Jennifer Estep Thanks! Hope that you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Cheers!


Jennifer Estep Thanks for friending me as well. Glad you are enjoying my books.


Jennifer Estep Thanks for friending me as well. Glad you are enjoying my Mythos Academy series, and I hope that you like my Elemental Assassin series too. There are several free short stories on the Excerpts page of my website if you haven't checked those out yet.

Also available is my Bigtime paranormal romance series about superheroes. Happy reading!

Kirsten Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for adding me. I am currently working my way through your Mythos Academy series, and loving it!! I also have your Elemental Assassins on my TBR list as well. I enjoy the way you write for YA, so I'm really looking forward to finishing what's available for Mythos before moving on to the Elemantal Assassins.


Jennifer Estep Which cover are you talking about? The one for THE SPIDER? That one is set ten years in the past, so that's why Gin looks a little younger on that cover.

Actually, the same model has been used on all the covers so far. They just style her a little differently, I guess.


message 52: by Lisa

Lisa just curious as to the appearance change in Gin on this cover. Her looks have taken a drastic turn from the previous covers. Just curious as to the change...


Jennifer Estep Hi, Gypsy rose. Thanks. Glad you are enjoying my books.

As of right now, there is not a book of all the short stories, and there are no plans to do a book at this time. If that ever changes, I will announce it on my website, etc.

Thanks,

Jennifer Estep


Jasmine (Spanish Rose) LOVE UR BOOKS MS.E! IS THERE A BOOK OF ALL YOUR SHORT STORIES COMBINED OR WILL THERE BE ONE EVER ?(FOR ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN?)

Janna Hi Jennifer!

Thank you for accepting my friend request.

I love wandering through the stacks at my local library. Your Mythos Aademy books caught my eye and I scooped up the first three, checked them out and finished them in four days! I have Crimson Frost on order. Loved them! Also bought the first Elemental Assassin book.

I think I will be cosied up with your books for quite some time ;D. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us!

Hugs!
Janna


Jennifer Estep Thanks! I appreciate that. Glad that you enjoyed the book and are looking forward to MIDNIGHT FROST.

Jennifer Estep Thanks! I really appreciate all the nice words about my books, and I'm glad you are enjoying my various series. I also offer bookmarks to readers. You can e-mail me here on Goodreads to find out how to get some of those. Thanks again for the lovely note.


Ruvinika A while ago I accidentally found your Elemental assassin series while browsing recommendations in the Goodreads site. So I thought I'll go for it, and as soon as I got my hands on it I got addicted to the series not only because it was such a mind-binding story but also because of your writing style.
You have a really good sense of humour and you know how to pour that into your books. I finished off the whole series including the free short stories (Thank you very much for those) within a matter of a week and was lusting for more.

I needed a fix so badly, I went ahead and bought the Bigtime series. Those might be a bit too predictive but that did't hurt the enjoyment of the ride. Plus those books are helluva hilarious. xD
(Every time I crack up my brother peeks into my room and comments "you are doing that weird 'book laughing' thing too often these days and it creeps me out." )
I really hope you'll write more books into that series.

By this time I knew that you can't screw up anything you write cuz you are too much talented for that. Thus I ended up with the two available books of the Mythos academy series, even though I am not much into young adult series (They are too less violent for my taste. :D )
I see that you have soften your style of writing to suit the teens but still I love those books so much as they also contain a really interesting story line with lots of mysteries and open ends to continue from. (I am really suspicious about Gwen's dad and the hateful attitude Nickamedes has towards her...hmmm...)

I rarely write messages to authors or reviews for the books cuz I am too much of a lazy brat. But in your case I got more than enough of an energy boost and motivation to write you to encourage you to write the next books of your series as soon as possible as I am dieing to read more...:D
And I also want to request you to write more and more new series cuz in me you have an eternally devoted fan who will read anything you write and I am sure that I'm not the only one. ;)

Dayla I absolutely love your writing! I read karma girl and found it satisfyingly satirical, and I'm currently reading touch of frost and I'm already loving it, considering that I've only just begun reading it! Keep writing great books!


Jennifer Estep Thanks! Glad you are enjoying the books.

If I was a man or homosexual this would be serious coz you know if I was Youre husband I would can read Youre books before they got published! I must wait months to Dark Frost and I think I cant handle it..! Or can I at least marry Logan?


Jennifer Estep Thanks! Glad you enjoyed TOUCH OF FROST, and I hope you like KISS OF FROST too. Happy reading!


Patrycja I am counting days to Kiss of Frost since i finished Touch of frost in July. :D


Jennifer Estep You're welcome. Thanks for your interest in my books. Glad you liked HALLOWEEN FROST, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Mythos Academy series too. Happy reading!

Melissa Thanks for accepting my friend request!
I read "Halloween Frost" in the anthology "Entangled" and absolutely fell in love with Gwen's character. Because of that story I have already read the back story of how Gwen came to lose her mother and started on Book #1. I've also pre-ordered book #2 for my nook. You have a wonderful style of writing and I am enjoying this series. I plan on starting to read your other series also. Thanks!!


Jennifer Estep Thanks! Glad you are enjoying the series. I appreciate all the nice words about the books. If you haven't checked them out yet, there are several freel Elemental Assassin short stories on the Excerpts page of my website. Happy reading!
