I am not proud of what I am about to tell you, but it does have a good ending. When I first wrote book reviews, I WAS BRUTAL. Then, something funny happened. I started emailing with one of the authors I had reviewed about her newest series. She helped me remember that authors are people on a journey. While all of her books are good, the Saven series is remarkable - the best she has written yet. Seriously, I don't know how she'll get better, but I know she will and I am excited to be around for that.
Since I can't meet every one of you in real life, I kept my readers in mind when I wrote my acknowledgements. See, there you are. Last but never least. Because you are the ones starting with me at the beginning of this journey. You are the people taking a gamble on the unknown. You will always have a special place in my heart and a permanent reservation in my acknowledgements.
