Holy cow, a compliment

Dear beleaguered Miss Snark:

Last year at this time you ran the crap-o-meter for First Pages and I submitted. Your comments were wonderful, and so were the comments of the snarklings. It was a great boost. And the book I wrote from that first page sold recently in a wonderful two-book deal. The service you provide is priceless and I, for one, thank you very much for it. Just wanted to let you know it's not all for naught.


Miss Snark is quite pleased to hear she might not need to buy as many indulgences this year as last.

Um, hasn't the selling of indulgences been forbidden since the Council of Trent in 1567?

Oh yeah. Whether or not I ever send anything to the crapometer, Miss Snark is going to be in my acknowledgements with a big "Thank you for the generous, free advice." Those who comment here are also a snarky big help.

Congrats, anonymous author!

Anonymous, you can get blackmarket indulgences. After all, your name is cleared right after you buy it, so who cares if it's not allowed?

ROFL! Thanks, Elektra! :-)
