Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) This is a great place to let others know who you are and what you like! Why you joined the Kailin Gow Group, etc...

My name is Kristi Stern. I've been a big fan of Kailin's for quite some time. I love all of her books but my all time favorite is The Bitter Frost Series, The Stoker Sisters is pulling a close second though!

I'm from Northern Lower Michigan and wished I lived in warmer climes! I love winter sports but haven't been able to participate in them for a few years.

I love to read-period! YA PNR/UF genre is pretty much where I tend to stay but I read alot of other things to.

It's nice to meet everyone and I look forward to Monday when I hope to meet many more of you!


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Nice to meet you, Alexis! Alexis is a main character in The Stoker Sisters!

I feel your pain:o] I can't stop reading either!
I'm not happy unless theirs a book in my hand--and when it's not deemed polite to be reading, say when someones trying to carry on a conversation with you, my Kindle or a book is always within arms reach!

How nice to meet you and I can't wait to get to know you better!

Hi Everyone!

So nice to meet all of you. I just found out about this group, but I'm thrilled it was started. I met Kristi through Facebook, and she mentioned something about a group so here it is...

I'll definitely lend my support and answer questions you may have here. I'll also get involve in discussions, but I won't spoil things for you. Can't do that, of course.

OK, I may provide a few spoilers on upcoming books, series, character changes, and whatever is coming up. And giveaways - ARC, bookmarks, or whatever comes to mind giveaways.

Looking forward to getting to know you better!

Alexis - so nice to meet you and I'm so glad you enjoyed Wicked Woods.

Kristi - wow, thank you for thinking of me, sweetie :D


message 4: by Heather (new)

Heather I'm Heather from Buried in Books and I've only read the Frost series though I have the two Wicked Wood books on my TBR pile. I keep getting stopped by life and stuff. I love Kailin Gow's books! She really covers all the bases on my favorite paranormals and fantasy characters. I love the flow of her writing and can't wait to meet everyone else that loves her writing!

Jamie (fantasygirl77) | 1 comments Hi everyone! I'm Jamie. I've read the first two books in the Frost series & have the Pulse series & the Stoker Sisters series sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I'm also going to get the Wicked Series soon when I get a Kindle. I live in FL and love reading YA paranormal romance/urban fantasy. Thanks Kristi for the invite!

Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Hey Heather (SFAM!) and Jamie-my cohort in the Kailin novels!
I'm glad you're both here!

Heather, I already told you how much you'll love the Wicked Woods Series, I can't wait until you get them!

JamieYou'll love Silver Frost, it's excellent and so unique! I love both the Stoker Series and The Pulse series. I'm going to start a poll soon on what book everyone would like to read starting in February.
That way it'll give everyone time to get them.

I'm so glad to see you both here!

Kathryn (kgrimes) | 3 comments Hello everyone! My name is Kathryn and I love to read..
I am excited about this group b/c I love the Pulse series as well as the Bitter Frost series.
I have always enjoyed reading the Paranormal. Vampires were usually my true love, but since this genre has exploded, I love them all!!


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Hey Kathryn! Glad to see you made it! I started with the Vamps, too but like you, I love everything paranormal!

Good to see you here so we can get to know each other better. We've got a great group started already!

Mily Lou (MilyLou) | 9 comments Hello,

My name is Emilia, but people call me Emily.

About me: I have 3 dogs, one is named Pickles, Pinky and Bebee. They are all tea cups Chihuahuas. I am a university student and I graduated once. I will graduate again in one year, and again in year 2015. I will continue to go for many more years.

I love romance novels and fantasy, anything that has to do with the paranormal. I love to talk to authors and I have met a few. Fiona McIntosh is my favorite author. I am thinking of becoming an author my-self. The books I will publish one day will be a three book series about vampires. My hobbies are reading and drawing. I also like graphic design. One day I wish to travel the world, the places I want to travel are Rome, Spain, London, and Europe.

This is a great group, and I hope to talk to everyone real soon.

You're welcome Alexis. Glad you're here :D

Welcome Emily!

I love dogs, too. I had a poodle, a German Shepherd, a Keeshon, a Terrier mix and a Golden Retriever growing up (not all at the same time, though). I also had a white cat named Snowflake.

Wonderful dreams and aspirations you have, Emily! Hope all of them come true :D


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Hi Emily! So Glad to meet you. I was wondering if you had made your own Avatar? I love it!

Travelling is a dream of mine. Greece will be my first stop but Rome won't be far behind it. I'm Irish/Scottish so those are also on my Travel wish list!

I think it's great that you want to be an Author.
Kailin is the person to talk to! She's a wonderful mentor and helps a lot of young girls/adults overcome a lot of personal obstacles so they can meet their goals and achieve their dreams!

You can add her to your Authors you've met. I think she'll soon be one of your favorites!

Tea cub chihuahuas are adorable! I love all animals and next to St. Judes for children the ASPCA is my next favorite charity. I'm all for fighting for those that can't fight for themselves, in my book... children & animals.
What have been/are your Majors? I would be a professional student if I could. I was working on my masters in Nursing when I got sick a few years ago but had to quit because of the meds, etc...

I'd love to hear all about what your learning and what your goals are! What University are you attending and again, what are and what have been your majors!

It's so good to have you here, Emily! Welcome and I can't wait to get to know you better!
Kristi


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Hi Kailin,

I did add you as a moderator without telling you....
Kailin... you're a moderator, LOL!

Sowwy for not telling you right away :o]

Hi!, My name is Cassie Madsen, and i live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have read the wicked woods, bitter frost, forever frost, rise of the fire tamer (worldwick games, and the ascension. The reason why i joined this group because i really enjoy reading kailin gows books, and i think it would be cool to meet other people that enjoy her books as well.


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Hello Cassie!

Well, you're in the right place! It's great to meet you and I know we'll get along just great! I love all of Kailins books and it's hard for me to pick a favorite but I think I'd have to go with The Bitter Frost Series and The Wicked Woods Series if I absolutely had to pick.

How is Las Vegas? Is it hot there right now? Are you close to the strip or in an ordinary suburb? LOL... I always have a lot of questions; it's in my nature to be curious!

Alice!!
I'm glad she did! That's great news!!!
I haven't had a chance yet to get over to FB and let Kailins fans know what we're doing here at GoodReads. If you'd like, you could be our Good Will Ambassador over there and let them know we've got a group starting here 'officially' on Monday but their welcome anytime.
Let me know if you wouldn't mind doing that! I was going to spend part of the day tomorrow doing that but I wouldn't mind a little help :o]
Kristi


message 24: by Alice (new)

Alice (angel89) yeah i could do that. post it on all my book club pages or something


message 25: by Cassie (new)

Cassie | 45 comments Mod
Yeah, I am glad to join. I totally love all her books, all her book are my favorite.

Las Vegas isn't actually hot right now, it actually snowed coupled a days ago,which was pretty cool. I live like 30 minutes away from the strip without traffic, so yeah i do live in an ordinary suburb.


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Alice,

That would be so helpful and much appreciated! Thank you very much! Save me some time tomorrow. It's hard to get the group going if not everybody knows about it. But with your help, we can spread the word around a bit quicker!
Thanks again!

Kristi


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Snow in Vegas, Cassie? Hmmm, didn't know it did that there! My brother just moved out to Vegas about 6 months ago. He does the news there, channel 4? I should know this, shouldn't I? Bad sister. He's tall, Dark hair, gorgeous blue eyes? My other brother's on TV all the time, too. I don't get it! Where'd I go wrong :o] I choose the way of piety (ok slight exaggeration, there) and take care of other people as an RN and my brothers get all the excitement!

They meet famous people, my brother Greg's chattin' up Shia Lebeouf while's he's talking to me on his cell... he's like, "yeah, Shia, the new cadilac for stinger is indentical to the other 2, oh yeah, check out those platnium lights, etc.... I was hanging on every word! I was like Greg, how could you just carry on a normal convo when you knew I was droolin' on the other line. Why didn't you ask him something important!!!? He thinks it's funny. He's like ask him what? What he ate for lunch? When was the last time he farted and if you could have his boxers? Hahaha... I say sarcastically.

Do you go to Vegas proper, ever? or is it not that big of a deal to you guys? My brother told me once he was there a few months it kind of lost it's appeal.


message 28: by Cassie (new)

Cassie | 45 comments Mod
Yeah it like really doesn't snow that much and it only last a couple of hours, then it all melts. lol.

LOL. That is really cool that you have brothers that are on TV. I usually watch channel 13 cause that's my favorite number.lol I think that's awesome that you take care of people as an RN, although i don't know what that is.

I feel like a dork asking, but what is Vegas proper? :)


message 29: by Tonya (new)

Tonya (TPotter) | 12 comments Hi. I'm Tonya. I'm an avid reader, 29 years old and have always been called a bookworm because I've always had a book in my hand since I began reading (at a very young age). I read anything that captures my attention, but mostly I like the Young Adult section.

I unfortunately haven't had the opportunity to read any of Kailin Gow's books, though I do want to. I haven't been able to find any in my local libraries and I honestly don't have the capabiliities to buy any as of right now. I think, in the near future, I will be asking the Librarian to think about buying some Kailin Gow books for the library.

Thanks for inviting me to this group, however! I can't wait to learn more about everyone! :)


Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) LOL, Vegas Proper just means right in Vegas. It's just a silly saying meaning right in the town itself. So, if your in Vegas but not in the strip with the lights and casinos, then that wouldn't be considered Vegas proper. If you were on the strip with the casinos, etc... that would be considered Vegas proper. Make sense? It's just a silly old saying, I don't know why I still use it; I guess because my Mom and Dad did, kind of stuck in there.

An RN is a Registered Nurse. I went to school for 4 years and got my Bachelors degree and then passed a state certified board test in order to become licensed to do so.

Up until about 2 years ago I was working on my Masters Degree in Science/Nursing (Major in Nursing with a minor in Science) so that I could do other things with my nursing degree but I became ill with a funky rare neuromuscular disease (affects my nervous system and my muscular system and it's very painful) so I had to quit school for a bit until the specialists, etc... could figure out how to treat this rare disorder. So far, nothings worked but I'm hopeful and positive that things will get better :o]

You're not a dork, I just use weird sayings, LOL! My Older brothers are dorks but I still love them. :o] btw I'm still waiting for Shia's boxers....


message 31: by Cassie (new)

Cassie | 45 comments Mod
oh lol. i actually don't really go to the strip cause im only 16 and the only time i do go down their is to get to the airport or to go to with my dad to work. He manages a couple of restaurants at the casinos in the strip.

Oh Duh!! lol that's really awesome. :)

That definitively, i hope you get better and you find something that works. My mom has had problems too were they didn't know what was wrong with her, but thankfully they found out before she slipped into coma. So yeah, i am sure you will find something so you can get better you just have to stay positive. :)

LOL, thanks, my little brother is a dork too.

Hi Tonya,

I'm glad you're here anyways! If you have access to a computer or to any electrical device that will accept a Kindle app, I'd gladly loan you one of Kailins books to read.

If you have a computer/laptop just go to the Kindle section of Amazon and it'll walk you through how to download the app on your computer or your blackberry, iphone and a bunch of others.
Let me know when you do it and I'll loan you one of her books.

I have them all on my Kindle and would be more than happy then to share them with you.
Just leave me a message here or a private message, however you'd like and we'll work something out.

I'm really glad to see you here, Tonya!!!


message 33: by Heather (new)

Heather Sounds like we've got a good group so far! Just to let you know, Kristi and I met over a review I think of one of Kailin's books. We've been writing back and forth ever since. If you don't get a reply right away, just hang on. I will get back to you as soon as I can if Kristi can't get to you. Like she said she's been sick so we'll have to cut her some slack. I'm not real techy so y'all might have to teach me a few things. Like how to put a picture up instead of a blank face. That's terrible!

This is an AWESOME group! It's amazing Kristi and you started this, especially since Kristi has been sick. I'm truly touched.

You can put a picture up through your profile. Go there and upload a photo of yourself, your dog, or favorite book, what comes to mind. I'm still trying to understand Goodreads, too. But the picture thingy thing I got!


message 36: by Kristi-The Book Faery (last edited Jan 09, 2011 11:17AM) (new)

Kristi-The Book Faery (KristiTheBookFaery) Heather's right, we did meet over a review of Kailin's back in the beginning of October but we became fast friends instantly.
I know she's got my back just as she knows I've got hers! We've both got a wicked sense of humor and Love Kailin's writing but most of all we're both honest people!

And Thank you Kailin, I was up until after 1:00 am learning how to start a new Series file and putting up the links to your books under each topic. I'm learning a lot.

I'd really like to Thank Luann from GoodReads Feedback for all her help! She's terrific like most people I've met here on GR's!

Heather, you are too pretty techy, and you have fabulous ideas! Heathers a great brainstormer!

Yes, I think we have a wonderful group started here but the subject matter makes it easy to work with :o]

Yes, Kailin! When I was younger my parents had to tell me to put my books down so I could walk, eat, or do anything else. I'm still the same way! I absolutely love reading to point that it could be considered an addiction! LOL...


message 43: by Heather (new)

Heather I think blogging is becoming my second favorite pastime. I guess it's still writing. But it does seem to be taking me away from reading. I can remember reading in the floor of the car on long trips for vacation (sister claimed she was car sick and got the whole back seat to lay on). I read everything I could get my hands on. My mom would drop me at the library on a Saturday morning and go shopping at the mall across the street and I'd spend the whole time at the library. I miss those days!

Hey Amy---I was getting worried about you---I haven't been on FB for a while and my email is seperate from my other.
How are you feeling? Your migraine any better? I sure hope so, I felt so bad for you! I need to get over to FB and check my messages.
I'm so glad you're here :o]

Hey Melissa!

Great to see you here! How awesome, you're writing your own book? Is it a YA based book? Sounds great and I wish you success on that. I love to review but could never be a writer!

Glad you're here
