message 2: by Susan

Susan Sarah Beth,
Just finished your book a day or so ago - FABULOUS! I really loved it. Ordered for the library! Recommended it to friends! Totally curious - noted you went to Princeton, did you get any of your ideas at the Cotsen Library's collection? I did a study on them for a library class and they had such amazing books, especially fairy tales, so wondered.
Looking forward to reading your second book.

Daniel Sarah, you may end up with your books selling in the millions like J. K. Roling's books. One never can tell in this literary jungle. All the best to you in your book adventures.
