I befriended someone on this site because this person and I share an interest in similar books.  Recently, in an email, this membr told me her real identity and I had an "OMG!!!!" moment.  I truly had no clue who she was until I saw the proof.  She is a published author and the author of one of my favorite books.  I gush about that book all the time.   What a small world!  I'm thankful I "met" her through PBS.

That is just fabulous! I've met some great people here and struck up friendships but haven't had an OMG moment...I am very happy for you.

That IS cool!  But I've wondered sometimes if there are authors here under pseudonyms who read negative comments about their books!  I guess it's all part of the game, like getting a bad review somewhere.

There are authors here on PBS!  I've met a few in the forums.

If I were an author, I would be interested in seeing what "real people" think of their work. And why shouldn't authors want to share books just like we do!

That's awesome!

Once I posted a somewhat scathing comment of a book I've read and the author PMed me about it a few months later! She was nice about it though and I invited to the DOS chat and she stopped by a few times and even gave away some books to some of the other ladies.
