Email arrives just before I clamber into bed … and, of course, I can’t ignore it. Could you?
Me: Review? What kind of review?
Email – A Readers’ Favorite review
Me: Oo! For which story?
Email – “To Make the Birds Cry”
Email – Yep. Don’t just take my word for it. Go check it out …
Me: On my way.
Log in for details …
Me: Hmm … what was my password again? *taps in first one that comes to mind*
RF: Not that. Try again.
tap, tap, tap
RF: Nope, not that either
Me: Okay … well maybe I’ve written it down somewhere.
RF: Like where?
Me: In a notebook.
RF: I’ll wait …
Me: Can’t you just tell me now what it says?
RF: Sorry, no.
Me: Okay *pulls out current notebook* Not in here *mooches in drawer where older notebooks live*
Tick tock, tick tock
Me: Don’t rush me …
RF: Would you like to reset your password?
Me: No. I’ve got this. Don’t panic.
RF: Not panicking …
Next morning on my laptop
Me: I found it!
RF: That’s the one.
Me: Wow! I love it.
RF: Was it worth the wait?
RF: So, who you going to tell?
Me: Everyone. But first, I need to add the seal to my cover.
RF: Good idea. Go on then.
Me: I will.
Opens Canva – login screen.
Me: Hmm … what was my password again?
Me: Phew! Looks good though …
Thank you Readers’ Favorite!
Now to update purchase links …, but first a cup of tea and a choccy biscuit. (Do I know how to celebrate or what?)
If you’d care to read the story without the ‘bling’, you can get it here. Same story, just not as shiny.

Happy news and well-deserved accolades for author L.S. Fellows — and it’s told to us in a way that appeal to our inner techno-dunce. Congratulations, Lynne, and thanks for sharing the news with us. Sounds like a fascinating book.
