Why Dewey Inspires This Author to Say "Thanks, Readers!"

in a world filled with many other distractions.
you, Dear Reader, give writers the support and encouragement to continue
creating. I love to write, but sometimes days in front of the computer screen
can be long, editing can be tough and the outlook for book sales can be depressing!
But when I see that there are dedicated readers out there, a new surge of
energy bursts forth. (And when I hear that readers are enjoying my novel, any possible
negative thought slips away!)
