You Know You’re a Real Author When…

…someone writes fanfiction of your series. Okay, so it was my sister who wrote the fanfiction, but hey! Still! I have my very own fanfic! She showed this to me back when she wrote it, and recently posted it on her website. I really enjoyed giving it another read-through. I’m a big, well, fan of fanfiction, so to have some…
