Killer blurb completed: Check. Launch date tweeted, facebooked and approximately 100 book bloggers/reviewers sent a review copy: Check.

Phew! Now I just have to wait 24 hours or so...

And there it is! Whoopee! My first book sitting proudly on the Amazon virtual bookshelves: 101 Things You Can do With a Dead Budgie. I wonder if it will be a bestseller?

Thank you! Loved your anecdote - that's a great story in itself!

This was clever because you hit the heart and soul of the contributors on this site. About 35 years ago, I was teaching fine cooking to the officer's wives club in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona. On the final exam, I asked the multiple choice question, "Which wine would you serve with Salmonella? A. Chianti or B. Chardonnay" Almost all chose chardonnay. Great post!!!.
