I found this book very inspiring years ago. I don't like advertising Amazon too much, and there is a free epub format somewhere to be found in the web (legal). So if a non physical book ist good enough you might find it
Get the wanting out of waitingWhat does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address.

Your preceptor is just another guy performing a brief ceremony...and depending on where you ordain, it may occur that you never see him again...
...I need my preceptor to be a person who is not handling money.
