This seems like the most logical place to post this, considering building a fan base was one of my goals...
I checked my e-mail this morning and found this waiting inside my box:

dear scott,
hello. my name is aimee and i am 14 yrs old. i usually read aurthurs such as Dean Knootz but i found your book ' american haunting' and absolutley loved it. you are such a good writer and i would one day like to be like you. keep on writing because you are so rocking. i had to make an essay about a book and i wrote about american haunting... my favourite!
from aimee

It was the brightest point of my morning!
Just had to share...

That is so cool! Isn't amazing how the praise of a 14-year-old can make you feel on top of the world? I'm so happy for you! :snoopy:

Hey SJ, that's great! I'd print it out and frame it. Somehow when it comes from a 14 year old, that's the best. They can be the most unabashedly critical when it comes to what they like and don't like. No fence-sitting for them!

That's way cool!

Please tell me you wrote her back!

Of course I wrote her back! How could I not?
I told her that her message was the high point of my day and I thanked her so much for writing to me. What a wonderful feeling! :banana:
