I recently received an email from a friend who passed on a message about my novel, Never Waste Tears. What an amazing gift she gave me to take the time to let me know how she felt.
Since I try to evoke emotion in my writing, I was especially pleased to read "I was so upset that I put the book down and paced around the house."
I cannot reveal the whole email because it contains a few spoilers, but later in the email she wrote, "But I finished the book and I have to say I forgave Gloria for..." that's the spoiler part.
Later, she added, "I can tell Gloria put a lot of thought into the book. I would be the first in line to read a sequel if she writes one." And, "I LOVED the book! Please tell Gloria that I absolutely loved it."
Thank you for letting me know (through a friend) that I'm forgiven, and that you loved Never Waste Tears. My life is always brighter when I hear from my readers.

Country girl from Lincoln County Kansas, author Gloria Zachgo wanted to be a mother, an artist, and a cowgirl as a child. She worked as a nurses-aid for a while as a teenager, but finally chose to go to business school. She joined a writing group about 12 years ago and wrote a few memoirs and fictional stories, later challenging herself to write a manuscript, her debut novel, The Rocking Horse. She loves being able to take others on her journey through writing, which she describes as an unknown adventure through uncharted territory. As an author, she says it is important to let others help you learn, to keep writing and find your own unique voice. Gloria also loves gardening and painting. Read full interview...
