Dear Nancy,

I certainly hope so... My contract says it is distributed by Transaction Publishers (and it should be available from Amazon), but then I know of differing views about the quality of my publishers' distribution network, to put it mildly. If you have any problems acquiring it, please let me know, I'll be glad to help.
