I produced my manuscript on a manual typewriter and remember having made six copies, collecting rejection slips. Married at eighteen, I moved to a remote area of Northern Minnesota to start a new life. All of the manuscript copies were in my house the day it caught fire and burned to the ground.

Kathryn Stockett has masterfully built characterization in layers in The Help. The voices she's crafted eloquently tell the book's story.

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Hi, my new friend! Thank you for friend request! Nice page, good info! Will be glad to share and exchange some thoughts, recommendations, etc in the future! Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons' hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
Never shave your beard and moustache, BTW! You must be very proud wearing them, that's the appearance of the Mountaineers, the only people who could become and train wizards in antiquity...:). Letb this short poem of mine be a gift for you:

Let's watch the moon, let's meet the sun!
Let's hear soon the way the Deed was done!
Let's listen to the music the shiny crystals played,
let's welcome crowds of creatures good and great... from my The Opposite Of Magic.
