My haven't you I gotten sanctimonious in your old age? If money is just a sidebar to writing a good novel, why don't you sell your books for a dollar or 2 like some of the good upcoming authors do. I pay the price you ask because you are worth it, but if you don't need it why don't you give your readers a break? This comes after reading your comments at the end of Full Dark. With the prices you charge for books it made you sound rather hypocritical. I will continue to buy your books because you are the best author I have ever read. That doesn't make your comments any less hypocritical. I also did not appreciate your cheap shot at Sarah Palin, she believes in her point of view as much as you do in yours. Like most liberals you would rather you're opposition would just shut up and go away. If I can disagree with your politics like I do and still buy your books I think that makes me a little more tolerant than you. Your constant reader Fred T.
