As a self-proclaimed “Indie” Author not only do I think it important to gain an audience to support your books but it’s just as important to stay in touch with them especially when your audience start becoming your Fans. And as embarrassing as this might sound, or in the words of Jerry Maguire: “A pride swallowing siege”, “Fans”, along with genre enthusiasts, are the ones who TRULY make it possible for indie author’s like myself to push forward in writing through sales, reviews and comments.
So as Fans take the time [out of their busy schedules] to read and comment on my work, I think it only fair to extend the same courtesy. So as of today – or whenever I see a comment or a complaint or question arise – I will start responding, good or bad. So expect to see more of me!
And in the grand of quote traditions, particularly from one of my all-time fave women/actresses, and a quote I tend to live by and all Authors should:
“You expect me to ignore my fans; they’re life and death to me, Baby! They’re the ones who really MADE ME!” ~Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest
~ Devlin De La Chapa
