This Is Why I Enjoy Writing Fiction

Profile Photo (Cropped)Just recently, I received a couple of very nice emails from one of my readers, which came at the perfect time because I was feeling a bit depressed. I thought I would put together a quick post to share these with my subscribers. 

These emails (shared with her permission) are regarding my horror/thriller Devil’s Nightmare:

Email #1:

Started reading your book. More than half way done already. It’s so good I don’t want to put it down.

I have to thank you for getting me reading again. I use to read a book a day. But in February and March of this year, I had cataract surgery done on my eyes (doctor said I was very young to be getting them). So since the 60’s, I don’t need glasses anymore. It’s so hard to get use to seeing with real eyes. I do need reading glasses though and was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to do it. But because you getting this book, I gave it a go and now I know I can do it!!!

Email #2

I finished the book last night. It was excellent!!! I haven’t read a good horror story in years. I couldn’t put it down last night because I had to find out how it ended. I use to love Stephen King but he started to have so many characters in his books that I found it hard to keep track of them all.

Also, I never wanted to read a book on my tablet because I always wanted the physical book to read from. But after reading your book, I find it a lot better. I think the illuminated screen helps me see the words better.

You have my permission to use my note and I’m happy it helped you too. You are a gifted writer. Keep up the writing!

This, my friends, is one reason why I enjoy writing fiction. I love my readers! Enjoy your weekend!
