I'll be using this thread to thank you all, my readers, for all the amazing things you do for me. You truly are awesome, and I hope to pay you back by writing entertaining books, hosting awesome giveaways of my books, and responding to each and every message, comment, or tweet I get from all of you!

Now, to start things off, I want to thank you for your completely obsessive voting for The Moon Dwellers in both Listopia lists and Book of the Month polls. You've absolutely dominated for me in some pretty major polls that are a MASSIVE help for me as an author. I really can't put a value on what you've done. Here are just a few examples:

-The Moon Dwellers is ranked in the top 20 in 12 Listopia lists related to anything from dystopian books, to books similar to The Hunger Games, to books that should be made into movies, and lots more. The Moon Dwellers is also #1 in 4 of these lists!

-Made The Moon Dwellers the Book of the Month in 4 different groups, including Shut up and Read, and We Love YA Books, two very large Goodreads groups. So far The Moon Dwellers has been nominated and competed in 5 polls thus far, and has won 4 of them!!

Without your incredible support none of this would have been possible! I've been so humbled by what you've done for me. I may not have the most readers in the world yet, but I definitely have the most generous, kind-hearted, and CRAZY (just like me ;) readers in the world, and for that I'm proud.

So thanks again for everything you do for me, and watch this thread for the many other things I'm sure I'll need to thank you all for soon!

I really have to thank all the members of the fan group for making the launch of The Star Dwellers such a big success. The first month was awesome and I'm hoping this month will be even better!

Also, The Moon Dwellers is now officially on more TBR lists than my first book, Angel Evolution! Incredible! That's all thanks to you all for reading my books, writing such kind reviews, and then telling your friends about The Moon Dwellers. I would be NOTHING without all your generosity and support.

So I'd like to give a very special WOOT WOOT! to everyone in the group. Your kindness and friendliness put a GINORMOUS smile on my face everyday.

Oh my gosh, nicest compliment EVER! You are too sweet, and honestly, I really love meeting and making friends with all of you because I'm just a voracious reader who happens to write too. I love chatting with you all about our favorite books, it's so much fun! But thank you, it really means a lot to hear you say that :)

message 21: by Michael (new)

Michael Tyrer (holden) | 55 comments can i ask ? did I read somewhere that your first book Archangel Evolution (The Evolution Trilogy, #3) by David Estes was going to be altered slightly and that you would be better to finish the moon dwellers series to allow time for this re-write, or did i dream it ?


message 22: by David, Mr. Blue Eyes; He's the Best--Ain't no lie!! ;) (new)

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 10713 comments Mod
Of course you can ask, Michael :)

That's the third one in the Evolution Trilogy that you've got there, but yes, you heard correctly, although it's not really a rewrite. I basically took the first book in the series Angel Evolution (The Evolution Trilogy, #1) by David Estes and did a bit of work on it using what I know now to make it better, if that makes sense?

Because it was the first book I ever wrote, it had some major issues that I wanted to sort out, but I didn't want to change it drastically as I wanted to keep the plot the same and didn't want to touch the sequels. In any case, the new version that's available for sale on all sites is the updated version, so no need to wait any longer if you're interested in giving it a shot!

Thanks for the question, Michael!!

I just want to say another HUGE THANK YOU to everyone in this group, you make me feel special on a daily basis and bring more joy to my life than you can possibly imagine.

Also, YOU are making my dreams come true.

So thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart, I feel so incredible right now :)
