My Dear Future Readers,
I want to say something very important.
I believe that readers deserve respect. Readers make the books a success. But no matter what, the author works hard to make the books that the readers hold. Editing isn’t easy or fast. It takes time and thought to make the book sound good. Trust me, no one wants to read the first draft of a book that hasn’t been edited.
The authors, no matter how a large following they have, edit all their books. But writing and editing is only the beginning. Once you write, you need to show your work which is scary. Yes, then, once all the long edits are done, it takes some time for the cover and once that pretty cover is done you publish. That’s the scariest of all.
“What will my readers think?”
“Will my book sell?”
“Will my readers like my book?”
Trust me, after all that self-doubt is done, you begin again. The hardest part is starting over. But if your readers love you, they will stay.
I believe that authors who wrote multiple books are heroes who overcame their self-doubt. I am writing again which is why I think that doing this full time and writing books is what makes authors heroes. They never stop at one book. They build on that one book and go farther.
And in turn readers should be celebrated. For all the love that they show. If you read a book you like, tell the author, thank you for working so hard to write it. Trust me, authors are people too and they have feelings too. Books take time but a simple thank you makes us, authors want to write more.
These kinds of readers are beautiful to the author. I want to thank my own group of readers for staying with me for so long because I wouldn’t be here without them. I would not even be an author if I didn’t have a reader following me. My future readers are an awesome group of people who support me so much. I love them.
I want to say thank you to all my readers. I feel so much love from them in times of stress and doubt. They make me want to keep going. I always write new things for them. Because I love that that my readers, even though my book isn’t out yet, support me and encourage me to keep writing.
Readers are the best support in the world and I am proud to be a part of the author community because I always fel so much love from authors as well. No other career is as rewarding as being an author.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
