THANK YOU!!!!!

And Carrie F, who asked about how I sustain a series like that: In a way it's really easy to write another book because I know all the characters, settings, etc. I have a routine where I do seven drafts (four on the computer, then one printed out and marked up, then one printed out and read aloud and marked up, and then one printed out and marked up). In another way it's really hard to think of new situations for characters who never age and to think of new jokes for each book. It helps that I'll have a half year break between #12 and #13. In any event, I feel extremely fortunate.

It sounds like you have a great system, Debby, tho I can imagine it would be hard coming up with fresh ideas and situations for your characters. Come to think of it, my son might like reading Zeke Meeks, so I'll be on the lookout for it. Congratulations, again!
