I received the book yesterday and it looks great, from that first meeting in your office a couple of years ago to now a finished publication which has ended up better then I first thought it would be.
Thank you both for your belief in my work and the manner in which you have displayed it. I hope it is a great success for you as a reward for your efforts.
