Yesterday, when I arrived home after a brutal weekend, both on the work and family front, I opened my email and there it was.. My first "I Love Screwball" letter! Yes, I've had reviewers, editors, first readers, family members, friends, and other authors read the book and tell me they liked it, but this was the first stranger letter from the exact demographic that I attended to reach when I wrote SCREWBALL. What an amazing feeling to read this wonderful email.
How do you feel when you receive a nice note about your book, magazine article, or story? Do you remember your first fan letter? What did you do with it? Anyone have any happy news they'd like to share?
After watching someone I love very much dodge a major health bullet this weekend, today is a great day to share happy thoughts and be thankful. :)
