A few days ago, I emailed a blurb request to a much admired author (and blogged about it here). Unfortunately, I received an email today from the author and she is unable to do it. Although it’s a disappointment, she did write me a very kind email explaining why she couldn’t commit to a blurb — it’s a matter of time. In general, authors are typically working on multiple projects at once. Some might also be employed full-time. Not to mention they have family obligations. I totally get this, even if I am a little bummed. Of course, I am no worse off than before AND I learned how to write a pretty good blurb request.
I am so appreciative that the author took the time to respond. (One author friend of mine said her blurb request went unanswered.) This author is definitely a class-act.
