I officially got my first piece of fan mail tonight. One of my established fans on ff.net found out about my commercial stories and scooped up a few. They sent me a complimentary email this evening.

I can't decide whether to have it engraved on a gold plaque, or carved into a granite monument. what do you all think?

Do both, then frame it. It's the first of many fan letters to come! =D

Why would you stalk your first fan????


But as tesknota said do both. Carve it into granite then gold plate it.

Neato there.

Congrates RC! It is soooo nice to get positive feedback. I made book one of my sci fi series free on Smashwords and people not only have been downloading it, but I now have eight 5 star reviews with some very encouraging responses. The only problem --- more people are wanting book 3 ASAP. I thought I would avoid being pressured to write by E-publishing, no deadlines, etc - nope. Now I feel like I really need to put the pedal-to-the-metal and write like a crazy person to finish book three. If only I had the gift of writing, as I still fight for most every page. Have fun with your cudos and let it bolster you to keep going. And again congrates. KT

Dang. Fan mail is cool---I got a pretty good amount of it for my Internet Fan Fiction.

It's gratifying to find out that somebody out there actually likes something you wrote---you don't get that feeling with a form-letter editorial rejection.

Thanks all.

I have gotten a fair amount fo fan mail before, for my amateur work. But this is a first for my commercially published fiction. Definitely a first for my first novel. I can't help it:)

Appreciate the support. Thanks.
