You've written and published a book. It might not be equal in fame to Harry Potter, but a lot of people have heard of it. Modest person that you are, however, you haven't revealed this in a public post on your LJ or in your userinfo. Still, you're curious as to what people think of it, so you decide to ask TQC.
1. If the response was generally positive, would you reveal you were the author, or just gloat privately? 2. If the response was generally negative, would you reveal you were the author? Would you pull an Anne Rice, suck it up, or flounce?
