Yesterday, one of my best friends who lives abroad visited me. I haven’t seen him for 2 years and we stayed in contact through the social networks, and since I share my news and updates with everyone, he was bound to learn that his best friend has a fiction thriller out there.
I took him to P. F. Changs for lunch, and then we went to shop in the Grand Avenues. That’s when he gave me the book to sign it for him.
Here’s what I wrote (translated from Arabic):-
To my dear friend
With this book I dedicate my greatest wishes of health, wealth and prosperity for you and all your beloved ones.
Don’t forget that I paid a lot for today’s lunch. (I wrote the bill for him)
Long Live Play (he’s a very big fan of video games and this phrase is famous among gamers)
I wrote the date, signed it for him and then wrote a witness section where our third friend signed too.
I have signed my book a couple of times before, but that one was special to me. He have already read my thriller and it was his cup of tea. He gave me the support that every author in the world needs. It is that support that keeps us going on to create and polish our stories… they make things easier for us.
