Thanks!

First I had to admit I was wrong about you getting the book to review, and now I have to admit that I liked your blog post about the book.  I have to read the book now.

I see on your website that some of your books are available as ebooks.  Is any plan for this one to become available as a ebook?

I've been talking to the publisher about the possibilty of an ebook, and so far there's not one planned. However, I'm going to stay after them about it because many people have asked.
