History Press ended up having a delay in printing the book and informed us of it a few days ago.  The pre-orders are being air mailed with a deadline date to be in our hands no later than tomorrow.  So everyone who has pre-ordered should receive their signed books by the end of this week.  I assume the orders going into book stores should reach them later this week as well.

Can't wait for this. Good work all.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I'm looking forward to the May Cohen's book already.
