You will always have complaints and outrage from some members of your audience. It’s the dream of some people that I quit, or go away. What keeps me going? First, I only have maybe 5% of my audience in a huff about my work, and the rest are the kindest, most generous readers a guy could ask for. Some people exist to take a dump on my person (you have your job, and I have mine), but folks like this put the wind in my sails:

"I just wanted to say "Thank you". Like some of the other moms, I have a son that is "out of the box". He is an ADHD kid and has struggled to focus. Reading has been very difficult for him. By the time I decided medication was the next step, he was very behind in reading and aware he was behind, which just made reading even more difficult. He too received Cardboard for Christmas and loved this book so much that he read past his reading time until he finished the book. That ended up being a little more than an hour and a half of reading for him. (He’s in sixth grade….that is a long time for him to sit.) One of the best things besides him loving this book was to listen to all the voices he gave the characters. We are now looking for more of your books and will focus on the graphic novels. I’m so thrilled that he has finally found something he enjoys reading! You made a difference in our lives!" - From Roy, UT
