In my opinion the explicit genuine, honest, and sincere expression of appreciation, gratitude, and thanks for those who make writing a success is always appropriate:

The act and process of Writing is an individual pursuit, but the success that results owes much to those who support it. Hello to the fans of The Jhon Collector Mysteries, who purchased the book in Larchmont, NY.!

All Souls

Life comes into being without any invitation of our own: we suddenly find ourselves in it. And as soon as we recognize ourselves as alive we become aware that we tend toward inevitable death……Death is the point at which life, by freely and totally giving itself, enters into this ground and this infinite act of love. Death is the point at which life can, if we so choose, become perfectly real, Death is, then the point at which life can attain its pure fulfillment. Death brings life to its goal. But the goal is not death – the goal is perfect life. – Thomas Merton

Access to a decommissioned prison for research for Jhon Collector mystery led me to see the following, hand-written poster, still hanging on the wall of the common room:

Believe and Achieve

I can’t. (Then you won’t.)

I want to. (Then you might.)

I might. (Then it’s possible.)

I can. (Then take action.)

I am. (Now Success!)

All people can be equal to another if they so choose. No one person is superior to another simply by declaration.

I believe that Life is worth living. If that makes me, from an uninformed perspective, “A Conservative”, so be it.
