Roses are red, violets are blue,
I love you, my readers, for all that you do:
To your families and friends, you talk up my books;
You buy the hard copies, Kindles and Nooks;
You come to book signings in out-of-way places.
I’m always so happy to see my fans’ faces!
You sign up for my newsletter and say lots of nice things
On Goodreads, in book clubs – you make my heart sing!
You share kind reviews, both oral and text,
You give me ideas for what to write next.
You twitter my Tweets, like my Facebook page, too.
I’m so very grateful for readers like you who
Help me find new folks that I want to reach
And invite to the fun of being my peeps!
For YOU, my dear fans, are the reason I write
All through the day and into the night,
Wrestle with words and struggle with plots
(which sometimes are great, but sometimes are not!).
When all’s said and done, I have to confess
There’s only one way I measure success:
If I’ve made you laugh, touched your heart in some way,
My work is done, and YOU’VE made my day!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers
