DO YOU NEED TO KNOW THE AUTHOR, BEFORE YOU KNOW THE WORK?

I admit to being a dinosaur in my thinking about many aspects of life.  I am living a God directed life and grateful for my personal relationship with Christ, my love of freedom, and my conservative values. I am committed to the Republic into which I was born, not the version of global socialism into which we are now heading.

 

One of the civilities of conservatism should be privacy, unless an author wants to share his/her personal life, there should not be demand for that kind of intrusion.  Today’s reading audience appears to want immediate intimate relationship with the author, they email or blog the author for personal information, photos and advice before they buy the author’s work and read it.

 

If you read the work first, meet the author through their work, then decide if this is a person you would like to know or from whom you want advice, you have taken a civil and reasonable approach to establishing relationship. This approach is likely to garner a more “real” response from the author, because now you have a basis for conversation.

 

I am amazed at the amount of time people have to spend answering, blogging, tweeting, texting, and face-booking in order to be “known”.   Whatever happened to being discovered?  I would much rather be working on the next book, or article, than spending time begging for acknowledgement and validation.

My book is published and available, I have a website and offer large excerpts of my work on the site, take the time to search and discover, if you like what you read the connection between us may become valued.  If we become friends after a time of emailing each other I will be happy to send you a signed autographed photo of myself, if you will do the same.

 

If an author writes a non-fiction or biographical book, much of what the reading public is looking for is likely to be revealed if the book is read first.  To judge the content of a book by “tweeting” or “blogging” with the author to decide whether you will read the work makes no sense.

 

Many times an author, who writes powerfully, could be a shy unassuming person in their private life, who wants his/her words to speak to a reader.  Choose a book with a subject and description that sings to you.  After you have read it, contact the author through their website and write an opinion or review.  Ask for a response if you want to talk to the author.  Civility and respect for authors and readers is paramount in establishing a literary relationship, or any relationship for that matter.

 

Time might be better spent asking the authors of school text books to present their profiles, photos and credentials before we purchase the volumes of information with which to teach our children.
