First let me say Thank you to Ron for all his hard work at completeing this book.  It looks great and very professional.

Sadly I do have a very large problem with it.  Namely my poem.  My dedication got left out.  I don't know if this was due to an editing error or just someone forgetting to put it in, but this disappoints me greatly.  The dedication told the context and reason for my poem and even though I still know, it would have been nice to see it in print.  

My excitement over this book has lessened greatly.

Still its a wonderful book.

ex animo,
Aaron Woodside

They say the sweet is never as sweet without the sour.  So where's my sweet?

Sorry, Aaron. I checked the date stamp on the file, and it looks like you added the Dedication well after signing your Agreement? It didn't occur to me, I'm afraid, that someone might do that, else I would have added a warning to contact me with changes. Once all the Agreements were in, I was intent on laying out the book, which meant the poems (including Title and Dedication) were necessarily frozen. Had I known of your change, I could have added it. But I never looked at the poems again once the Agreement was signed.

Again, sorry.

Aaron, I'm sorry this happened.  I guess it would be even more important to me, as a receiver, to see your dedication in your own handwriting, as the recipient.  No matter who that recipient might be.

God Bless.
