It's here! :-)
This morning a delivery van pulled into the driveway and out came a man with a very heavy looking box. He came to the door and my wife signed the acknowledgement form and the box came inside. On opening the box I was blown away to see a whole pile of books - MY BOOK! - sitting there looking back at me. It's all very real now Finally now that I can sit here and hold my book I can honestly say that the days and nights that were spent learning and writing were all worthwhile.
This book has been available for purchase via the Manning site - either in paper format or e-book format - and there are also a couple of sample chapters available from there. In addition to that the forums have started getting activity as well.

From what I understand, the book will be available from Amazon by the weekend.

Congratulations. There's nothing like that feeling of having the physical book in your hands. Now when you go into bookstores, you can pull your book to the front and push mine to the back 8)
Now would I do that Dave?

Dave, I'd have to push *all* your books the the back :-)

Wow! Wow! And another wow! Congratulations! I perfectly understand how you feel because it must have been the same feeling that I felt when I had my first book delivered to our house too. Now it’s time for you to tell us where we can purchase your book.
