I finally received my first batch of paperback copies of Rookie Privateer. I have a decent number of people that I owe signed copies to including my beta readers. As a writer the first step in releasing a book is to turn it over to a group of readers. Being my first book I had no idea what to expect. I was blessed to have such a wonderful group of diverse readers. I received incredible feedback that helped me fine tune the work. The following is a Haiku that I sent to my beta readers.

your work now complete
mistakes no longer replete
bold journey of words
