The word on the street is it’s not cool for authors to go sending messages to readers on Goodreads and/or Amazon or other online stores. A lot of times, after reading a flattering and/or interesting review, I’ve wanted to reach out but have held back. I’ve wanted to thank readers for reading the book, giving me a chance, picking up the next book, telling their friends, or thank them for whatever it was they wrote in their reviews. However, the last thing I want to do is annoy someone or freak them out by showing up unannounced in their inbox.
But if you’ve come here to see what I have to say, I’m taking the gloves off: thank you all! You rock!
