Allison Rushby My pleasure! Thanks, Rachmi!

You're right, Ron Mueck's art is amazing! If I didn't know that it's sculpture, I might think it's real people.

Thank you for letting me know this kind of art :)

Hi Rachmi! Cameron's art is a little bit based on the works of Ron Mueck, but his character more on Damien Hirst. Ron Mueck's work is pretty amazing. You can see some here... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic...

Thanks again!

Allison


Rachmi Hi, thank you for the friend request. And for approving my request on NetGalley :)

I really enjoyed Beneath Beautiful. I was wondering where do you get the idea of Cameron's works? I think their are amazing :)


Allison Rushby Thanks so much for your kind words, Shelley! Very excited to tell you I will be releasing a YA trilogy in just a couple weeks. Some details have just gone up here... http://xpressobooktours.com/2013/10/1... These books were some of my favourite ones to write (the heroine is completely mad and obsessed with Marilyn Monroe). I missed her so much when I stopped writing the books!

Thanks again!

Allison
