The Joy of Writing

Every month or so, I send a newsletter to the delightful folks who’ve subscribed to my updates.

How do I know these folks are delightful? I know because they write back to me, sharing encouragement, suggestions, or just saying, “Hi!”

Didn’t I tell you my readers are delightful?

This interaction with my readers is a completely unexpected joy of being an author.

If you would like to pitch-in your ideas on this cover, just leave a comment below. I appreciate all the input I get.
