I was doing a search tonight to see if anyone had reviewed my book yet when I came across the blog of Jim Minatel, who is my acquisitions editor over at Wiley (which owns Wrox). In any event, I came across two postings over there that I was sort of humbled by: Nicholas Zakas, my other new author success and AJAX discussions prove interest in Javascript.

Certainly, I put my heart and soul into my book. It’s my baby and it represents nearly two years of my life, so it’s so nice and rewarding to hear kind words about it. Whether it be from my own editor, a reader, or my mom (she’s a big fan, though she doesn’t understand any of what I write about), it’s always nice to know that your hard work is appreciated. Hug an author today!
