As good at it gets

Two copies of the book arrived from the publisher yesterday and sat inside an envelope for an hour and a half as I waited for my wife to come home from work. That was a long wait for someone who habitually struggles with patience.

It's a wonderful feeling to hold a book you've written in your hands. It's official, I'm a published author. I love books and I'm overjoyed that my book could be on someone's bookshelf now.

How exciting!! I know exactly how you feel - when I finally had a copy of "Moon Kansas City" in my hot little hands, I was PUMPED. Now, the second best part is going around to bookstores to see who's carrying it! Can't wait for the party, and I owe you a phone call so we can swap schedules. Looking forward to catching up!

I'm looking forward to buying a finished copy! I read the book in galley form and loved it! I've passed that galley onto a friend who manages a LEGO retail store.

Congrats Jonathan!!! I received my copy yesterday and I started paging through it last night. It's really intriguing so far and very well written! It's been great to be a small part of your journey into the world of the AFOL and you should be really proud of what you have created.

And thanks for the mention in the acknowledgements. You have no idea how happy that made me. :-)
