Two things recenty got me thinking of author safety. First, the recent shooting in Arizona, and second, an author friend who recieved some scary emails from a reader.
Many of us are trying to get published (and a bunch of my blog followers are), but becoming an author buys a step into a spotlight. We could be watched and regarded by thousands of strangers, some with unbalanced mental states.
Are you ever afraid to become an author? Do you ever wonder if you will fear your readers/fans?
I know I'm just being paranoid, but in this day and age (sadly) it's not a bad thing to look over your shoulder.
Also, please take a moment to welcome our newest Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog sister, Sarah Fine who'll be blogging about her 2011 Writing Goals. Go Sarah! And stay tuned for next week's post by Deb Salisbury.
