Fan Mail: Better Than Caffeine
It’s one of those mornings when my brain won’t engage enough to get Mr. Coffee to cooperate. Which means it’s always the best possible time to get fan mail! This one comes from Rick in Tampa, Fla.:
“I ran across your book Crashers in the local Library last week. What a great find! I am half way through and can’t put it down. You are a master in the story development…”
[novelist’s note: “master of story development” on a morning when I can’t get Mr. Coffee to get his ass in gear. LOVE this guy!]
[novelist’s note: I’m sure Vince and Clive have big-ass, totally cool coffee makers that do their bidding. Probably voice-activated. I just beat mine with a spatula.]
“You have a real talent and I am so glad I went to your web site tonight and found you have a new novel out. I just placed it on hold. Does this new novel keep the same cast that are in Crashers? I sure hope so.
[novelist’s note: Yup. They’re back. Well, at the start of BREAKING POINT, anyway. Can’t promise everyone makes it to the end.]
“Dana, thank you for such terrific and exciting writing.”
See why I love fan mail? Rick from Tampa: I love you even more than that ungrateful bastard, Mr. Coffee.
