It's finally here. My book was published today and posted on Amazon. It will take a couple of weeks for the cover picture to show up and they also spelled my first name incorrectly but I'm sure those problems will all be worked out in time. It will also take a week or so to put my name and novel into their search data but meanwhile it can be accessed by the ISBN number 160844211X.
A big thank you to everyone who encouraged and helped me on this journey.
I am fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful people.
