The proof arrived almost a week early and is GORGEOUS!
What was so cute was how excited he was so I was nice, for once, and let him open the box.
We passed the paperback back and forth "oohing and aahing" at how beautifully it turned out.
It is now LIVE on Amazon. I manged to get it down to $9.99. (CreateSpace sets a price minimum based on page count.)
I also paid extra for expanded distribution so it will appear in the coming weeks on sites like Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, etc.
In addition to my husband, I would like to thank my fantastic cover designer Najla Qamber who also lives on an island...in Bahrain! Naj is a joy to work with.
And to the following bloggers for giving me permission to quote them on page one of the paperback:
