On a writer’s forum that I frequent, there’s currently a thread about family – unsupportive family. Parents, siblings and cousins that just don’t get the whole writing thing, keep asking when the writer is going to get a “real job”, have never read any of the writer’s books, and just generally unsupportive.
My family is the opposite. They’re great. They’ve all read my first novella. My mother bought 7 copies of it – one ebook and six paperbacks to give to various older family members who were all quite thrilled. My siblings were among my first readers – my brother even bought two paperbacks so he could give one to his mate. My Dad who hadn’t read a book since the 1990’s, downloaded mine and sat on the beach and read it in two hours. He’d previously warned me that it might take him a while to read it, but once he started he said he couldn’t put it down.
So, thank you for being awesome, oh family of mine.
