Bravo! Author!! Author!!!

After decades of dreaming and three years or so of writing, the first copy of Betty's book arrived. Hallelujah indeed! I am soooooo proud of her. This copy is technically the "galley" and will be sacrificed to the final proofreading process (three final editors taking turns), but then - orders will be placed for the initial scores of copies a host of friends and family are eagerly awaiting. You are going to fascinated by our friend "Jessie" as her intriguing story is revealed page after page. I may be the hubby, but I think it is a good read which is going to have broad and lasting appeal. Watch out Alaska! You have a new contender for best regional reading material.
