OK, question for you guys. What is the etiquette when someone positively reviews your book or work?online? Is it OK to say thanks? In the Comments, or in a private email (if you can find the address)? If other people say nice things or wonder about stuff in the Comments, can you respond to those with a Comment of your own?
I’ve done this both ways, and I’ve had people whose work I’ve featured contact me both ways, and I’ve never thought anything of it. But I’ve read/heard a couple of things recently that made me think perhaps it was unacceptable to say hi and thanks publicly, on the person’s blog. (Obviously, I would NOT respond to negative reviews, try to change people’s opinions,etc. Even I know better than that:>)
So, what’s your take on this? All advice, thoughts, and anecdotes welcome. Thanks!
