I'm reading this AMAZING book right now, so of course I looked up the author. She has a blog, but...it's not that good. It has a weird, unappealing background, and she hasn't updated it in a month. In the FAQ section, she says that she doesn't reply to fan mail for months.
Whyyyyyyyyyyyy? I want to talk to her! Her book is wonderfully written! She says she has to pick one: writing a book or replying to a fan.
Again, I beg to differ.
You can write AND publish a book and still have cool social media and interaction with fans. Stephanie Morrill and Jill Williamson are published authors, and they both work to keep Go Teen Writers up and running. I wish Stephanie Morrill would update her blog more often, but at least Go Teen Writers always has something going on (like a contest. :O I entered! I can't wait for the results).
