Thank you from the Down Deep of my heart to everyone who made this past year the wildest of my life. It has been an amazing ride. Ever since I was a young boy, wearing out paperbacks like there was no tomorrow, I’ve dreamed of being a writer. I never expected to be a decent one, or one who sold more than a handful of books, I just wanted to complete a novel. One book. And then I’d be able to die happy.
One book turned into ten. The hope of selling a handful turned into an appearance on national bestseller lists. The aspiration of reaching a reader or two has led to amazing friendships and thousands of acquaintances.
Thank you, each of you. I hope 2013 is as amazing for you as 2012 has been for me. Whatever you dream of, chase it. Even if you don’t catch it, you might give it a good scare.
