Writing is solitary, so it’s easy to forget that an audience is out there waiting for the book – until you get a wonderfully encouraging email from a complete stranger! Thanks to Julia Kosier of Wisconsin for this wonderful message.
I just read Queen Elizabeth’s Purse and I just wanted to tell you how much I adored it! Getting a behind-the-scenes look at the biography was exciting, of course, but what I really fell in love with were your writing style and your observations on London. You have such a wonderful way with words, and I found myself relating to a lot of your thoughts, though I’ve never actually been to London. The zine really left me wishing I could go on a trip overseas – and this is coming from someone who typically frets about travelling to the other side of the state.
Plus, I have to love anyone who can talk about Richard Hunt and the Sex Pistols in the same sentence.
Thanks Julia! Your check is in the mail!
