I would like to say a sincere Thank You for your overwhelming support of my give away. Both myself and Pat Hatt are touched by your response.
The genesis of this give away began many months ago when I contacted Pat to commission him to do the Dettol Wars Video some of you saw over at Fran's place. Pat agreed to do the work, but he refused to allow me to pay him for it. Making that video cost him more money than did this give away, yet he gave of himself freely. It was then that I offered to paint a figure to promote one of his books to compensate him in some way for his work.
We agreed that he would donate one copy of his book and I the figure and that would be it. Now Pat knows what you all mean to me and a few hours before going to post I got an email from him. "Anne, these are your people and I can't expect them to help me out like this, so I'm going to add a $50.00 gift certificate." I tried to explain to him that gamers don't need that, they help because it is in their nature to do so. He would hear nothing of it and so the give away is as stands.
Now the silly fool of a man still feels like he has taken more than he has been given. Would you please help me put his mind at ease by stopping briefly by his blog today and simply say "Hello Pat". Perhaps then, he will feel, as I have come to feel, that he is an adopted member of our community.
Pat can be found at his blog It's Rhyme Time where he posts 365 days a year. Did I mention he's a workaholic?
