Only another writer can fully appreciate the long hours it takes to write a novel. The book becomes a part of you, a living being that demands more and more of your time and effort, but when it is all done, there is relief and satisfaction.
I hope you enjoy the book. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry, and it will make you reflect upon your own participation in the human experience.
Thank you, one and all, for your support and friendship.
