I’m going to go out on a limb and say that ALL authors enjoy hearing from readers. My heart leaps for joy every time I receive a message via email, on my blog or a DM from readers who recently read The Chronicles of Neffie. I receive more direct messages from readers compared to reviews left by them. I’m grateful for both. Here’s one comment that was recently left by a new reader who just finished reading The Chronicles of Neffie. As you may have already guessed, this made my day. It always does. 🤗
I started from the bottom as an independent writer with zero readers and with time, I have hand built a wonderful reader base that grows each and every day. I don’t write stories that are of the norm and that is what has helped me to attract new readers. I’m not afraid the tell my truths no matter how painful or uncomfortable it may be. Not only that, I refuse to “pad” or sugarcoat any of my stories that are inspired by those who came before me.
If it’s one thing my writing journey has taught me, it pays to be true to who you really are. Writing included. I have said since day one that I’m not your average writer and you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Until next time…
