About my libraryMy library is currently in flux...between losing my teaching job, gaining the job of Mommy-to-Be, and taking a leave of absence from my new home state of Florida, I really don't know what's going on!

Not sure if you remember me or not, but you reviewed my novel, Dirty Little
Angels, a while back. I'm writing because I'm almost done with my new novel, In
the Valley of Falling Stars, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in
taking a look at it and giving me your opinion. I can send you a complete
summary, but it's essentially about a mentally-ill man living in post-Katrina
New Orleans who becomes convinced that his wife is pregnant with Jesus Christ.
The book is still in process, but the entire book is sketched out, and I
currently have eight chapters that I feel are done. If you're too busy, I
understand. Just thought I'd ask.

Hope you're doing well,

Simply reaching out to give you a hug. I'm so sorry about the passing of your beloved pet.

I know this hurts deeply.

I am just double checking to make sure that you got the book, “King of the Forest” that I sent you. Please be sure to add the book to your Library Thing list and post your review.


tell me about the mystical succumber part. better yet, do you have any mystical succumber books?

Hi, This time last year you won a copy of my book Flight of the Hawk on Member Giveaways. I was wondering how you liked it, and if you are planning on reviewing it as requested.
Hi MissTeacher,

Nice to meet you. Did you get a chance to go to Durham's recent public library sale? Also, NC State's library is having their annual book sale starting today (general public can go tomorrow). I have to stay away from the latter as I have done too much damage this month :(
Hi and thank you for your friendship invitation which I have gladly accepted. I think we share an interest in historical fiction, crime/mysteries and probably any other well written book. I just got home after a weekend away across the line in Bellingham, Washington. Of course my American weekend wouldn't be complete without a visit to at least one bookstore, now I have to add my purchases to my ever-growing TBR shelves. See you on the threads. Judy
Thanks for letting me know! I hope you enjoy the book. The author is very enthusiastic and seems very nice, it is unfortunate it turned out to be just the kind of fantasy I haven't got the patience for. I'd love to hear what you think of it when you have the chance to read it.

I just now found your reply...
and cleaned out my messages so it doesn't happen again.
Also I have been very distracted recently, having lost a friend last week..

I am so glad to hear that things are going well for you :)
You have been much on my mind....

You have a loft?!?!?! fabulous!
I hope all goes well for yoou with work..
fingers crossed..
Take care and keep in touch....


Well, hey right back to you, fellow Tar Heel and teacher --- but (you may not have noticed), I'm retired!
Just want to wish you a speedy recovery with that eye of yours. I will be thinking of you.
I just wanted to drop by and say I appreciated your review of People of the Book! I picked it up to glance at it a week or so ago, but the back cover, for some reason I can't remember, made me think I wouldn't enjoy it. Now, I'll be picking it up :) It amazes me how so many of the books I love sound incredibly unappealing from the back cover synopsis, and how often those synopses sometimes just don't do their job at all!
Thanks, I have never read any james joyce B4 so It should be a treat , thanks for the giveaway.
I loved The Sound of Building Coffins as well. Whatever he writes next, I'll be waiting in line for it!
Ah! The wonderful 42. I can end my quest now ;-)
Hi again,

Your review made perfect sense to me :) It's the kind of book, I think, where the kind of review that attempts to put across a synopsis isn't too helpful. A more emotional, gut reaction tells much more about the book -- which is exactly what you did.

Anyway, thanks again, so much for your kind words. And yes, you've made my day twice in a row now!

all best,
Re your question in "Go Review ...", the simple way is just to paste in the link which you find in the address bar of your browser while you're looking at the page you want to link to, or can get by a right click on a link and select "copy link address" or similar from the menu in most browsers. For tidier possibilities with a bit more effort, see the hints in user Noisy's profile.
Hello Miss Teacher --

I just finished reading your review of my novel, "The Sound of Building Coffins," and wanted to tell you that you have made my day.

I'm so glad that you liked it, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for telling people about it. It's people like you who make this often-scary-and-intimidating publishing business a happier place to be.

Thanks again - and all best wishes from New Orleans,


Love the little kitten pic :)
It made me want to go to LOLcats to look..
so I rudely stole your idea and put a catpic on my profile...

have a wonderful, easy, happy weekend

This is the note I got from an author

Esta -- thank you so much for the incredible review of A Wall of White -- I'm very glad you enjoyed the book and really appreciate your glowing feedback. I particularly love that you singled out Bridget for recognition -- what an amazing dog!

Are you still here?

Hi! Jose Buendia is not my name, just a tribute to One Hundred Years of Solitude, one of my favorite novels.

Hello again,
Bel Canto is a terrific book!

Yup! Your picture makes me laugh every time I see it.

By the way (just so you don't think that I'm calling myself pretty) - my name (JolieLouise) is in reference to a song by a Canadian music producer/artist - Daniel Lanois. I love him and, though Jolie Louise is not my favorite song of his, have used that name online for years.

I had a friend who taught ESL for awhile. I think I would enjoy that. I love languages and I really enjoy people from other countries. Do you like it?
Pretty Pam (just kidding :))
Your picture is hilarious!
