Thanks, that's very kind of you to say so.
You are right on about talented writers not getting recognition and "holy crap" this garbage writing making the author all this money.
That's a really cool review Jll! Thank you for taking the time to write it up. 25 days will the release of "Caszandra", so you won't be kept on tenterhooks too long. ;)
Thanks Jll! Your comment is great motivation for me to hurry up and get Part 3 out!
Glad you're enjoying it Jill. :) Cass is one of those characters who keep on plugging away, perhaps because stopping is more daunting than going on.
Once again, I am just very thrilled you think so Jacqui! That would be lovely indeed! As for who would play them, I actually wrote it very much from a "screen" perspective and would love for it to be a movie series. It would have to be quite young, unknown actors playing the kids, but I have very clear ideas of what they look like. And I DO have ideas for who could play the DADS, but I'm not saying! LOL!!! I hope to be posting some artwork in the next few months, and there is something else attached to the book I am not releasing yet... All the extras will be on the main website which I hope to overhaul soon. :D Thanks again for your encouragement. I appreciate it so much!
I am so thrilled you liked my book! And thank you for the wonderful review on your blog. I would like to link to it from my blog if that's okay. We'd also appreciate using the review on the websites (the book's and publisher's) when we update them (we can include the address of your blog. I will wait for your permission to do that.)

And I miss the characters too - though Dave has a bad habit of waking me up early in the morning! I hope to resume writing the second novel soon. It's all planned out, just waiting for me to settle down and fill in the details!
I'll stay in touch. Thanks again!
Thank you Jacqui! And I'm SO glad you are enjoying it!
Thanks! I'll certainly be reading your upcoming reviews. (I've had the opposite problem with WordPress, btw. I can't seem to keep people from posting comments on old reviews - like after contests have been closed, etc. Lol. WP can be frustrating at times.)
Thanks for the friend request! I love your blog :) I'm always interested in guest blogging, so if you have a need for a guest post, I'd love to do one.
I didn't think I could stick with "Hedgehog", but now that I'm 3/4 of the way into it, I'm really enjoying it. For some reason, it reminds me of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being". Probably because it discusses art so much.

I loved your "Hedgehog" review and really like your review blog! It's nice to know that there is someone else out there who can appreciate both Charlaine Harris as well as Graham Greene, lol! Sometimes, I think I'm the only one :P
A fellow writer! There's nothing quite like starting a story and seeing where it takes you. (Although I am a big fan of outlining!)

Without being spoiler-y, I would say that Zusak creates an ending that is satisfying to the reader. And given the subject matter, that is quite an accomplishment. Let me know what you think when you pick it back up.

Oh, also, some editions have a really cool interview with Zusak where he discusses craft. For sure the pb 2010 editions, maybe earlier. . .

PS-I hope you enjoy Rippler; let me hear your thoughts!
I wanted to say thanks for the friend invite! I see you're reading M Zusak's The Book Thief. Wow. Just, wow. I loved it.
That's great news that you have received the book. Yes, by all means post the review on your site. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions or comments outside the review I'm happy to respond. Stay in touch!
Hi Jacqui! I trust the book has reached you by now? I'm just curious as I've only heard confirmation from one person and I'm hoping all the books arrived okay!
Hi Jacqui. I'm sorry it took a while, but The Glister Journals: Bronze is now on its way to you.
