    Opening my front door this morning (Sunday) I found my box of CGB books! So, coffee in hand, I sat down and began…after browsing a few pages, I turned the next page and saw “Introduction for Backwards Readers.” I wanted to shout, ‘you got me, Kate!” What I’ve seen so far makes me very happy, the gifts will make a couple of other beaders happy, and Kate is happily working on Book II…what could be better?

      SO fabulous!!! Ha!! I was just saying to Bill this morning, “I wonder who I will catch like that?” You know I was hopeful. You made my day. Thank you.

        Kate, I think going from back to front in a book is something I learned in college…and I do it too with novels…need to read what the author has as commentary before I begin a new book. I’m a total backa*s!

    I can’t wait for my book!!!!

  3. Hi Kate,
    My book and swag arrived yesterday…. Thanks so much, it’s more beautiful than I ever imagined!!! Can’t wait for Mum to come home from the hospital, so I can spend more time beading and less time commuting back & forth to visit her… ; )
    Fantastic job, it’s perfect!
    Thanks again,
    Lisa A.

      If that was still the real password, it would be very naughty to put it in the comments thread. Ha! All y’all need to read that paragraph up there, that says that the password to download the eBook can be found in the letter that came (or will come) with your book. But if you haven’t got your book yet, and you want to see the eBook, I am happy to email it to you.

    I’m determined to calmly wait for my package of delights…now you have dangled the carrot of a new password in front of me…struggling with that calmness now 😉

      I’d say about another week, or week and a half.

      The password that was emailed to you when you ordered your book, and which has opened the Specials page for the past year. Please email with your PayPal email address if you would like us to look you up and re-send it.

    When should we inquire if we don’t get our copy? I prepaid so long ago……

      Oh, in about a week, if you are in the US, two weeks if you are overseas. It’s been a long project! Most books take a year to make… some take longer. Shipping began late last week, and will finish up tomorrow.

    Lotsa ❤ Kate – and wishes that you will get a little more than 5 minutes of peace in your garden before calender madness begins.

      Thanks! Nope, no time off for me for another week still. But it will be sweet when it comes.
