Aww thanks Tom! It's been consuming most of my time. I cut back on reading to make room for writing. That and we've all been sick over here. I'll be in and out as I can. I appreciate the support : )

Tom I guess I'm one of your internet stalkers that you were talking about...haha After not seeing you around much I saw you show up with the Indie group and clicked on your blog to see what you were up to and saw that you are writing a book!! Very excited for you hope it goes well.

Sempre has definitely been added as one of my ALL-time favorites! I'm going to try and get my husband to read it, he generally doesn't read :( but I think he would LOVE it. Trylle was pretty fantastic too. Have you read her Zombie books? Hollowland & Hollowmen. If you like paranormal I think you would enjoy them. I look forward to chatting about books :)


message 6: by Tom

Tom Thanks for the friendvite!! I've seen you around on some of the posts I've commented on and any one who loved Sempre is alright in my book...haha I also see you've read the Trylle series which I don't know too many people who have read that one. It was different and one of my favorite YA's mostly because of the unique plot.

Haha agreed! I realized we had so many friends in common and then it totally skipped my brain that we were both in BA together on FB & then I compared books with you and was like DANG we have the same tastes in reading!! Needless to say I had to add you :) And it doesn't hurt that your name is just as beautiful as my own. haha

toodles,
Melissa
