I wanted to take a moment to say thank you! We just celebrated Thanksgiving with a visit from Aidan and Maggie, whose namesakes grace the pages of all of The Gemstone Chronicles books, enjoyed the company of our daughter, Laura, and the company of my brother and his two girls. We ate (see the recipes on www.lanascooking.com), talked, laughed, ate some more, and generally enjoyed each other’s company. Aidan and Maggie stayed until today, when we had to take them home.
I also published The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian in paperback on Friday and celebrated with a successful $0.99 sale on the Kindle edition of the e-book. That is another reason to be thankful! Add to that, the fact that I will be publishing in paperback and e-book, The Gemstone Chronicles Book Two: The Amethyst in early December, and I am a very lucky guy!!
So, I want to make sure I thank everyone who has helped me along my path into the realms of the self-published. First, to Lana, my amazing, wonderful, talented, and beautiful wife, I owe you the world. Thank you for letting me share yours! Secondly, to my daughter Laura and her hubby Mike: thank you for being there and for raising your two incredible children! Thirdly, to Aidan and Maggie, the incredible children mentioned above. Thank you for being! Lastly, to everyone else, from Abby my wonderful editor, to the Facebook friends and Twitter friends who offer encouragement and help, to the readers who have decided to part with your money and take a chance on my book, THANK YOU!!!!
