First, so glad to hear you want to start your own book. Best of luck! I have lots of advice but for getting started, I think the most important thing is that you write about something that excites you. Don't worry about trends, or about who's going to read the book, etc. Write something that speaks to you. After all, you'll be spending a lot of time in that world, so you want it to be a place that intrigues you.(less)
Suzanne Selfors Hi Cera. I would really like to write another book set in Anglund. I hope to get to it next year. :)

Suzanne Hi Erin.
I'm going to doing a writing contestfor SAVING JULIET. I'll be sure to let you know when it's up and running.
Oh, and you'll be interested to know that a kids theatre company is adapting it for their production in November. Should be lot of fun!

Erin Hi Suzanne how are you? Did you get to have the release party for Saving Juliet that you were planning?
