Doing the Happy Dance

Nobody (well, nobody sane, anyway) sets out to be a writer for the fame and fortune.  We toil because we love it.  We write because we can't not write.  And yet I'll shamelessly admit there is a not so small part of me that does crave, if not adulation, then at least a pat on the back.  So I'm very excited to share with you the best review I've ever received on any of my books: .  My thrill isn't at the hope that this review sells more books, or gets tweeted around the blogosphere.  I'm dancing around the room with a permagrin because my words made this reader happy for a few hours.  Put a smile on her face.  For me, that is the ultimate authorial satisfaction.
