I have been looking into digital publishing and CreateSpace offers quite a good Kindle program for its authors, so while I can't give an exact date for when The Heaven Corporation will be available as a Kindle book, I expect that is something that will be happening in the not-so-distant future.(less)

Briar and Evvy from Tamora Pierce's The Circle Opens quartet and Eragon and Arya from Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle.

Briar and Evvy because they've both been through traumatic experiences that have left them emotionally scarred and they're both looking for a way to heal in all the wrong places (Briar in particular, which becomes clear in The Will of the Empress). I think with those two, it's a case of looking for comfort in all the wrong places and not seeing that the right one has been standing right in front of you the entire time.

Eragon and Arya, which I realise is an unpopular pairing, because despite Eragon's infatuation with Arya's appearance when he was a young, naive teenager, he grew out of that by the end of the latest book, I think. I don't think he just sees her as a pretty face anymore. He views her as one of his closest friends and allies. He respects that she has a history that goes back a lot longer than his and doesn't try to be the replacement for anything she's lost in the past. He doesn't treat her like she owes him her affection for being kind to her. He cares for her romantically, but he cares for their friendship equally and values it for what it is. As for Arya, her life revolves around leading others and being an example to others. Everything she does is for the greater good or for the benefit of someone else. She rarely allows herself to indulge in anything that only serves her personal happiness and I think Eragon is the closest she's ever come to remembering what it was like to just be happy with someone for no reason other than personal contentment. She needs that, I think.(less)

“How you can sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can’t make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless."
