Writing a fan letter was far from anything I've ever done before. It felt weird. Fun, but weird. And now, it goes without saying, that I'm so glad I did! Seriously, everyone, sit down and write that fan letter you've been thinking about! I need to think who else I can write to!
Anyway, I feel sometimes like I overdo the fan girl thing regarding this author, but I couldn't NOT share this last interaction! So, hopefully you'll excuse me while I happy dance all day long. :) This guy continues to show that not only is he a brilliant author, but also a genuine nice guy who cares about his fans and that he's a real guy who struggles with things... like getting this next book done! And in no way do I think I'm singled out and "special" or something, because you'll see if you look at his Twitter feed, he responds and thinks up a personal thing to say to everyone who mentions him or his books on Twitter. But that being said, it sure does make one "feel" special anyway. Know what I mean?
So yeah... I just had to share. Now back to your regularly scheduled blog posts........
