Hi Tweezle

Thanks for posting a review about my book. It always makes an author's day when a reader enjoys his book
Thanks so much, Theresa. This really helps. If you're up for it, I'd like to send it over again once I have a lot more done, ten more chapters or so. Of course, I'd make sure it's polished first so that I don't waste your time. If you're up for that, let me know. If not, I completely understand. I know you're probably busy, and I certainly don't want this to become a burden. Either way, you'll get a free, signed copy once it's published :)

Just a few quick questions: someone mentioned that it was getting a little preachy in terms of religion, and that I should lean toward the government plot more, and less toward religion. I don't want to take out the religious aspects (mostly because it ties into the title, and to some degree the theme). However, I'm wondering if I should tone some of the religious stuff down a bit.
Specifically, the person mentioned the horses of the apocalypse as being a bit much. Did it feel overly preachy to you? Do you agree/disagree?

In terms of plot, the next portion of the book deals with Walter growing increasing fearful of the government. He soon becomes convinced that Vincent (the man who impregnated Vivian) is part of the conspiracy, since he's threatening Vivian and because he works for the major's office.Anyway, he eventually finds steroids in Brandon's room, and later he approaches Brandon's drug dealer with the intention of offering him money to kill Vincent, but the plan goes haywire (in a Fargo sort of way). Is that what you were expecting? Does that sound consistent with what you've read so far? Does it seem to forced/contrived? Interesting? A bad idea?

Finally, I'm curious what you think of this book in comparison to Dirty Little Angels. Is the style similar? I guess I'm just wondering if someone who read DLA (and liked it) would read this and feel as though it were too different from the first book. It seems to me that this one is more comedic and more accessible, and that I'll probably have a wider audience (mostly because the characters are middle-class people and because more people can relate to them), but as a writer, you can never really tell. I am worried that it's not as edgy or as "southern" (in the Faulkner/O'Conner sense) when compared to DLA. What do you think?
Would you like me to email you a PDF version of Ready or Not, the first book in the Aggie series to read while For Keeps is enroute to you? Just email me at chautona @ chautona . com if you'd like me to email it.

Congratulations on your win and I hope you enjoy the book

Hi Tweezle:

I just put your copy of Silk Road Gourmet in the mail this morning. Congrats on winning the author giveaway! Till the book arrives, you might want to mosey over to the Silk Road Gourmet website (http://silkroadgourmet.com) to read more about the book, get some free recipes or read some tales from the silk road.

Sincerely,

Laura Kelley, Author
The Silk Road Gourmet Volume 1

Thanks very much for your detailed response! I'm a bit backlogged right now, but will respond as soon as I can. Have a great week!
No problem on the delay — I had a crazy weekend myself and am still catching up on things. Take your time. I've done a little preliminary verse-checking and I'm interested to discuss with you. Thanks :)
Doctrinally, though, I had problems. The doctrine I was taught was different than the way it is taught here. For example, Ms. Olsen states WE are the Bride of Christ. I was taught that the Bride in Revelation is the city and that Israel is the Bride.

Interesting. I was taught the same as Ms. Olsen, but what we were taught is really beside the point. What does the Bible say? Is there Scriptural support for Israel as the city and bride rather than the Body of Christ?
Sent your e-book today... this is my first time sending this PDF; let me know if there are any problems viewing it!

You mentionned before that you found the first listening to be a bit overwhelming. A friend of mine who has also listened to Yaks March on Washington said it wasn't till the second or third time through that he felt that his ear got tuned to the Spanish and things "started clicking." So I was wondering how you felt about it now.

thanks so much. I noticed you became a follower. I've got some book reviews I should post. I'm so behind. Merry Christmas!
Another Chance

How often we wish for another chance
to make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.
It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all our heart.
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
To the world in which we're living.
So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there's always a tomorrow
And the hope of starting new.
