We all have authors we love. Once you find an author who really hits your reading spot, you want to read everything by them. Sometimes you go a little author crazy and you follow them everywhere, facebook, twitter and so on. Have you ever after following an author, not liked the author as a person?
I am not going to name any names by choice, but there is an author who I read and loved her work. I have read every book she has written and at one time she was on my list that if she had a new release I would buy it. I am kinda picky about paying a lot for a book when I know if I wait a month or two I can get it a lot cheaper. So, this author was one of those. I had read their bio and felt like this person was a very like able person. I began following this person on facebook a while ago. I was almost shocked in some ways what this author posted and the things she would talk about. I had expected more "mom" stuff since she had young children, but instead there were a lot of pictures of her partying, talking about dieting even though she is dirt thin and so on. I know its not nice to judge, but its almost like she just shares too much. There are even a few pictures where you can tell she is just drunk.
So, I don't really care for her too much as a person, and this kinda effects how I feel about her writing. Normally I could sit with one of her books and just lose an entire day buried in the pages. There is no talk of another release from her since she has a movie coming out to one of her books, but I don't know that I would pre-order her book at this point to make sure I had my hands on it the day it came out. I almost feel that because I don't care for her as a person, what I think of her as an author has moved down.
Is this fair? Have you experienced anything like this?
