Tadaaaaa! The Book!

Got my advance copy today! They even throw in a bottle of wine!
_______

An advance reading copy, advance review copy, advance reader's edition, advance copy, or reader's edition (ARC or ARE) is a free copy of a new book given by a publisher to booksellers, librarians, journalists, celebrities, or others, or as a contest or school prize,[1] before the book is printed for mass distribution.

ARCs may lack the final dust jacket, formatting, and binding of the finished product. The text of an advance edition may also differ slightly from the market book (the final version that is distributed for sale), because changes may be made after advance readers make comments or find errors in the manuscript. When a celebrity reader or journalist gives an endorsement, that may be added to the dust-cover and other promotional items.

ARCs are normally distributed three to six months before the book is officially released to reviewers, bookstores, magazines, and (in some cases) libraries.

Norm, I'm very excited for you and the future readers of this great book. It's been a long journey and you made it happen. I'm anxious to read the book. I'm sure Paul is smiling. Great picture you posted.

Wonderful news, Norm. I am so happy for you. Thank you for recognizing one of the kindest most decent human beings I have ever known. You have turned the spotlight on one who always shunned any recognition of his own remarkable talents. Paul was more special than I am able to put into words. I can't wait to see and read your book.

Thank you, Norm.

Richard

Hope you guys like it

I just read it in book form (advance reading copy) and like to think it is entertaining as well as informative

If you do like it, leave a good review at purchasing site

I hope they sell enough so the publisher at least makes his nut and then some

Strange feeling knowing it is at the printer and totally out of my hands now.

Can't pin them down on final delivery date. Hope for CAAS but not likely to happen. Publisher says too many things can go wrong from printer to vendor

They''re printed overseas. I did not know that until very recently
