When a book is released you never know how it's going to be received. At first, you just hope and pray your regular readers will like it and maybe a few more will try it out. But you can't predict anything. And each book seems to have a life of its own. I spend a lot of time promoting books, but I'm not one of those in-your-face authors who is hocking his books on every single social network in the universe. I don't want to come off looking insincere, and I don't want people feeling awkward, and I honestly don't have time. Besides, I've been around long enough to know that over-promotion really irritates people in the long run.
But with MY FAIR LADDIE, I've been inundated with e-mails from readers commenting on how much they enjoyed the book. This sort of thing happens once in a while with certain books and it's always a nice surprise when it comes so unexpectedly. I usually receive e-mails from readers all over the world, especially with THE VIRGIN BILLIONAIRE. But this time, with MY FAIR LADDIE, I've been swamped with nice comments and positive remarks.
And I'd like to thank everyone up front for taking the time to comment. I will get back to each and every reader individually. It may take a week or so. But I will get back. And for those who requested signed book plates, I'll get them out as fast as I can.
