Incredible compliment for a writer

I am so honored, excited, and thrilled! A reader created fan art for Scars! And it’s beautifully done, too, depicting a scene early in the book. Just…wow. (beaming) That is such an incredible compliment for a writer to receive. As are all the wonderful, wonderful reader letters I receive! I love hearing that Scars has moved people.

Have you ever drawn fan art for a book? Ever sent a letter to a writer? If you have a favorite book, you might want to consider doing so. Authors love to hear from our readers!

    Oh, I love it! That’s awesome. When I was growing up, I drew a lot of fan art as my mom read aloud to me, but I never sent it to the authors. I feel a bit egotistical for admitting it, but it’s actually one of my greatest wishes that when my book comes out readers will make fan art for it!

  2. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    Lisa, that’s so cool that you drew fan art for books your mom read you! And there’s nothing wrong with wanting that for your own book. It’s a lovely feeling.

    How nice for you!

    I never wrote to authors as a child (wish I had), but now I love to send notes of thanks and good wishes whenever the urge strikes. As part of the writing community, I think we all like to hear from one another, no matter what stage of the journey we are in.

  4. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    Thanks, Amanda.

    I’m glad you send notes to authors now! I try to, too, sometimes, or blog about them or write a review; it’s so lovely to know when your work is appreciated.
