Thank you both

Can I just take a moment to thank the 60-odd people who have downloaded To Posterity over the past 3 weeks? Seeing that number of downloads has totally made my month, as I write the poems so that they can be shared and enjoyed by others (I'm assuming you both enjoyed the poems as I haven't heard any complaints or received any death threats or suchlike).

And a very special thanks, with added hugs, to Heather - the first person ever to make a donation to Rik's Garret Redecoration Fund via the donation link on the RikVerse Website pages; you reduced me to tears, woman!

I noticed something strange ...

... as I was updating my eBook download records from the website (yes, I am that anal):

Why the sudden spike in downloads for RikVerse Volume 1? Not that I'm complaining (please do continue downloading my eBooks as many times as you both like! I want you to read and enjoy my poems on your eReaders), but it just seems a bit wierd for the downloads on that one eBook to almost treble in a single month, especially as the latest version was launched back in March and I've been doing zero promotion for the book since then.

All in all, today has been a day of happy surprises. All I need now is for someone to offer me a paying job (or a lottery win) and my happiness will be complete.
