My release date is three weeks away - I have been on pins and needles all summer waiting to hold a copy in my hands.

They should get back to me with a final version tomorrow.  I am so excited!!!! BounceGiggle BounceGiggle TeddyR Thumbup Cheers

As soon as it comes out,  I will post links to all the sites where you can order a copy of your own.
If you want a signed copy and have Paypal, you can buy them direct from me - just send me a PM AFTER the 12th.

I've been "Indiana Smith" since high school.  I'm kind of fond of the nickname now!

I think "By Indiana Smith" is the way to go.

I know they say do not judge a book by it's cover but if a book had this cover I would read it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
