Unless you write best-sellers, like Stephen King or J.K. Rowling, writers don't get much feel-good feedback, other than at autographings and, increasingly, on social media. Even most editors don't say much beyond what they want you to write and when it is due. But every once in a while a reader will take the extra step to reach out to you personally and let you know how much they enjoy your work. One such letter I received was back in 2006, when I wrote reviews for the Comics Buyer's Guide. Needless to say, it made my day. Yeah, he wanted me to review his magazine for CBG, but it was still a nice letter to receive.
Here's that letter, written on some nifty Superfriends stationary. Click on the images for a closer look.
