I've done it several times but it wasn't until the other day that I realised how much an author appreciates this type of letter.
A friend (who rarely reads any sort of fiction book) sent this one to me.
Hi there, dear Kylie,To know that something you wrote evoked such powerful memories and feelings is one of the reasons why I love to write.
I have reached chapter 21 [in VENGEANCE BORN]. Chapter 20 was a great reminder of a special moment many years ago. Thank you for taking me back.
It's hard to explain such a personal subject but since my back pain has been such a problem, moments like those are a memory, feelings that is. Your words stirred them up again.
I haven't read any further as yet as I'd like the feeling to remain in my mind awhile and not get re-lost in life's problems.
I do hope I've made sense. It's my way of saying a big thank you. So when I see you again in person you may just have to get a major big hug. ♥ :)
