Well it's 3:45 PM Mt. St. Time and I see according to Fed Ex tracking that my large book is sitting on the front porch. Guess my turn to get a peek has arrived, I just need to get my butt out of work and head home now. The two small ones will be there tomorrow.

Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I play around and around and see where I end up..

I have scanned in both inside dust jacket flaps. I have them as a JPEG file and anyone that would like me to email them to them can email me with a request and I'll send them both to you and you can try and make a dust jacket or book marks or what ever you would like to do with them. If you can print out large enough sizes to make a complete dust jacket you could put your own car pictures on the cover and back and make it into what ever you would like.

email me at gtcs@fairpoint.net if you would like me to send them to you.

I want to say everyone has just been awesome in the wonderful responses to the book and I thank you all for your wonderful comments, I appreciate them all and I'm overwhelmed with the wonderful response and I'm just dang glad it's met or exceeded everyone's expectations.

Oh well, still can't wait till they get here, all 3.

That's interesting because my big books are coming out of the Syacuse NY area. I wonder if they have hundreds of work-at-home people, all over the country, printing books.

They've made it to Hutchins, Texas, wherever that is.

Where ever they come from I will say this, the small books are awesome but the big books are wow!! You can see details in the backgrounds that I never even noticed with the pictures on the pc while I was working with them.

Cory;
Just ordered my copies - yes I ordered both a large and small. Just couldn't resist. Besides, my son will want a copy I'm sure. Thanks again for all your work on this project. Now the waiting begins.

Now I really can't wait to get my books!!! When I ordered them they gave me a shipping date of 9/4, now it says that the shipping date will be 9/8 :-(

My guess is that, because there are so many of them being ordered, they have a backlog in printing, so the shipping is taking longer than originally quoted. Both books are still on the "best sellers' list!!

Thumbs up

We've had a busy week or so, but I finally ordered 2 copies of the book tonight (both a large and a small version). Can't wait to see them ...
Thanks again Cory for all of your hard work on our behalf!

It would be interesting to know just how many copies are being sold in total? I wonder how many are being sold to the general public rather than just to the forum members? Is there any way to find out the number of books that have been sold?

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!

You can tell, there is a metric on my Blurb page. Here is last month and there are 17 sold so far this month for a total of 48, no way to tell who, you can tell if they are large or small. You can also see how many hits the book gets by people viewing the web page, the first month was over 800 and it wasn't made available until the 24th or 25th if I remember right.
