I am the typical absolutely pathetic author who has to google her name every so often to see what people are saying about her books.
Serves me right, of course.
Over on Blogpulse, up pops a blog entry by someone saying they loved Heart of the Mirage, and they are so worried - because of my venerable old age, you see - that I might die before I finish the series.
I am tickled to death (oops, now that's an unfortunate metaphor) and will do my very best to stay alive, I promise. I cannot think of a lovelier comment from a reader. Thank you!
Roll on 2007 and may I still be alive at the end of it! Happy New Year everyone.
