Tribute to Reviewers
I poured almost all of my being into this story the past six months and am gratified by those who took time to send me responses.
So – here's a big THANK YOU to all of you – Hannon le – particularly those who have walked with me from beginning to end, and including all anonymous reviewers. And thank you to all those who put me on your 'favorites' lists – I feel honored.
