I know you've got questions. I may or may not give you answers.
Muhawahahahaha.


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) (TheCoverContessa) I CANNOT WAIT FORE THIS!
When is this set to release?


Catarina | 4 comments Will it still be in Maryah and Nathan's POV?


Karen (KarenHooper) | 43 comments Mod
Brooke, Thanks! I'm hoping to release it sometime in the first half of 2012. Hopefully I will have ARCs and review copies by March (?)

Catarina, nope, Maryah is still a POV but the other POV will be a different character.

Laura How much of the book have you written so far? Also do you have any teasers for us? :)

Laura, oddly enough, I wrote about 40k words for book 2 years ago, and I've written another 10k or so in the last year) whenever I thought of a random scene or detail to add. So a good majority of it has already been laid out. There's a teaser at the end of GAE. Are you saying you want morrrrrrre? ;)

Fun fact: one of the very FIRST scenes I wrote for these characters has somehow ended up at the very end of book 2, and might possibly get bumped to book 3. Funny how that worked out.

Brooke, it's still so surreal for me to hear anyone say they are my fan. But thank you so much! *hugs*

We always want more ;)So most of it is written already then? *squeal of excitement* im so excited to read it once it is released.

Now i am realy intrigued to know exactly what it is that you first wrote for the Kindrily characters thats only going to be in book 2 or 3 :) so how exactly did that happen? Did you write the scene just knowing that it had those characters in it but not where in the books it would go?

Well deserved, my friend :) MWAH!

Nickle Love (nicklelove) | 12 comments I'M SO EXCITED AND I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT! Maybe a little, but I AM UBER EXCITED. I love the Kindrily and want to be part of them. This such a great concept.

I don't want to be your fan, I want to be your friend, so I could tell people I have an awesome friend from the US who writes mermaid novels and lovable characters and she met Ariel in real life! But yeah, I'm a fan. * squeals*


Sylvia Will SNOWGLOBES be featured in book 2 ;) hahaha (Brooke and Karen know what I'm talking about) hehehe

Rebecca Zeno (Becca_Zeno54) | 8 comments So you're saying your also having a third book? *Raises eyebrow* When do you think you will end the series? Will it go on for all eternity? (See what I did there ;))


Karen (KarenHooper) | 43 comments Mod
Laura, yes, a good majority of it is already written. It just needs to be greatly improved since I drafted it years ago. As far as that first scene--I didn't even know Nathan and Maryah's names back then. It was the first scene ever written and I knew their faces and their story, but the rest all came together later. At that point I doubted I'd ever be able to write a complete novel. Thankfully, I was wrong.

Nickle, aww, I consider all my readers friends. *hugs* I want to be part of the kindrily too. I seriously don't know if I'll ever be able to stop writing books about them. That is one break up I don't think I'd be able to handle. Lucky for me, they live forever! Which brings me to Becca's question...

Becca, there will def be a third book. I will prob write about the kindrily until my dying day.

Heinzy, yup! The snowglobe scene has been written!

Rebecca Zeno (Becca_Zeno54) | 8 comments Yay! And I will read about your kindrily until my dying day <3

Can't wait to see the whole series! They are gonna be perfect! :0

llng | 7 comments Downloaded the eARC copy last night on my smartphone and finished reading the book early this morning. Consumed the book! Really a good sequel, still alot questions to solve but hopefully the third book would let us in some of them. It's a good balance with all the characters, I like books with many of characters and how one can grow to like almost all of them, not only the main characters. I wrote a short review but nothing in detail since I don't want to spoil the story for others.

Yeah, haha! I'm so picky with books nowadays so when I find a good novel. I finish it within few hours, max a day. I wanted to rate it 5 star but since it's a series, I tend to want to wait til the end to give the final rating of the whole story. So far the story been really addicting =)

Yes, I hope so too but the second book is not really released yet and we are already waiting for the third to be finished. I'd better re-read the books before I devour the third book when it's released. ;P

Not sure what to read while waiting..so impatient. Haha.
