OK, just had to share. Last night I got my first fan mail!
Someone picked up the ARC of The Emerald Tablet at TLA, read it, liked it not only enough to finish it but also to take the time to send me an email telling me so.
And, really, yes, this did make my day.
So here's my question. When you read a good book, do you email the author to let them know? I go through phases where I do. Sometimes I get replies, and (hard to believe) sometimes I don't. Not that it matters. If I liked it, it's worth telling the author.
