Proof that when you’re a nice guy, nice things happen to you. I remember Larry from two years ago, when he was at the Utah conventions telling people about his improbable voyage as a self-published author. Now, Larry is a New York Times Bestseller. I’ll say it again, the formerly self-published man whose book was roundly rejected by all takers, is now officially on the New York Times Bestseller list. I’ve said it before, when discussing my writing philosophy: persistence wins. Larry never gave up on his ideas, or his book. He did what he had to in order to get into print, nice things happened for him, and now he’s a national fiction commodity on the New York Times Bestseller list. Congratulations, Larry! You absolutely deserve it, I think everyone who knows you is damned proud of you, and happy to see you succeed. Monster Hunter über alles!
