Having your work read back to you by someone outside your mind is a kick-and-a-half. Better yet, and I think the BEST thing about having written novels is reading the fan-written fiction based on your work. We have more words of fan fiction posted on simegen.com/sgfandom/ than there are professionally published novels.(less)

John Hi Jacqueline,

It looks like you've produced some GREAT books! Unless you're already familiar with him, there's a sci-fi/fantasy author I'd like to recommend to you: Orson Scott Card.

Best wishes!

--John


message 2: by Zetta

Zetta Hi, Jacqueline! Thanks for the add :)


message 3: by Dana

Dana Davis Hi, Jacqueline. Hope you're having a great week. Can't wait for the cool weather this weekend!


Jacqueline Dana:

Yeah, this is the sweet-spot time of year in the desert!

Zetta -- I've seen that name elsewhere. Tell me about yourself?

John, of course I know Orson! Brilliant guy! Awesome books, with deep characterization.

And yes, folks, I need to spend more time on goodreads. This is a fabulous place!
