Please forgive the exclamation marks (it’s my first time).

So I guess it’s time to show the book off:
Here’s the blurb:

PS If you’d like to help with spreading the word, I’ve created a Thunderclap for launch day, April 1. A Thunderclap, if you haven’t met one before, is a way to do a mass simultaneous social media ‘share’. It’s really easy to participate – one click on http://thndr.me/DkKCSe, and then one click to share my launch message on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. And you’re done! Thanks in advance!
