'I read your first two books, I loved them. I signed up so I can get the files to keep reading. I'm addicted. How do I get them?'
What author doesn't want to know people are addicted? I mean addiction is bad and all, but it's flattering nonetheless :).
Reviews are better for a writer in the sense that lots of people see them and they can help drive sales, but a fan letter is special because it means a person took the time to subscribe, get the email/mailing address, and write and send it. Smiles!
OK, on to productive things like ventilating the child (he has a cold and needs a break from breathing) and reading a few chapters from my friend, the lovely Winter, who is in the process of writing her own book.
Love to all,
