We’ve all seen them. Those cute, sometimes hilarious dedications at the beginning of people’s stories. My books are no different. For those of you who have read “Erik the Tempered”, you may have noticed the dedication. If not, it says the following…
For my mother
The woman who taught me how to write and most everything else in life.
My mom only recently read “Hollen the Soulless” and hasn’t yet read any of the other books in the series. That suited me just fine because I wanted to see the look on her face when she spotted the dedication for the first time. I wasn’t disappointed.
Fortunately, I had the foresight to catch the moment on camera. I decided to share it with you all (after getting her permission, of course). This is the sort of thing that writers dream about and are blessed to actually experience.
Note: The man at the end is my father.
