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: http://bit.ly/rQHIFl . 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.
