overseas orders too, I don't want to have to figure out shipping charges for everyone)

Thank you all for your encouragement through this publishing process. I'm happy with the final result and I hope that you will be also!

Jury duty was finished today by 2 pm. The verdict was guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty. It was really a very basic case and didn't require too much anxiety on the jurors part. We were fair and impartial. I wonder how the case was even allowed to come to trial since the defendant was so poorly prepared. He represented himself and didn't understand how a court system worked. It was excruciating watching him make a fool of himself. Even so, I felt badly for him because he was very passionate about his WRONG choice. Oh well. Lesson learned - take a lawyer if they offer you one.

Patty - so exciting! I'm going to do the Kindle route, since I have one and am stocking up with books to take on a trip.

you must be so proud!!!

Wow! That's a lot of books! Can't wait to read it.

When I had jury duty I was surprised it made it to court also. Was a ridiculous trial, waste of tax payers money.
