I am writing an Introductory page for my book. Being that it is the last sentence on the page, would it be OK to say, "Let's get on with the story... " or would I write "Let's get on with the story."? And while I am at it: Are the punctuations in this question placed where they should be? Does it look like I need to brush up on my punctuations?

You are asking what your reader will think if you violate a convention of punctuation.
One of the truly great writers of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett, began his novel, Murphy as follows:-
The sun was shining, having no alternative, on the nothing new.
This is a far greater violation of convention than yours. It shocks the reader with something grammatically unexpected. Instead of “... the glittering water” or “... sleepy rooftops”, we get brought down with a crash to a mundane world: “...the nothing new”. In your case, it is obvious what the three dots are for.
