Kimberly | 37 comments I just finished Sea Glass and I was wondering if we are going to learn more about the Bloodrose clan in the next book?

Yay, Kimberly! Great question. I was going to interview her and ask the same but you beat me to it!


message 3: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) my local bookstore still hasn't gotten it...I is very mad. lol

Alethea A (frootjoos) | 481 comments Mod
:( I checked and you don't have a Borders within 100 miles. Poor you! Practically every one of our stores has it, and early.

Do you go to a local indie bookstore? (and what is it called, I'm fascinated by them)


message 5: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) No I go to Books-A-Million. Its a big bookstore. Not as big as B&N or Borders but still pretty big.

booksamillion.com

Ah, I've never had the pleasure of going to one. We had a Bassett Books in Jersey when I was a kid. Then I think Borders bought it :/

Well, keep pestering (nicely) those Books-A-Million people! I'm sure you're not the only one pining away for Sea Glass!

Reema | 142 comments Nope Kyle is not and now thanks to Mindy (who is soooo wonderful) i won't have to wait very long) - YAY


message 8: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) I might just have to order it but I just made a huge order D: I'll wait till august 25th, the actual release date and if they still don't have it I'll be like 'yo guys! I need this book..you have no idea' lol

Maria V. Snyder (maria_v_snyder) | 186 comments Sightings of SEA GLASS remind me of sightings of Elvis ;> I heard Amazon shipped them out early and many bookstores have it on their shelves....except BAM, according to one annoyed customer *cough* Kyle *cough* :)

I wish everyone would at least wait until the 25th - it's better for my numbers ;>

As for the reason for this post...Yes, the Bloodrose clan will come back in SPY GLASS.

Reema - sorry I haven't emailed. Glad Mindy is helping you - I planned to (see Angee's post - I can't resist), but have been super busy. Not a real surprise - I know :)

I thought you would be real busy with the release and all. Don't worry.

I can't wait to come see you to get my book signed when you come over in Jan, at least now i won't have to wait that long to read the book although i might have to buy a new copy as i will no doubt read my copy to death!

Just as well Mindy is helping as i can't enter the contests! Although i have a great image in my head of a scene in Sea Glass which i would love to sketch if i could draw!
Hope it's all going well :o)


message 11: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) Well I'm glad that BAM's tardiness will be better for your numbers Maria :D

And yall I told MVS that we have to make Sea Glass a best seller to the point that Spy Glass HAS to be HARDCOVER and make it to #1 :D

Yall going to be willing to campaign lol :P

I'm in! Everyone buy a copy tomorrow ^_^ (I already have mine but I owe a bday present to my cousin so guess what she'll receive), hehe.


message 13: by Reema (new)

Reema | 142 comments I'm in for making in #1 but please no hardcover. If they release a hardcover here you can't get it in paperback for like another year!!!!
That will mess up my collection.
The next set can be hardcover.


message 14: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) lol :P Okay no hardcover :P

OMG THEY AREN'T GETTING IT TILL SEPTEMBER 1ST!! I almost blew up on them but I just smiled and nodded...

Amazon is getting my credit card info right now...lol like I would wait till sept. 1 :P

ROTFL, I sooooo know how you feel. Just think i would have had to wait until January!!!!!!!


message 16: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly | 37 comments Sorry that I bought mine early. So why does it not count if I did? Should I go buy another one?


message 17: by Maria (new)

Maria V. Snyder (maria_v_snyder) | 186 comments Kimberly, All book sales count and thank you for buying the book! :) It's just if everyone buys the book in the same week, I might hit the New York Times Bestseller list again :) If it's spread out, then I won't - but it all counts!!

However, if you like to buy one for a friend - this week would be good - LOL ;>


message 18: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (kimberlywithat) | 67 comments Well my friend and I are both buying a copy today!


message 19: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments LOL! Well I feel really stupid- this whole time I've been anxiously waiting for Sept 1 and now I find out you can get it EARLY! :D :D


message 20: by Gisela (last edited Aug 27, 2009 10:19AM) (new)

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 180 comments My Borders doesn't have it yet. When I asked they said they expect it to arrive by mid-September! I pre-ordered it and then went online and found the e-book will be available Sept. 1, so I pre-ordered it as well. One to read Sept. 1 and a physical copy for my collection! Hope e-books count toward your sale numbers Maria!


message 21: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (javallone23) | 11 comments Why was Janco more involved in Sea Glass and Storm Glass than Ari? I loved reading stories about both of them and I am hoping we see some upcoming books about them! :-)


message 22: by Maria (new)

Maria V. Snyder (maria_v_snyder) | 186 comments Thanks Kimberly - you rock!

Jennifer - Janco escorted Opal home for a couple reasons. I needed Opal to have a friend and I thought having both Ari and Janco would be too much focus on them and not on her. And Ari is the smart one who obeys orders- if he had seen the message from the Council, he would have taken them all to the Citadel. And it's harder to get into trouble with both Ari and Janco with you - if it's just Janco, the possibilities are endless ;>


message 23: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) lol love the explanation on Janco Maria :D

OMG...my bookstore still doesn't have!! I am going to open up a can of whoop @$$ on these people! They told me mid-september!?!!? Why?!?! I'll just have to order it lol


message 24: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Kyle- Dang that's really lame. Do you live in a smaller city or is it you're bookstore isn't that up-to-date with its new books?


message 25: by Kyle (last edited Sep 07, 2009 04:31PM) (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) I live in an slightly larger than average city..were one of the largest communties in Alabama..the book store is just really slow at getting SEA GLASS for some reason...

Normally, they get books EARLIER than normal...Im very disappointed in them. REally I should've just gone to Montgomery and gone to the Barnes and Noble, but I was giving BAM some time. :P

EDIT: They got it in while I was in Disney World :D I just finished Catching Fire by Collins so now on to SEA GLASS :D


message 26: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Thats a bummer they were so slow, but I'm very glad to hear you got it!


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Kyle- I hope the book was worth the wait?
I just picked mine up, but I didn't even start reading the "Study" books til Sep 1st.




message 28: by Meme (new)

Meme (mstylp) | 519 comments I have not even got the book yet, everything has been so crazy that I lost track of the release date (can you believe that!!) As soon as I am able to leave the house and be with people again (class as demanded all my time lately) I will be getting this book. Oh wait.. I can get it on e-book can't I? I thought I read a post that said it was out on e-book. Ummm.... OK must go find e-book now, bye.

message 32: by Neko :3 (new)

Neko :3 | 22 comments omg you guys are so lucky!!!

message 33: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Joanne- really?! Why not? That's really lame.


message 34: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Borland (kgborland) really? I thought a bunch of sellers on amazon shipped over seas...


message 35: by Reema (new)

Reema | 142 comments Ok so im about 2/3rds of the way through the book and i am loving it so far.

OMG Alethea - your in the book!!!!! Did you know you were going to be in it? That's so cool and you own a book shop.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

I will sign a petition if we could get it released before Inside Out. :)
I smiled when I saw Aletha's name in the book, that was pretty cool.
I finished Sea Glass in less than a day, I was trying to stretch it out so I wouldn't have to find something else so soon. Guess it doesn't help that I put off doing other things to finish it up either!


message 37: by Alethea (new)

Alethea A (frootjoos) | 481 comments Mod
^_^ Yes, I knew! I wanted it to be a surprise for the people who know me so I didn't tell anyone until it came out. Yep, that's me! And I *wish* I owned a book shop, it would be such a cool place!


message 38: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Alethea- haha I was so surprised by that part in the book- SO cute!!!!! :D You should start your own book shop and it could be the headquarters for Study Buddies!!!


message 39: by Reema (new)

Reema | 142 comments That's a brilliant idea. People would come from everywhere just to see your book shop.


message 40: by Neko :3 (new)

Neko :3 | 22 comments I'VE GOT A COPY!!! all my searching on the internet payed off!
I had to go on to the american amazon version and actually ask someone to ship it over specialy for me.
But I dont care. I just have to wait like 2 an a half weeks she said till it arrives!
Im proper excited! :D


message 41: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Joanne- congrats! I hope you enjoy it!


message 42: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly | 37 comments Alethea if you did own a bookshop I would so come to visit, just like I hope to go to other tourist attractions, it would be So COOL!!! You could name it something like Sitia books, and you could have a little cafe with criollo and coffee LOL, I loved that part of the book too, I laughed and my husband asked me why and I told him that you were over Study Buddies, he thought that was cool, but didn't seem as excited as I was about that part.


message 43: by Alethea (new)

Alethea A (frootjoos) | 481 comments Mod
^_^ That would be awesome! Criollo and coffee, it doesn't get much more Sitian than that :)


message 44: by Reema (new)

Reema | 142 comments Ok finished book. I only have 3 words......

message 45: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Reema- I know! Wasn't it?!?!!


message 46: by Neko :3 (new)

Neko :3 | 22 comments argh! im still waiting for mine to turn up!!! :/


message 47: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 175 comments Joanne- I completely understand. On the positive side you get it in two weeks rather than several months. :)
