If you did, could you do me a favor and let me know when you get/got your copy, just so I have an idea of when they're landing for people?

Some copies have been released as of yesterday, so I'm curious.

I got mine today, actually. It was here right when I got home from school, which was a fantastic thing to come home to.

Oh, yay.

Bad day on the book front for me: seems we had a couple design team errors on the labeling (urethra is misspelled on the internal clitoris illustration, and on the male internal anatomy illustration, text would up beneath it which lebals it as female, even though by context and illus, it's clearly male). And that a Minnesota newspaper decided to make the meat of their short review based solely around one of those small errors.

Chriesta. [Smile]

Fixed in second printing, and yes, I'll be an anal-retentive silly and fix them by hand in all my cartons that come for books I'll sell myself, but still. Bleh.

So!

Nice to balance that out w/happy recipients. [Smile]

A friend ordered it, and it arrived for him a couple days ago. [Smile]

Heck, I find spelling errors in books all the time. Why should the press fuss over that? It's not like they ever make mistakes. [Smile]

(Kara, my carton of books for donors just arrived, and so I'll be sending them out next week, and going through the donor files -- if anyone who did an over $75 donation didn't include an address, rest assrued I'll be emailing to ask for it to send a copy. [Smile] )

Just got mine this morning - much, much earlier than I thought it would arrive. (The mailman looked at me like I was insane for actually jumping up and down when I realized what the package was. [Big Grin] )

Aw. [Smile]

FYI, for those who did/do order from Amazon, I'd like to ask as a favor that when you've read it, you post a review.

As I said to the focus group when I asked the same of them, I want to make clear that I'm not asking you to blindly applaud it if you don't feel that way about it, ultimately, either. We intend (and hope) to have this book be around for a while, which usually means revisions over time, so even if you have critical points to go with applause, those are helpful to us, and something I'd like to see.

And the more reviews that are posted, the better books tend to sell, which we've an obvious vested interest in. [Smile]

My book arrived today, oh the excitement!! A number of my friends who work as welfare officers in colleges and that are mad to see it too!

It looks amazing, and due to exams I'm limiting myself to the back cover and the contents list!!!


Congrats Heather [Smile]

Aw, Daria. Bless.

I've been meaning to say: I got my pre-ordered copy in the mail earlier this week! (Ordered from Amazon in the US, then personally forwarded here.)

So exciting! I've been reading away and planning a review. (Although Joey's "appropriated" it for the weekend. [Smile] )
