Just Breeze has Arrived

Yes. I'm now holding the book in my hands. The nice UPS man delivered copies yesterday. Seeing the story in print, the cover with Breeze looking at me, so perfect for the story, makes those months and months of writing and editing, editing, editing worthwhile. Then finding the right publisher, and I did, I did, thank you, 4 RV. Then more editing and seeing the artwork then copy editing. The task seemed endless. But one day, it's over. Well, not quite. Now, the fun begins: meeting Breeze's readers.

Can't wait.
