An Open Letter to Authors

Dear Authors,

If you are reading this right now that means you actually clicked on my tweet. It still surprises me that I can post something and people actually read it, that I can connect to authors on a daily basis. You don't know who I am and probably never heard of my blog, but that's okay. I don't care if you know who I am because I know your books either mean the world to me or I still have to discover it. You guys work really hard every day to bring us wonderful books and I appreciate that so much. I wish you would know how much your books mean to me on or how much books mean to me in general. I can honestly say that your helped a girl who has very few friends find friends within your story. You helped a girl who had trouble finishing what she started finish something. You helped a girl who with anxiety and depression escaped her world and travel to another world. You helped a girl's imagination grow. You helped her find a community with people who loved reading just as much as does. You helped her discover book blogging. You helped her discover that she wanted to become an author just like you.  I'm 110% sure that I'm not the only one you helped.

Finding out that there is such a thing as a book blog was amazing not only can I connect with other people, but I can help out you authors. I can review your books and help someone else find out your book. It is a cool concept if you think about it, everyone in the bookish community helps each other out, even if we don't realize it.Anytime I speak to an author I always say I love being able you out because without you we wouldn't have a bookish community without you. I'm not sure how much you guys get thanked for writing, but thanks. Thanks for everything you have done and everything you will done.

From an avid reader,

I know this isn't a post that I normally would do, but I thought it was worth it. Also want to say thanks to the all the followers and bloggers out there. I love being able to have a chance to help someone find a new favorite book. If I can help someone discover reading and discover this world then its all worth it. I hope you guys enjoy reading this post I can't wait to see some reactions from this post. Thanks for reading, and remember keep searching for your Once Upon A Time.



  1. Wonderful post, Cheyenne. One that I can really relate to, as I'm sure many people in the book blogging community can relate to. Authors are basically my heroes, and I'm so grateful I have the opportunity to spread my love for them and their work and to connect with them!

    1. Thanks so much, I always say I'm not in it for having a lot of followers if I can help one person then I'm fine with that. I really glad I posted this post because it means a lot to me. I'm hoping everyone that reads this will react in a very positive way.

  2. Such a relatable post. If only I could write/email every author in the world, I would. I really want to thank each of them for bringing wonderful books into the readers' lives. :))

    1. Thanks, I 'm glad you enjoyed this post. I'm happy that people are finding this relatable. I was going to tagged some authors on Twitter, but I'm a little nervous doing that.
