From my mail

It's time for another edition of "From my mail!" This is where I share with you lines from mail that I receive from readers. Thanks to all of you who e-mail me and send me letters - I love hearing from you!

by 3rd grader Eliana
"I love your books because they're fun and once you start reading you can't stop. The truth is I promised only to read the first page but actually read 'till chapter 6. I have two dogs, one a puppy and one an adult. The puppy is obnoxious." ~ Eliana, 3rd grade

"I love your Charmed Life books. You give really good details." ~ Reagan

"Thank you for writing such a fun set of books for girls [the Charmed Life series]. We bought the books when my daughter was 10. She's 12 now and I think we've read the books at least four times. She is dyslexic and does not enjoy reading by herself but loves for me to read to her. I've loved the books as much as she has." ~ Joan

"I just finished Sealed with a Secret and fell in love with it. It helped me with my sister difficulties just like Phoebe." ~ Rushika

"My name is Sarah and I am currently reading My Secret Guide to Paris with my best friend. We are both in sixth grade. My friend that is reading this with me is also named Nora just like the main character. We are obsessed with Paris and love everything about it. That is only one out of a million reasons why we love this book." ~ Sarah

"I believe I read your book It's Raining Cupcakes somewhere between 3rd and 5th grade. I am now a senior filling out college applications. For one of my applications I was asked why I chose my major (entrepreneurship). When thinking back I realized it was your book that made me fall in love with entrepreneurship." ~ Ramsey

"Hello. My friend and I read your book The Day Before. We absolutely loved it. We loved the way it was written and how you used lots of foreshadowing. We would like to know if there is going to be a sequel?" ~ Brenna and Elizabeth

Kirkus Review - KEYS TO THE CITY

The first professional review is in and while I can't share the whole thing yet (it will be online soon), I can share the last line, which is a nice one.

Release date: 5/30/17

"Lindy's journey comforts those in search of themselves. Sweet and familiar Lindy makes this story hard to resist." ~ Kirkus magazine

While I'm here, also want to let you know that THE GIRL IN THE TOWER will be out in paperback on March 28th. Though if you'd like a great deal on the hardcover price, Amazon currently has it for only $6.67. What a deal - not sure how long that will last!
