Today's tidbit: I dedicated The Marquis to my father. He passed away in 2007. I originally had a longer dedication than what's in the book now. It read: "For my dad who battled against his demons and lost, but he always believed in me." Even five years later when I go back to visit family in my hometown, people will mention how my father talked about me being a talented writer and ask if I'm still writing.

    And aw, the book is dedicated to your father? What a great way to honor him, especially since it seems like he was so supportive of you being a writer!

  4. Your father sounds like he was very proud of you. And how great people are still checking up on you!

    When my e-book was published, my dad printed it out so that I could autograph it for him.
