Q&A Part 36: How does it feel to be read?

39 1 3

@ar1anna-ram asks: When I write a review (for a book I love) and someone says that they loved the book too and / or they've read it because of my words, I feel like being on the very top of the world... 

How does it feel to have such a successful series read all over the world (Across the universe), an amazingly vivid story that people enjoyed enormously (The Body Electric), and besides some other ones a new book that is highly expected by so so too many fans (A world without you)?


In some ways, it still doesn't feel real. I'm always a little surprised when someone tells me they've read my book. I sort of want to question them. Really? My book? You read it? 

But when I really think about it, it's just this overwhelming feeling of awe. When I was younger, this is all I ever dreamed my life would be. And it happened. There's something hugely, gloriously powerful about having a dream come true. It changes you. It makes you realize all the possibilities that exist in the world. It makes you have faith. It makes you happy in a way that you never thought possible. 

Because that's what this is: my dreams coming true. The fact that people read my words...it's like life to me. It really is the joy of my life. I'm so, so, so grateful for it. 

You make my dreams come true.
