Thanks for joining the group. I checked out your book, I was irk cause LT didn't show the cover (pet peeve) so I added it to my LT then added the cover, then deleted it, so the cover would remain. Not sure if the cover orginally showed on yours or not, If not, It's there now for your to add. Looks good! Good for you!
Hi, Alan

I didn't realize folks could leave comments on this thing--it really is like a MySpace for books! I looked into the LibraryThing Authors list like you suggested. Very cool. I'll be sure to sign up as soon as my book gets its ISBN. Thanks!
