Fall from India Place by Samantha Young
"When I learnt that I won the paperback of this book I was more than excited to have it. When I read it, I was just reminded why I love her writing so much. She took me by my hand and gave me an amazing journey.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.Theodore Roosevelt
Hey folks,

To celebrate the upcoming release of OUT OF THE SHALLOWS (INTO THE DEEP #2), the first in the series INTO THE DEEP is on sale for a limited period. It was $2.99 NOW $0.99.

LyRe (Beauty & madness) hello Samantha! thank youu soo much for accepting my friend request! on Dublin street is one of my faves and i'm loving all the books in the series, also, i've read the first book, moon spell which is great too. i'm stalking some of your shelves now. haha. i would love to read more of your works.

Elifobeth Hi Samantha,

I'm currently reading 'Castle Hill' and planning for Before Jamaica Lane after that. I wonder about excerpt from Cam and Jo. Are you planning to write sth for this couple? I do love them very much. Please give it a thought if you haven't got any plan yet :D

Thuy Samantha,

Just finished the short excerpt behind Castle Hill for Before Jamaica Lane and I seriously think you are torturing your readers with Nate...movie star good looks, dimples, a little nerdy, cocky, and loyal...you've just turned up the hot meter to smoking girl!! Did I ever tell you I love the men you create:)


message 165: by ♥Jamie

♥Jamie Hey Samantha!

I just finished Into the Deep. I'm not afraid to tell you I'm having a very intense love/hate relationship with you from afar right now. Lol. Don't worry, it's nothing serious. I'm positive I will land on the side of love, but for now I'm extremely grumpy that Out of the Shallows isn't going to be out for forever (maybe a slight exaggeration, but like I said grumpy), and my emotions are all cray-cray from ITD. Seriously though, I wanted to express how amazing I think your talent is and how completely in love with your books I am. I'm looking forward to OOTS and whatever else you want to throw at us. ;-)

Jme<3
