Hi Ellen,

I noticed that you mentioned me on your list. I am very honored and happy. Thank you!

However, I noticed that my name was slightly wrong on the list. (I don't know if this is the place to mention it or if there is an email list.)

Andrews, Jason “Moonlight in Scarlet,” Cover of Darkness September.

It should be Andrew. I often get the S on the end of my last name.
