When I finish reading a book by one of my friends I always send them a quick email and let them know what I liked about it. I can’t help it. I think it’s because I’m always so thankful to read a great romance and when it’s written by someone I know, I want to tell them how much I enjoyed it. Since I’m quite the miser with compliments, this is a bit out of character for me.
However, I’ve never sent fan mail to an author I don’t know. I wonder why. I did ask a few authors what they thought about fan mail and was excited to hear that they love it! Even if you read a book of theirs from years ago, they love receiving your reaction to their stories. In fact, the authors I corresponded with said they reply back to fan mail! How great is that?
Have you ever sent fan mail? Did you hear back?
