Jamie,

Thank you so much for your rosy predictions about Ivan and for sharing the fact that you connected with the book. After spending the last two years with Ivan in my head, it means so much to hear that other's love him too.

I very well may attend book conventions in the future. As opportunities arise, my publishers let's me know. I'm still very much getting used to this whole new world!

Also kudos on visiting Belarus! It's been big year for the Belarus and literature with Svetlana Alexievich winning the nobel prize :)

Warmly,

Scott(less)

The Invisible Life of Ivan Isaenko by Scott Stambach
"I feel like I've been sandblasted. This was a fantastic and devastatingly weird read at the same time. I can honestly say, I've never read anything like this. How did this happen? I despise YA (for those who know me) but was enraptured by this story;" Read more of this review »

The Foreword from the “editor” and the Epilogue (at the end, of course) refer to Ivan’s real story and the dates that this took place, so it must be real, mustn’t it?

“Two decades of observing human nature have revealed a few notable differences between the way men and women approach conflict: men will knock each other out and then hug it out, while women tend to leave deep, unresolved scars on the souls of their victims.”
Scott Stambach, The Invisible Life of Ivan Isaenko

“Don't die before you're dead. And if you do, let it be the good kind...when the only part of you that dies is who you were supposed to be.”
Scott Stambach, The Invisible Life of Ivan Isaenko

“You'll find, Ivan, that most of the evil in the world is done by men who are addicted to their own thoughts.”
