An author's dream is that her work is received in a positive spirit and that what she has written can become of use or inspiration to her reader. This week I was delighted to received fan mail from a reader in Atlanta who is the Director of Admissions at Emory University. Her name is Allison Gilmore and the photos below are those of her copy of my book, Improv Wisdom complete with markings and bookmarks. I am thrilled with this. Here is part of the email she wrote:
I really appreciate the depth of her study of my book and of her taking the time to share this enthusiasm with me by sending these delightful photos. I am one lucky author! Oh, and I learned yesterday that Random House signed a contract with Apple to place 17 thousand of their titles (including Improv Wisdom into the bookstore at the Apple Store. So for only $9.95 you can instantly download a copy of my book onto your IPad or Mac computer or even your IPhone. Having the search function allows the reader to find a passage they liked. Thank you, Allison, for writing and sharing the photos. Good luck on your work teaching improv to others. Go girl!
