In my quest for answers about publishing abroad, I decided to post a comment on Anne Rice’s Facebook wall (yes…THE Anne Rice) to see if any of her myriad followers might be able to help me. What I didn’t expect was to have the more-than-famous author respond to me directly.
I was floored.
Though she wasn’t able to shed too much light on the subject (having teams of people who do these things for her), she was kind enough to point me in the general direction of where I might be able to find answers, and for that, I was grateful.
I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank her for her kindness, her accessibility to her fans, and her written word. I also want to applaud her for using her fame and status to address issues that are controversial in nature on her Facebook page. So many shy away from the harder questions/issues in life because of how polarizing opinions can be, but she is willing to attack them head on, without fear of the consequences or ramifications. It takes a brave soul to do that.
Thank you, Anne, for being such a class act.
