I get plenty of emails from readers and most of them are very nice. I'd say 99%, in fact. Seems the world knows, for the most part, that if you can't say something nice ...
And that got me to thinking. I am well aware that not everyone likes every book. We have books we love and books we hate and books we could care less about. But it was her phrasing that got to me. This person has confused me with a character in my book. That particular phrase is something I don't think I have ever used in real life conversation. (And I'm not going to repeat it here for fear of incurring more wrath!)
me a murderer, either--which, by the way, would seem a lot worse than a snippet of dialogue. :-)
What do you think about this? Can you separate author from fictional characters who are sometimes not very nice?
All in all, it was an interesting email, one that I found more amusing than some mean reviews I've gotten!
