What a rush. I went into my CreateSpace account and there it was “$5.65 December Sales.” I cried. After five years of working on this book, I actually sold a book. Words cannot describe the joy that I feel right now. If you are the first book buyer, I would love to hear from you. Believe me when I say that you’ve made my day and the last five years worth of effort well worth the effort. Thank you! Check out the book’s Amazon.com page.
