I will succeed.
And in doing so, I will not apologize because I enjoy what I do. I will not apologize because I love my job, especially to those who cannot stand their own situation and would use me as a whipping post. I am truly, to the pit of my soul, happy. I’m the happiest I have ever been, and it is because the world of writing has allowed me to finally earn a living doing what I love to do.
I want to thank everyone who has ever supported my work, through purchases or helping to spread the word. Because without you, I would be back in some warehouse or widget factory for someone who’s telling me what I’m worth an hour. Instead, I answer only to God, my family, and my readers. And that’s alright by me. I am the Book Commander and I will succeed.
