Well, I've arrived at the last page. Time to type "The End" to this latest saga and bid you dearly beloved readers adieu. The good-byes have already stretched out longer than I like, so let me make this one short and sweet.
I've enjoyed sharing with you each week. Not only have I tried to impart a bit of writer-and-editor wisdom, I've had the privilege of introducing you to my family and relaying a few of our adventures over the past couple of years. You've blessed me with your kind comments and cyber friendships, and I trust in some small way I've been a blessing to you as well. I'll be hanging around Facebook in the coming days, so look for me there, and I'll keep you updated on my latest happenings.
While the mystery book club may not be judged a financial success, I am confident in the quality of the books we produced. I look forward to seeing more great books by the authors who comprised our mystery team.
Along the way, I made some tremendous friends and business connections. As I sign off, I want to express my sincere appreciation to each and every one of the mystery authors and freelance editor "regulars" who made my Barbour assignment a true pleasure. You will always hold an extra special place in my heart, dear friends.
Thanks for the memories Author Brothers and Sisters Chris, Jan, & Sandy, Candice, Nancy M, Cec, Lisa H, Rajendra, Dana, Susan & Megan D, Anita H, Darlene, Lynette, Sandra R and Sandra M, Lisa Lu & Janelle, Cynthia, Frances, Kate, Lisa Li, Eileen, Linda, Mary, Janice, Mr. Chris, Susan S, Beth, and Marilyn. And I most definitely could NOT have done this job without my freelance sidekicks and pals Candice, Ellen, Nancy T, and Anita P.
To my dear Barbour teammates and friends, Becky and JoAnne--don't have too much fun around here without me. You've been delightful co-Barbie Girls!
And now. . .
"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." --Hebrews 13: 20-21, NIV.
