I was so excited to see your new book out! I just ordered it, and can't wait to read it!
Noticed you liked As I Lay Dying, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:


Your profile was featured on the LT main page, and I got curious..."Foop!" is an interesting-sounding book, "Lick Your Neighbor" is a hilarious title, and your profile pic made me laugh out loud. Thanks for brightening an otherwise unpleasant morning!

The other day I found a copy of Foop! used.

Send me a copy of Foop! :)

(I can never find it anywhere...used...)
Waiting for your third book! :) I'm giving Foop! a second read this month..
Thanks for writing it :)
Wow, feedback from an author. That's pretty cool. I see you've got a couple more things in the works. I'll be on the lookout for them.
