This week's topic was inspired by a post from C.L. Wilson earlier in May. She wanted to know if anyone has ever written an author to let him/her know that they didn't like their book.The idea that I should write an author and let her know that I disliked something she's written has never actually occurred to me. I've written and tweeted authors when I've fallen in love with one of their stories, but never when I've hated it. Occasionally I'll let a publicist know when I've really disliked something, but that feels less personal to me since they're not the ones who put their blood, sweat, and tears in to the story I didn't like.I've heard that Harris received a lot of nasty e-mails when she ended the Sookie series and that Hamilton had readers show up at signings and express their disapproval of the direction the Anita Blake series had taken. Personally, I would rather vent my frustrations through a review or on Goodreads. I don't think an author would ever apologize to me or agree to write something more to my liking, so I would just be wasting my time and theirs as well.
