I have to say that Starflower will no longer be published as is but has been included in its entirety as a part of Exospherica. I have not been able to work on Exospherica for awhile now, but I will let you know when I get back to it.(less)

*******HAPPY 2018 EVERYONE!!!********

This new year holds many new things for me, including the release of a new book and a new album!

The book, A Saga of Secrets and Lies, is the first in a trilogy surrounding teenage spy Sage Wickham. Set in London, England, and based on my time there, it's a fun romp through the night streets and the labyrinthine clues of past connections and future friendship... Read more of this blog post »

Thank you for being my friend and for liking my review! I hope you read the book, it's a masterpiece! And I don't say that lightly. I'm glad you liked the humor, too! So glad you got to go to Scotland! I look forward to see what you're reading and read your reviews! Keep an eye out for mine! :D


message 13: by Ina

Ina Hi Luke, thanks for the friend request! I had to like your review of Ivory and Bone — I nearly died (of laughter) when I got to the part about teenage romance...because of course in these kinds of books, teenage romance is always the end all be all of things. And of course, it was just a good review. :)

I like the New England Patriots too, though I've found that outside of New England, they aren't the most universally beloved team.

Scotland is a beautiful country — you've absolutely got to visit it one day. I've only been there once, but I loved it!

Hi Nastassja! Good to be your friend! Thank you for the kind words! So glad I could make you laugh! It's good to have great material to work with, and some of our mutual friends always seem to provide something to laugh about!!! :D
PS, your jokes are safe with me! Don't feel awkward! :D
Best to you! :D


Nastassja Hi, Luke)) Thank you for friendvite. I've seen you around through our mutual friends and already know that you have an excellent sense of humor, and as I am absolutely awkward in the art of telling jokes, I find that quality in other people absolutely irresistible :D


Jasmine 🌻 Hey, Luke! Thanks for the friendvite and I see that you're really active here on GR, either in group discussion(like the Six of Crow one) or leaving comments on others' reviews. So I can't wait to have some bookish talks with you soon as well! ;)

I do have two of my books in ebook format, but I have found that more people want the tangible tactile experience, however, I will also be releasing an ebook version of The Muiread soon.

Vessey Hi, Luke. I thank you for the friend invite and kind words. Yes, I liked your review. It was obvious that it has been written by a gifted person. Thanks for sharing iformation about your project. I definitely like fantasy and I would be happy if i get the chance to read your book some day. I'm looking forward to your next reviews.

P.S. You have been writing since you were 7? Okay, you're like Motzart. No, he has done at at 11, so he falls behind. :) I wish you success.

P.S. 2 I seriously like your name. As a girl I used to watch these American teenage soap operas and there was always some Luke there. Thanks for bringing in the good memories.
