"It was a fun little writing project for me. It wasn’t meant to be anything more than that. It’s free, so at least no one can bitch that I am profiting from this story. If I had to give a rating, I would give RAISE YOUR GLASS between 2.5 to 3 stars. No, it isn’t a great story (or my best) It’s funny, though (at least, to me!) I am grateful a handful of readers thought it was funny as well.
I think Twilight is one giant inside joke. I don’t get why it’s so popular, and the Twilight fans don’t get why Twilight is so easy to make fun of. I don’t even think avid Twilight fans realize how silly they are. I made this point once in the introduction, and I will say it again - the dialogue in RAISE YOUR GLASS came from real people, the same people that will embarrass themselves online with the reviews they write. The same people that will make YouTube videos, praising how wonderful Twilight is, like that Emma Clark fruit-cake (the real life Anne Marie Wilkes Dugan!) If I had to dedicate this ebook to anyone, it would be to THOSE people who inspired this story! And it’s the uproar that keeps this story in the top ten Amazon list.”
