Thanks, Nelle Smith!

Here's Nelle holding a copy of Battle Rattle and Other Stories.

Thanks so much, Nelle. I don't want to encourage you to flip to the back without reading the words in between, but you might see your name mentioned in the "additional thanks" section at the end of the book.

Here I am, publicly thanking you, for all the time and energy you've put in to helping me get my books into readers' hands. I may not have an agent right now, but some days I feel like I do.

Hope your work week goes well.
