17 Jul Writing to an Author
Do you ever read such an awesome book you feel you just have to tell the author how much you loved their work? Yeah? Then go ahead and do it! Believe it or not, authors love to hear from you.
Recently, one of the employees here wrote to an author she’d been thoroughly enjoying, and well, it paid off! Check it out below.

I haven’t finished the book “All I ever wanted”, yet, because I stop and laugh uproariously at the characters. But just wanted to say I am thoroughly enjoying my first book. I will definitely be reading the rest of your books. Thank you for a breath of fresh air in the Contemporary romance genre. Please don’t ever write those awful vampire books. Just kidding, I would read one by you it would be fantastic.

Thanks, Theresa! So far, no vampires…I really can’t imagine writing one of those. No sparkling here. No scintillating arms (the phrase at which I stopped reading Twilight).
You quote my favorite author of all time! He’s got a shout-out in my upcoming book…
Hope you like all the other books, and thank you so much for writing!
