Although I am looking forward for you to read Snow White SORROW very soon, I can't express how much JOY certain emails bring me. I mean writing as a second job can be really exhausting but it's little things like two email I received recently that make feel like 'Wow. I never got response like this from anyone when I did my job which actually pays me really money.'
But it's not the money, it's the dumdi-dar-ra-rum-rum! and you know what that is? Appreciation and most importantly SHARING.
I've always wanted to make a weekly blogpost about Readers of the month or the week, but I couldn't because there so many kind readers to me who helped in every way possible, and when I made a list, it was too big. So I decided to start with two amazing woman/girls who sent me two lovely emails recently.
The first one is a 65 year old woman, who has a happy tone and voice in her writing you can't think but that she is much much younger. Her name is Sandy ( I will not mention family names ) and she did write me one the loveliest emails about 'I AM ALIVE' and how the book made her happy. I won't be saying everything in the email but it made my day that my writing made her so happy.
Last, but definitely not least, is Heather, who is disabled, but is a hundred times stronger and energetic than Decca. Heather wrote to me about how this book was one of the few that she connected with, and kindly compared me to other reputable writers that I can't dream to match at all. But what was so heartwarming about her email is that I could put a smile on her face with my silly words. Thank you Heather for the awesome email:)
So some things pay off in an unexpected way. I could have 1000 people hating my book, and only two of them liking it in that way. And believe me, that's more than enough.
And this brings me that I'm joining in with fellow Indelibles who host a blogfest called INDIE-giving. It's a chance for anyone and everyone to take a day on their blog to be thankful. join them if you like. Plenty of lovely authors there too. Each author is giving away books this week in that event ( I have given all my books free this month so I guess I will be spared lol )
Talk to you soon, Monster and Fairytales:)
