I thought it might be fun to share a few photographs of places which ended up appearing in the novel.

You'll notice that Wal-Mart figures prominently: truly, it felt like the very heart of the town. I don't mean that in a bad way, either--though many of my loved ones are not fans of Wal-Mart, for me it evokes pleasant childhood memories. In Missouri, it was a place I could bike to, with air cond... Read more of this blog post »

message 3: by Sue

Sue Hi Sophie,
I just finished the Aftertime trilogy and wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed this series. I quite literally could not put the last book down for the past two days. Is there a possibility of continuing this story (I would love that!)or how about the movie rights? I think it is on a par with the "Twilight" series and actually better written, so would support that idea! I am looking forward to starting on "Banished" soon. Thank you for this gem!
Sue Klassen :)

Lucinda Dear Sophie,
I would like to thank you for being my friend here on GoodReads, which is a brilliant site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people including authors and readers, writers and book bloggers. I really do apreciate it and look forward to future book discussions.
Kind Regards
Lucinda x

Sophie Littlefield alexis, thank you *so* much! :)
