How are you today? For real. Has anyone ever asked you how you’re doing, and you don’t tell them the truth? You might be going through something and, for whatever reason, when you are asked the question you answer generically. I do it all the time. My usual go-to answers are “fine” or “okay.” Of course, privacy is critical. You don’t want to go around telling everyone your private business, do you? I get it.
If you are one of my readers, or if you are new to my stories, my goal is the same; to have my words touch you in some way. It could be to entertain you, give you an escape from everyday life, or break your heart and put it back together again. I see you through the screen of the interwebs. Some of you have met me at a signing or book event. Nonetheless, no matter how we have connected, I’m happy to know that my writing has evoked some emotion from you. Maybe one thing about my characters resonates with something real in your life. If so, reach out. Leave me a message. PM me on FB. Come up to me at a signing and tell me how my words affected you. I love to hear from you. I really care about you—my readers—because you are a treasure to me.
