only connect

One of the great things about being independent is that I talk directly to my readers. There’s no third party between the reader and me. They simply email me and ask me stuff, and I respond. I get people from every part of the world contacting me, and the questions they ask are often really interesting and thught provoking. Sometimes they have theories about my stories that really surprise me – and I think maybe they have more insight than me.

I recently got into a conversation with a teacher from Chicago whose English class acted as critical readers when I was first writing Dealer No. 1. That was some years ago but we’re keeping in touch.

Despite my reluctance to get involved in the world of social media (apart from this website and the extremely occasional interview), I do love the freedom, the connection and the lack of gatekeepers the internet provides.
