Had a nice email from a fan in CT today who wrote that she felt like she'd won the lottery when she received the books she bought in the mail, plus a manuscript copy of this year's annual Christmas story. She's already read that story plus two of the four books.
Thanks, JoAnn- you made my heart happy!
So far everyone who has contacted me has been happy/excited by the books they've read.
Guess I'll keep putting together books and writing more! :)
