My First Fan Letter for Published Work

The day started off inauspiciously, with a small auto accident. I scraped a woman’s mirror, and I have called to get it taken care of. Ironic that I have an accident when my facilities are at the best they’ve been while I’ve been driving for a while.

Coming up VERY soon: Horus. Utena. Iron Man.


But I have to post this, which is the first letter I’ve ever gotten from a fan for a published work. I will reproduce it as accurately as I can, and since it’s from a 10-year-old, well, there will be misspellings. I am charmed and humbled at the same time.

Dear Catharine,

Thank you for sending the book Hulk Herclease. It was great and fantastic. I liked most of the charcters which were Tony, Leo, Nonna, and Hanah. I think that it would be great for this book to be a movie because it atracting people kids, udults to watch the movie. Anyways, thanks for the book. My friend is very interested in this book.

From, Abdul
