Thursday Thoughts: Are Authors Obligated To Engage With Their Fans?

Musings of A Romance Junkie

Thursday Thoughts

So, Cocoa Fierce and I were chatting it up the other day as we always do, and one of the things we talked about was authors and their fans-specifically authors who do not interact with their fans on social media. Part of me feels like if I’m spending my money on your product, then you should at least acknowledge your fans in some way. But the other part of me is like, whatever, as long as you produce a great story consistently, then handle ya bidness…

I know social media can be a vicious cesspool of drama, but it’s also a wonderful way to connect and interact with your fans. I fangirl hard when I find an author whose book I’ve read and enjoyed has a Facebook page or twitter account. I jump right on it.

Sometimes you meet an author and they’re just so damn nice and friendly that you just want to hug them through your computer screen. I’ve met some authors who are some real beotches, but LaQuette (just LaQuette) is not one of them. She burst onto the IR scene last fall with her breakaway hit Heart of the Matter, and everybody was seriously asking “Who is this chick, and when is the next book dropping?” Well, behold! It is here (well almost, lol). Check out this delicious teaser, and if you haven’t already, pick up a copy of Heart of the Matter. It’s Book 1 in the Queens of Kings series, and you definitely want to read that one before diving into Divided Heart.

Please give these authors some consideration. Most are new for me, and I’ve been in this game (like I’m a writer lmao) for a minute. I L-O-V-E indie authors, and they deserve as much shine as those down with the big publishing houses. Anyway…get ya read on!!!
