The Invisible Connection

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”  — J.D. Salinger

I just want you to know that when my book becomes available (very soon BTW) and you want to be my friend after you read it…I am so there.

  1. I soooooo get this. It’s funny how I’ve received feedback from people I didn’t expect to hear from and haven’t heard a word from those I expected (wanted/thought I needed) to. Strangers are sometimes more reliable than friends. 🙂

  2. I think gaining new friends after publication is a beautiful thing. In general, it means they actually enjoyed your work and it’s not just a matter of reciprocity. 😉

  3. Having a blogging friendship with a writer and being able to talk to them about their book is an unexpected bonus of entering the blogosphere isn’t it? Of course the pressure is on then, isn’t it! 😉

    My kids got a book for xmas (well, many, but ‘a book’ for the purposes for this story) and they enjoyed it immensely. My sister knew the author through work, so I sent her an email with messages from the kids telling her what they loved about it knowing she could pass it on. I got an excited email back from the writer thanking the kids for their encouragement. It made the kids day, and apparently the writers day too 🙂

    1. One of the things that is most exciting to me about publishing, writing, books, etc. is that with today’s tech, connecting authors and readers is easily accomplished. Perhaps if J.D. had had a Facebook page, ha ha…
