Thank you, Diana!
I was delighted by the inscription, which reads, "To Karen, Thanks for 4 years of bumblebee-herding!" I'd requested this particular inscription as a reference to my role "herding the bumblebees" (as Diana put it) on the Compuserve Books and Writers Community, where I've been Section Leader of the Diana Gabaldon folder since September, 2008.
And I love the latest title Diana has bestowed on me, in the Acknowledgements to A TRAIL OF FIRE. "Nitpicker-in-Chief" refers to the fact that I sent Diana detailed (and sometimes very nitpicky) comments on each of the four stories in A TRAIL OF FIRE, at various points in the last couple of years. I'm really glad she found my comments helpful!
THANK YOU, Diana!!
