As a literary creation that sprang from an author’s imagination, I have a unique perspective on the world of authors, their books, and the people who read them. Most readers have no idea how insecure the average author is. Heck, if left to her own devices, author Lois Winston, she who writes about me, would hole herself up in her writer’s cave and never come out! Every so often her muse and I have to resort to blackmail to coerce her into stepping out into the sunshine and actually interacting with the rest of the world. The power of a well-timed threat is an amazing thing!
Most readers also don’t realize how important reviews are to authors. If you read a book and enjoy it, please take the time to post a review to your review site of choice. You’ll make an author’s day!
