This week I has something really cool happen with an author and it got me to thinking. I remember when I first started reading if you wanted to send a letter to the author you had to send it to the publisher who then would read it and maybe pass it along to the author. Now however almost every author has their own website, with a blog, an email, facebook and twitter, making connecting with the author that much easier.
We then spend copious amounts of time stalking them or their characters, and they let us. They want to know what we are thinking about them and their books.
But can this be difficult? Say one of these authors that you are friends with on FB and twitter and chat with all the time writes a book that no matter how hard you try you just can’t read it, and in fact hate it. Do you tell them the truth or do you lie and say that you liked it?
Because I am in that kind of mood one lucky commenter will get a package from me of yep you guessed it books.
