Hi, Tony. All book sellers can order my book. I believe I've seen WINGS advertised on Books-A-Million. Karl

Tony Petry Do you think Books-A-Million would have your book or be able to order it?


message 5: by Karl

Karl Friedrich Oops. That should have been your, not you're. Duh!

Karl Friedrich Luckily, WINGS is being bought up like crazy by libraries across the whole country. You're local one probably has it already. If not, you might consider asking them to order it. :-)


message 3: by Tony

Tony Petry Oh yeah


message 2: by Karl

Karl Friedrich Too bad. Do you think you will read it?


message 1: by Tony

Tony Petry No I really wish I would have one a copy of it. I know I would have really enjoyed reading it.
