You know me, dear blogees.  I’m not one to blow my own modest little brass trumpet.


Every once in a while a fan letter appears that just makes a person smile.

Which is what this one does. (The book in question, by the way, is Just In Case. I’ll explain it to him later.)

omg i love this book but it hurt my head. i didn’t even finish it there came a point in time where i was reading it at 4 am and i just got up and put it up. i felt confused and literally felt as if i was going insane and schizophrenic with justin. and i commend(?) you for this because only the best of authors can push me into a characters being and make them a part of me. i love your way of writing and how it throws the reader into the story. i also love your book how i live now. i believe you’re one of the almost nonexistent real authors.”

I always wanted to be a nonexistent mythical sort of  beast.

    I always thought that existence was one of those states that one could not be ‘almost’ in. Like pregnancy. The most incongruous phrase in this letter?….’i didn’t even finish it’. It’s from the grandson of e e cummings!

    Wonderful! You are not any old non existent author you are a real one. You should be very proud. Bless. It is a fabulous letter and it definitely made me smile. I wonder what he will make of THERE IS NO DOG.

    Wow, that is so brilliantly confusing, it makes absolute perfect sense. Good for him for writing it down.

    Is it me? I always picture you with bigger wings.

    I hope that all is well with you, you seem to have disappeared for a while? I suppose I am a “lurker” but your blog gives me a great deal of pleasure–as do your really inspired and original books. I am reading “There is no Dog” right at the moment.
