I received the following message this morning from a woman who purchased “Weathercock” —
“Oh Melissa, we are loving your book!! My husband finished reading it within two days, he just couldn’t put it down! His comment was, when is her next book being published because I want more!!! Lol! I, on the other hand like reading slowly and savoring the words of a well written book! You are Amazing! I hope your sales are going well! Keep us posted!”
This is a writer’s bread and butter. The compulsion to write is a thing that cannot be ignored. But to have someone — particularly someone you don’t know — respond enthusiastically to what you’ve written — AH!
