I just returned home from vacation and the reception AGAD garnered over the past week is overwhelming. Thank you all so very much.
For those who posted in the public comments section, or those who emailed me privately, thanks to you also for taking the time to write.
While I didn't write so much as a single word while on vacation (spending so many hours in the sun at the beach is exhausting, yo), I was able to envision more plot threads for the next story while staring at the waves; hearing them roll up on shore was pretty relaxing, too.
Again, my thanks.
