THE THIRD KINGDOM

Dear friends,

On the publication of THE THIRD KINGDOM I wanted to take this opportunity to talk with you on a more personal note. I really love this book, and I’m profoundly gratified to hear how much you are enjoying the story. Thank you for reading. I had a blast writing it, and I am already working hard on the next one. I know that everyone is as eager as I am for the story to continue, so my goal is to have the next book come out roughly a year from this one. You have my word that I will work very hard to make that happen.

I especially want all of you to know that I do read almost every one of the comments you post here. There are many times when I’m frustrated because I wish so much that I could answer all of your questions. Your words of encouragement make me feel very humble. There are a great many posts that have made me ache to write a long response, to share things with you, to tell you how much your words have meant to me, or to simply reassure you. There are times when I am deeply touched to read heartfelt stories of how much the books have meant to you. I don’t think I could ever express how immeasurably your words have moved me. I have nearly been brought to tears, both of gratitude and of sorrow, by some of your stories. I’ve wished I could answer them all, but there are so many, and so much I’d like to say, that I would never get another book written.

You make it possible for me to keep writing these stories, to keep writing about the lives of these characters and to keep sharing their world with you.

I write these books, but they can only happen because of you, because you value and appreciate them, because you read and then recommend them. My greatest joy in writing is being able to bring people some enjoyment. I can only do that because I have so many wonderful readers who would support me and my stories. So I wanted to take this time first of all to say thank you for being here, for letting me know, and for letting yourselves have some fun reading. That’s what it’s all about.

But if I am to be able to continue bringing you books, it’s vitally important that I have your help.

The biggest thing you could do for me, the most help you could give, is to spread the word by posting and sharing your positive reviews for THE THIRD KINGDOM where the most readers will see it; on websites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads. It doesn’t have to be any more complicated than “I loved the book!” Just say a bit of what is in your heart, or simply share what you’ve already posted here, to tell others so that they will know as well. 

I encourage you to continue to comment on this page, and rest assured I will continue to read your messages, but it would mean a great deal to me as an author if you shared your recommendations for my work. Those people who sell books are the life blood of an author. If others don’t know that a book is worth reading, they don’t buy it. I want to continue writing as long as I live, and you can help by taking a moment to post a good review. Please, do it now, and help us all continue to have these books.

You will find links for THE THIRD KINGDOM on my website:
http://www.terrygoodkind.com/

And remember, heed this call for all of the things that you enjoy. You should never shy from posting a positive review in support. Staying silent means your world will inevitably have less of the things that you love. Books die with silence or they can only live with your support.

Your voices are the steel against steel. You are the ones who protect authors and lift us on your shoulders so that we can do our jobs. Come over the hill, swarm these retailers with your support, and show them how much your voice matters. Show them your numbers and your power.

I am forever grateful for you and for the opportunities I have to share and connect with you. I hope you will do your part and continue to make this possible.

Thank you for imbuing my books with your strength.

Terry Goodkind
