I'm sure several (hundred? thousand?) people have informed you of how Revelation was the best thing that has ever happened to humanity. I'm not sure enough people have told you that. So at the risk of (correctly) inflating your ego even more, that was the best thing that has ever happened to humanity. The fact that you came forward the way you did is also a bonus.
I'm not the sort of person who proposes to celebrities I read about on magazines, however marriageable such a feat might make them, but I am the sort of person who would love to have some coffee with Revelation. If you ever read this and are still single (or open to polyamorous arrangements), hit me up.

"...yeah okay fair."
"So I guess I shouldn't keep you curious any longer about my pre-Revelation summoning career."
"Yeah, do tell."
"It was a year before Revelation, I was in high school and during summer I was serving as counselor at a summer camp. I sneaked into an area that was still being built, on a dare, after the kids had gone to bed, and I saw an angel there. I was, ah, surprised."
"What were they doing there?"
"The construction company's owner had summoned her. He was, I believe, one of the people whose businesses you disrupted when you did the thing."
"I disrupted several small businesses, yes."
"Anyway, I asked her what the duck and she said she was an angel and explained the whole shebang and was very racist towards demons."
"- oh yeah I also don't really like swearing much? It started when I was a kid, my mother used to say that you should only swear when you really meant it and I'm pretty sure it was just to get me to not swear but then she died and I kept doing it sort of as remembrance."
"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. So the angel explained everything and you - went home and summoned your own angel? Based on one conversation?"
"The angel didn't really know a lot about summoning but her circle was one for a random so I could copy it and then when I got home I looked up what the Latin on the bindings meant and then yeah I summoned my own angel."
"Well, I'm glad that didn't work out catastrophically."
"That binding was actually pretty decent, if not as good as the ones you published. I didn't really have a lot of - free time, when I could disappear and go somewhere to summon an angel, but whenever I did I summoned one to ask them questions and ask them if they knew more about bindings and summoning and stuff. And then Revelation and the whole thing was moot. So not much of a career after all."
"Did you capitalize on having been a summoner before?"
"Not really, I was seventeen when you Revealed and that whole year didn't get me nearly as much as the first class of Summoning 101 does. How did you come about it?"
"Found the book in an abandoned house."
"Wow that's lucky. Did it have all the same instructions and stuff?"
"Yeah, I abridged it and edited a little but it was a pretty good book to start out - lucky for my anonymity, I don't turn up as the author."
"Nor as the editor?"
"Editor is not a conjurable parameter."
"But author is? Why?"
"Unclear. I did check."
"Huh. Weird." Pause. "So what are the plans now?"
