The authors you think are so “big” that they have become celebrities— they’re real people. They have real lives and real pain, just like you do. Please remember this when you interact with authors either in real life or online.

When authors see a nasty review, they cry…

I grew up wanting to be an author more than anything else and I assumed they all had charmed lives where they never had to worry about mundane stuff. And even though I am a writer and I should no better, sometimes I am still guilty of thinking that way about writers I really love and do not know.
