Goodreads asked John R. Cobb:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

John R. Cobb In my case, it certainly isn’t fame, fortune, and fawning adulation. At this point, I guess the best thing for me is having an actual book in hand to touch and smell. Yes…I like the aroma of a newly printed book. Just wish the toner tasted as good… And, it’s always a treat when a new reader emails and says how much he or she enjoyed the story. Oh…and finding a favorable review on Goodreads… Hopefully, fame, fortune, and fawning adulation aren’t much farther in the future. ;-)
