So this morning I posted a few thoughts on Anne Rice's new book, "The Road to Cana". Didn't think much of it. Random youth pastor in nowhere, IL writes a random blog post. Said some things I liked, and some things I didn't like. So?
Then I received a comment on my blog. From who? Anne Rice. Holy cow. Really? Surely it's just a fan, posting on her behalf...(warning, you're about to see how nerdy I can get)
Checked Google analytics to see where my few visitors were from this morning...one IP Address was from near Palm Desert, CA.
So I checked the book cover to see where she's from: Rancho Mirage, CA How far is that from where the signal came from?
Looks like it's legit, folks. Which was a big shocker to me.
Authors are actual humans who interact with the rest of us, and listen to feedback from regular people? Wow. For some reason I don't think all authors are like this.
Anne, if you for some reason read my blog twice....thanks for the comment, and for reading my thoughts. I really enjoyed the first 2 books, and am looking forward to the 3rd installment as well.
Someday, when I publish my amazing best-seller....I'll have to let you blog about the part you didn't like too. haha....seriously though...thanks for being real. It's encouraging.
