Ashley Thanks for accepting my friend request. You are in my top three favorite authors, and it really means a lot!
I seriously cannot wait to read UnSouled when it comes out! Congratulations on all of your amazing books, and keep writing!


message 13: by Riya

Riya Thanks so much for accepting my friend request!!! Unwind was just amazing, and I just got Unwholly- I'm honestly dying to read it. Such an amazing series!

Ashley Thank you for accepting my friend request.

Mariama Thanks for accepting my friend request!! You are one of my top five favorite authors and I have read every single book of yours that I can get my hands on! You are an amazing author and your writing always makes me crave for more!

My favorite book that you have written is Unwind, though the Skinjacker trilogy is a close second. I love your concepts with these two books; you are extremely original:) I also really like your Dark Fusion series, especially Red Rider's Hood. Any chance of any more of those books coming out anytime soon? I just love the idea of twisting fairy tales that way! Amazing! Another favorite of mine is Bruiser. That book just made me think so much about the meaning of love and sacrifice.

Anyway, I extremely enjoy your books!!! I wish I could become such a masterful storyteller just like you:)

Mariama:)


message 10: by Namra

Namra Hi, Neal! I just want to tell you that you're a fabulous writer. Unwind just strikes a chord in your heart. And it is one of my favourite books ever. I haven't read UnWholly yet but am so looking forward to it.

BTW I really liked the way you took a realistic approac in Unwind. Not painting a dismal picture unnaturally rosy. So thank you. Unwind rocked my world.


J. A. Owen  Mr. Neal, I just wanted to say that I loved Everlost! It was just a great read and you are a brilliant author! I can't wait to get my hands on your other books! <3 <3 <3

and you are reading game of thrones!?!?! Me too!!! It's so addicting!!! I want to tell customers at my work now when they would expect things to be ready, and I want to say, "When the winter comes it will all be ready," They won't like my reference to a game of thrones bahahaha and it won't go well with my managers. :P :P :P :P But it is a funny idea for me. :P oh books.


 ☆∞Bellas☮ ♥Shelf∞☆ Unwind was brilliant! When is Unwholly due out?


Kat (idangerous) Thank you for accepting my request! I'm currently reading Red Rider's Hood after reading Bruiser and so far Red is really good!


Mgdrox99 Unwind was an amazing book. I just finished the first Skinjacker book and I checked out Everwild and Everfound. Your an amazing author. I love your books and so does everyone at my school.
