There are several of us on this board who have contributed stories to that book, including Jessica, Shirley, Stacie, and myself. I can't wait for it to hit the shelves, my whole family is waiting to read it, both for the stories and for the educational information. I think it will be fantastic!

Hope you all enjoy it!

Kathleen-
I emailed Peter this morning, he said my copy of the book was shipped out this morning!! I can't wait to read it.

I didn't realize I had submitted so much! ha I was looking through the table of contents of the book online and I have 4 articles and 1 recipe!! haha I guess I must have been feeling wordy that day!! :D

I can't wait to get my book...it looks like he is trying to do a second edition of it. So anyone who wishes to participate I am sure that they can.....the website is here: A Personal Touch On Celiac Disease

Hey Guys, Melonie Katz is in there too. She's on the Silly Yak web site and is a better writer than I am, much better. I hope people who need the book, read the book. I think anyone with this disease really has a story to tell. Too bad, it's taking so long to get the message across. But, better late than never for those poor people who still don't have the message. Shirley

Yeah, I was pretty chatty too, my story was about three times longer than Peter originally recommended, plus I put my cinnamon cookie recipe in there. But he said it was exactly what they were looking for, so I hope everyone else enjoys it too.

Hi everyone, haven't posted in a while, but I'm in the book too! (just tooting my own horn! :P ) I have been reading the book non-stop since I got it and am so amazed by everyone's stories. I am tempted to get a copy for each of my doctors and send it to them -- especially the gastroentreologist from my story! Congrats to everyone for sharing their stories with a positive outlook on life.

I think everyone did a WONDERFUL job on the book! I am reading everyone's story one by one!! I too have a story in there and in the process of preparing another story for the second one, a story about my daughter and how she was dx. I hope our stories will help someone out there and that is what is most important.

Kathleen, I read your story you did a wonderful job and Jessica you were chaty, but you did a GREAT job!

Alison and shanmac I look forward to reading your story too, as well as ALL of them!

Way to go! Thatís fantastic that your stories got into print.

Peter also kept bugging me for a submission. I opted out because of the contract. I sure am glad you all are not contract shy. ;)

I still haven't recieved mine yet.. :( I wonder what's taking it so long. I admit living in AK slows down shipping, but I still (usually) get packages in a few days. Oh well. guess I'll wait a little longer.
