Dear Mr. Follett,
From time to time I used to read thrillers in English. I’ve never read one of your books before although my girlfriend has told me to do. Nevertheless I’ve just finished ‘Whiteout’ and need to tell you that it is one of the most thrilling book I’ve ever read. At times I’ve been worried about not to be able to read faster. Thank you for such a good thrilling adventure.

Best regards,

Hi Ken,
I have read every single one of your books including ‘Whiteout’. You truly are a master story teller and amongst the best. Thank you for providing myself and many other readers with such enjoyment.
Can’t wait for ‘World Without End’. Please don’t make me wait too long!

Dear Mr Follett,
Just wanted to say I’m pleased that you’re writing a follow up to ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ which is one of the very best books I have ever read. I voted for it in the ‘Nations 100 Favourite Books’ survey a couple of years ago and was pleased that many other people did as well and that it made the list. I have recommended it to many people over the years and not one has failed to come back to me to say it is a terrific read.

I think anyone who has read ‘Pillars of the Earth’ will read the sequel so I suggest you needn’t worry about its success. Thank you for writing such entertaining and enjoyable stories and rising to the challenge of writing a sequel to ‘Pillars’.

Hi Ken!
I guess you already know it but i have to say it myself, you are a very good writer and ‘A Place called Freedom’ will always be my favourite book. Keep on what you’re doing!

Hi Ken,
I would like to say that you write the best books. I’ve never been much of a reader, but when I picked up ‘The Third Twin’ for the first time, I could not put it down. After reading it I just knew I had to read all of your other books. And they are all good in their own right. You have a way of drawing the reader into the story right from the beginning to the end. I look forward to your works to come.

I found your ‘Masterclass’ very helpful. Thank you for putting together the information. I hope it can direct me to putting the ideas that I have into a outline format.
