I am often amazed that because authors choose to make themselves accessible on
the web, readers feel they can say anything to them in an email.
In my case, it means I get inundated with emails from people asking me to buy their series idea or read their scripts. I delete most of those (and occasionally post some of the best ones here). But I also get a lot of wonderful notes from readers and viewers… and those make me feel great, especially the flood of get-well emails I received after my accident last April.
It’s still amazing to me that I can read a novel and, in many cases, easily email the author directly and let them know how much I enjoyed their book. And it’s still a big thrill for me to get a reply back. I hope I never become so jaded that it stops feeling special.
