About this author

Wednesday, September 7

Work-In-Progress Wednesday at my Reader Space. We're up to the fifth part of the second chapter of my eighth book, which has some numerological meaning, I'm sure. http://bit.ly/p2QwJa

Julia Spencer-Fleming Sorry I took so long, Lynn! I've been very lax about checking my Goodreads page this summer. But September's here, and it's time to get back into the routine!

message 8: by Lynn

Lynn Thank you for adding me as a frind. My sister introduced me to your books and after In the Bleak Midwinter, I went through them all in a couple of weeks. Love the town, love the people, love that your writing syle makes them come alive! I can't wait for the next book.

message 7: by Julia

Julia Spencer-Fleming Thanks, Anke! I hope you'll enjoy it.

message 6: by Anke

Anke Hi Julia, thank you for the friends-add! I love your books and am looking forward to the next installment.

Edna Little Fish In Running Waters Spring Hi Julia, I am going to buy your book, "All Mortal Flesh", I haven't read your books yet.
I enjoy Serial Character & Indigenous books and ones about places I have either lived or visited.

message 4: by Steve

Steve Julia, if you're really "face-down in the seventh Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne manuscript," I think I see the problem! Try tipping back a few degrees until you can type!

Always glad to help!


message 3: by Nico

Nico Hi Ms. Fleming,
I love your series and have been passing them on as much as I can. (I got them from my mom, now my husband is reading them and we got the first three for my mother-in-law for Christmas). I can't wait for the next chapter of Russ and Clare's story. Thanks for the fantastic read AND for accepting my friend request.

message 2: by Megan

Megan I am obsessed with this series right now - I started with I Shall Not Want and am working my way backwards to find out what happens immediately preceding each book (usually when I find an author I like I start at the beginning and read forward). I can't wait for the next book to come out - there will be a next book, won't there????

Andrea Kulman Hi & thank you for being a friend on Good Reads!
