Is it creepy to love a person I’ve never met?

Lots of people assume that book reviews on Amazon are fake. Astroturfed, sock-puppeted, bought, friends-and-familied. One reason I have so few reviews is because I’ve waited for strangers to provide them.

So excuse me for going all loud and crazy when I read a review a few days ago for The Supermodel’s Best Friend. Among other great things, my new favorite person says this:

This story was fantastic, and literally had me laughing out loud in parts.

I know, I know, authors aren’t supposed to respond to reviews. But… sheesh, that one really made my day. Perhaps it makes me weak, but feedback like that is what has me opening up my latest work in progress and writing away as fast and well as I can. With a smile on my face.

Thanks. In spite of my love, unknown reviewer, I’ll keep a respectable distance. I promise.
