Thank You Elle!  We're just heading out the door -- Patty managed to break a temporary crown on one of her teeth, and with a signing tonight and the tour starting at Oh-dark-thirty tomorrow, we're trying to get her into the dentist this morning. 

Release day is always a high-tension event. So far, the reviews of the book look good (though, of course, there's some whining about ebook prices).  It's too early to tell for sure, for hopefully most people enjoy the read!

Thanks for everything, Hurogs!

I've read nothing but fantastic reviews so far, fingers crossed! High tension but I think it'll go fabulously.

Ugh, broken crown.  :( Good luck with that and safe travels for the tour.

Direct cause & effect there!  Stress = clench/grind teeth = broken temporary.  With luck the permanent one has been delivered & can be placed.

Happy release day, and good luck with the crown.  Not the way you were planning to start the day, I'm certain! :o

Happy Release Day, Patty, sorry to hear about the crown.  :( Hopefully all has been fixed by now and you are signing books for the throngs of readers.  :)   Safe travels on the tour!

When I'm good I am real good  >D , When I'm bad I'm even better :-whistle

Hope all went well at the signing, and that the tooth was fixed promptly.
Price whining? Oh, well, I'm whinging over the fact that since I ordered on-line I'm still waiting. Sniff. And that the finks, I mean folks, at B&N didn't ship until sometime last night.  :-'Waaah.
But I know we'll hear about the signing as soon as the story can be told. :D

Thanks for all the support and good wishes.  The crown is fixed.  A slightly-stressed Patty went to a signing last night with a couple hundred people, all of whom were very friendly.  The signing ran until about 9:30, so we made it home just after 10:00 PM, then Patty packed until after midnight.  (I swear, the military can supply a foreign campaign with less preparation and fewer goods than Patty takes on tour).   We bounced up again at 5:00, and I'm waiting for her to finish breakfast so we can make it to Seattle in time for an interview and signing there.

G'morning Hurogs, and wish us luck!  For those in Seattle, see you soon!   :D

I grabbed my copy yesterday, and have not quite finished only because of work and fatigue.

Happy release day, and thank you so much for reminding me how healing a good story is for a weary and worried spirit.
