Most writers receive fan mail. It
various from week to week as to the number of emails I receive. I always try to
reply to a reader. It is not an easy thing to write an author. Someone who makes
that effort deserves to hear back.
People write for any number of
reasons. Ever so often a writer receives an email from a reader that reminds him
of that some good can from writing a book. To instill the love of reading has to
be one of the best rewards any author can earn.
Dear Mr. Moore,
Hello! My name is Cliff. I
am 15 year old and live in British Columba, Canada. I just finished your novel
"God of Darkness" and wanted to tell you that I really loved it. I
think you are an awesome writer and can't wait to read more of your work. I'm
honestly not much of a reader and it normally takes me a long time to actually
finish a novel, but I read "God of Darkness" in only five days. That is
a record for me! Your writing really grabbed my attention and made me want to
continue reading. I'm actually kind of shocked that I could get so much
enjoyment out of reading. I want to thank you for that!
Anyways I was wondering if
it would be possible to get an autographed bookplate? Or would it be possible to
send you my copy of "God of Darkness" and have you sign it? I'm not
sure how it works, but I could send you a money order or a self addressed
stamped envelope if you'd like. Just let me know. I'd truly consider it a great
honor to have your autograph!
