So, I got the coolest email today from a person. I won't use their name, but I do have permission to use their initials, so thank you, S.A. The email went as follows (I've copied and pasted it):
"Dear Mr. Parker
I just ordered the paperback about how to make money and stuff as an artist. I am S.A. I'm 26 and an artist from Washington State. I have quietly followed your work for a few years now and greatly admire you and your art. It sounds like an honest book. I very much look forward to reading this.
All the best to you,
