    Hey guys, I'm really thrilled with the feedback on the book so far. I have to say, this email I received in December has been in the back of my mind, so the positive feedback is very heartening:

    Hi Folks, I do not normally do this, but I just saw what you are proposing as
    the covers for this book.

    I am very disappointed. It will devalue the book, it literally looks
    like pavement pizza, I'm going to cry, I buy these books because they
    are usually works of art, but this ...

    Can you go back to the black cover with the red writing, anything
    would be better than what you have on the website. I can't believe it,
    I am in shock. Blech!

    Heartbroken

    Did you get it from the Hut, or that Italian looking place right next to it?

    Haven't been back to that particular Pizza Hut in a LONG time, the service is always terrible, unfortunately. Funny, true story: we walked in there one day and the older woman who had just taken a phone order yelled to the staff (loud enough for everyone in the restaurant to hear): "And he doesn't want any f---ing olives this time!!!"

    The Italian place has some really great food (especially their awesome soup!), but those lunches would get expensive real fast -- plus it's a nice sit down restaurant and we usually grab our food and run! I think Dan once took a 15 minute lunch break when he was slacking off, though.

    What surprised me when I moved to Maryland, at least this part of Maryland, is HOW MANY pizza places there are. This area is a veritable cornucopia of pizza joints!

    Yes there are. There's a moon bounce place back there behind that Italian place, and we went there one time for a birthday party. The hosts got pizza from that Italian place and it was pretty darn good.

    Ugg not the pizza hut..... What should have been a 25 min lunch took nearly an hour because of how slow they where. They brought my food once and still hadn't brought the drinks...

    Hey Brian, maybe the customer the older woman had been talking to was the same person who didn't like the design for The Strain. Maybe they were having an olive flashback from the Strain pictures.
