1. Well, for it’s worth, I’m really proud of you. It took a lot of guts to self-publish your collection. I know it wasn’t easy for you, and I know it was more of an experiment for you than anything. The attention it’s received, obviously, has had its ups and downs. It’s amazing to me how many people judge things they’ve never experienced. Not surprising, though. I think people are often quick to judge things they are afraid of actually trying. I think, because of you, a lot of writers who were previously scared to try it are now seriously considering it.

  2. THAT GIRL YOU KNOW AS B

    Wow…it has been a year huh? I remember I got it as a birthday present, and really…it was one of the best presents I could’ve gotten, aside from your friendship of course.

    For what it’s worth, I’m very proud of you for putting yourself out there.

  3. I think you already know how I feel about your work. It’s true that Entrekin is a collection of your work, rather than a collection with a theme, and as such, holds up the concept of self-titling. Nothing egocentric about that. It’s a statement of fact.

    I’ve read the collection more than once. While I know you have grown since publishing it, it was still a full and rich first effort, as far as I was concerned. It proved once again that if a writer stick to his/her own voice, the result is refreshing and exciting.

    I’m glad Lulu has worked out for you. One of my authors had tried Lulu first, and it was a real struggle. I suggested we skip the middle man and go straight to Lightning Source, who does the printing for Lulu. We’ve done that with his initial book and not only improved service, but cut costs in half.

  4. @Alma: it’s worth quite a lot, in fact. Always is.

    @B: that’s right, I remember that! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    @Shannon: thanks again, brother.

    @Maggie: yeah, I think you’re right about that. Some people don’t feel that way, but, then, one of the other things I learned this year is you can’t please everyone.
