Hey, congrats on the nomination for the Andre Norton award! Sorry you're up against the HP juggernaut. Still, amazing recognition of your talent!
Karen (I saw you at Boskone)
Hello Sarah! Hope all's well with you. Fyi, Scary Uncle Amazon (or one of his minions, most likely) sent me my copy of Into the Wild across the sea to me here in rainy London a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it very much: huge congratulations and power to your writing elbow!
And yes, I'll get that list to you just as soon as I can find it... ;)
Isn't LibraryThing terrific?
Very best wishes,
PS: Was particularly happy to see you worked in that classic Grimm curse about 'you'll eat glowing coals and belch fire'. That's always been one of my personal favourites.
Sarah, welcome to LT! And it's nice to see your fresh, young face once again. I'm sorry I didn't get to see much of you at Readercon, too much running around this year for the committee, me thinks! I did buy your book but haven't read it yet (but MaggieO, who also bought it at Readercon, tells me it is delightful!).
Best, Lois
Hi Sarah,

I’ve noticed that you’ve added a picture to your author’s page! Now that you’re part of the community, I was wondering whether you’d be interesting in becoming a Librarything Author.

Our LT Author program, in essence, connects authors with their fans. Authors join LT as regular members -- so you’ve completed the first step! -- and catalog at least 50 books. Then their member profile page is connected with their "author page" on LT (which shows how many other LT members list their books in their LT libraries), and are added to the master list of LT Authors. It's a fun way for readers to browse in their favorite author's personal library, and for authors to connect with their fans on a personal level.

More here.

You can also upload a photo, and post links to your homepage, blog, interviews and articles. Once you feel you meet the requirements, email Abby ( and she’ll authorize it as an LT Author account -- it's free. We’d love to have you!

Let me know if you have any questions.
