Thank you, Jon, both for reading & for your very kind sentiment. Sure, I prefer to think of it as their loss. I have a revenge fantasy — I want to return one day, being a triumphant, published writer, & stay at The Wort Hotel (at the time it was the priciest hotel in Jackson, although I think now they have more posh-y, swanky joints). Horrible name, though. Plus I really need to amp up my writing & find an agent & get published by an actual publisher. Oh, & sell some of my books, that wouldn’t hurt. But at least the plotting for revenge is done.
