This is becoming a problem for me and I wonder if I'm being childest in my thinking. I've often written authors and told them how much I'm enjoying their novels and asked them questions about future additions to the series. Many times I get no response to these emails. Quite a few authors take a few minutes to send me a return email thanking me for reading their books and giving me a few spoilers about their future books. This quick response makes me enjoy their books more and angry at the ones who do not respond. Childest--Right? What do you guys think about no response from authors? Does it make you angry or do you take offense by it? Do you just shrug it off and go on merrily reading books by these authors?
Many of us here spend hundreds of dollars on books by authors and series we're interested in, often going without some things to be able to have the dollars to do so. We often wait months for the next book to come out to learn what happens next.
