I saw today on Amazon that Derrick the Dog had gotten its first review. It's my first ever review by someone I don't know (my awesome wife gave me my actual first review). I was very excited.
Much like those dollar bills you see hanging on the walls of business across this country, I wanted to hang that review here so I'd always remember it. I know it's bad form for authors to contact reviewers directly, so I'll refrain. But N. Burchett, wherever you are, if you see this, I want you to know that you brightened what had otherwise been a stressful, busy day at work. Thank you, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
And so she doesn't feel unappreciated, I'm hanging my wife's review right up here with N.'s. Thank you, Miranda, for more than I could ever enumerate! You're my lobster.
