For this weeks Under The Covers Blog post, I had something completely different in mind.  I was going to go into detail about the upcoming Ohana Books Read & Survive Giveaway.  But after seeing the news feed on Facebook today, I decided to change it.  I’ll make it short and sweet and to the point.

    I am an author, I make my living, at lest try to, by entertaining others.  I make money, from people willing to pay me to make them laugh, think and enjoy their time, as they escape from reality.  I understand that, and I will never forget that.  I know that when it comes down to it, my job means very little.  Other then providing an income for my family, the only thing I offer is entertainment.  That is something that I will never forget.  The fact that, if you, the consumer is no longer entertained, that all you have to do, is stop buying my product and I will be finished.  It doesn’t matter how great of a writer I am, if know one buys my books, I will not have a writing career. 

    I have written three separate paragraphs, going on about my frustrations with sports players, Hollywood and others, but then deleted them all.  I feel the best thing I can say at this point is, thank you.  Thank you for reading this, thank you for reading my books.  Thank you for the support and encouragement.  Thank you for being part of this great nation.  I know, that without the support of those who read my books, I would not be able to live the life I do.  So, again I say thank you!!!
