  1. Hi Sandra,
    I’ve tried to order your book and filled in my details with the BNB site as required – name and email and password. When I then tried to place an order I got the following message:
    “You are not an active member. Please contact the administration.”
    With no obvious place to make such contact. And I do not have any idea how to become an active member if I’m refused out of hand.
    Sorry, but I am easily frustrated and dissuaded by this kind of stuff. Jumping through hoops – not my thing. Please advise how I can become an “active member” so I can order your book.
    And perhaps suggest to the admin of BNB that they make this process simpler for potential purchasers.
    I really want your book – please let them know.
    Thank you.
