As many people do, in December of 2016 I wrote a letter to J. K. Rowling. I thought since I have a middle grade novel coming out soon, it would be nice to touch base with (IMO) the best author in the genre. You can’t win if you don’t try, right? I didn’t know if I would receive a letter back, and was certain it would not be a personal letter, though I had a tiny inkling of hope. Well, I was correct, I did not receive a personal letter back; however, I did receive a letter and an added information sheet. So, leading up to the release of my book “The Tales of Christian Tompta: GNOMELING” on March 31, 2017, I thought I would share the letter and info with you here.
I must say that butterflies erupted in my stomach when I saw the postmark from Scotland (the best place in the world), and it took me a few minutes to open the letter. I was both disappointed and happy at the contents – it is addressed to me, after all! Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I relate the additional info contained on the “Information Sheet.”
