|Is there a reader who recognizes this scene?|
If you liked the story, feel free to say so. The book opens, as you will have noticed, with a quotation from Somerset Maugham. Another of my favorite Maugham quotations is, "People ask for criticism but they only want praise." I don't know who those strange creatures are, asking for criticism. (We'll get it anyway, won't we?) I'm along for the praise, though.
In other news, the Prize Pack (see the sidebar) has been awarded to a lady in Virginia. She's sent me her details and I'll be packing up her goods this week.
I'm always pleased to hear from you, the nice class of people who constitute my readers. Feel free to stop in for a chat anytime. Thank you again.
