Small things still matter.

And opportunities come to those who leave the door open.

I recently sent a thank you letter. It was to a gentleman who probably had no idea I was in the audience at the event he spoke at, but I wanted to thank him for his time and effort. After all of the appearances I have done with my novels, I understand that a thank you can go a long way.

Obviously, it did.

I received a reply from him, and he did indeed remember me. His message also left an invitation to a greater opportunity for me as a writer. That was totally unexpected!

How many people would have missed an opportunity like this?

If only more people knew the art of the compliment!

I can live for two months on one good compliment. - Mark Twain
