My main point in posting this is to say that sometimes (even years later) a book can suddenly take off in unexpected ways. I know there have been some threads from people worried about a less-than-spectacular launch. Just goes to show...

Thanks for your good wishes, everyone.

Is there anything better than surprise money?! (Well, aside from world peace, family, love and all those other meaningful things.)

Yippee for you, Ellen! Thoroughly deserved and well worth celebrating.
