End-of-year thanks

Just a note to say:

Thank you, wonderful Goodreads community, for your support of The Unseen World and my other books as well. It's been so nice to hear from you and get to know some of you.

I hope you find some time to relax amidst the end-of-year chaos.

As for me: I'm hard at work on my next project, and I can't wait to share it soon.

Best wishes, Happy New Year, goodbye 2017.

More of Liz's books…
“I had ways of consoling myself. Yes, there was food but there was beyond food, this idea I had of an oversoul of loneliness. A connectedness among the world's lonely that I could turn to when I was very low. There was a delicious romance in being utterly alone, & I told myself I was nobler for it, & that there was a purpose to my solitude, O there must be.”
Liz Moore

“We talk for a very long time and I ask her if it gets easier and she says not really, just different. A different duller kind of hurt, the kind that doesn't surprise you anymore.
I ask what her parent were like when it happened and she says they have never been the same.”
Liz Moore, Heft

“But for the most part, she was utterly content with her strange, satisfying existence: Ada and David together, always.”
Liz Moore, The Unseen World
