Facebook has been a pleasant surprise for many reasons. I get to keep up with my family, I've reconnected with friends from college and high school, I can see what my writer friends are talking about and what their release are and best of all, I can be friends with folks who read my books.
I'm sure back in the dinosaur age before computers and the Internet, writers got plenty of "fan mail." I do get an occasional hand-written note and that is is very special, but the instant connections on the Internet are what we have in this day and age. It's all good.
How many of you have gotten a gift so special, so thoughtful, that you have never forgotten it? Talk about it!
