Receiving the cover of a book is always exciting, but the act of creating that book has always been what I enjoy the most. To think that the words we write are read by the many or the few is by far the best part of being a writer. How strange that what we write may influence the readers we attract is scary too. How careful we must be to "get the words right." How important that becomes as we create our stories. Our heroes must truly be heroes and not some cut out paper figure. Each of them, as we put them on paper, must represent the best of us, or at least those who attempt to be the best. That is a frightening challenge we all face. May each of us be up to the task.
