I have some truly amazing friends.
Over the past few months since my book came out, the support my friends have given me has been nothing short of stupendous and has reaffirmed my faith in people. Some have bought the novel (and some will, when finances permit), some have promoted it and me, some have been able to show up at the Author Fair at the local library as well as the Evening of Literacy Through the Arts at my school, some have helped promote my Kickstarter project, some have pledged for it, some have offered their emotional support when they couldn't pledge (and that's totally okay, too).
That list isn't even remotely complete, by the way. My friends have been that warmth that nurtures my soul and helps keep me focused on the future. And, some of these friends are people I have never, ever met in person. My online friends mean as much to me as those people whom I know in person.
