    Congratulations on getting through so much! You’re right though, and I hadn’t realised while reading the novel that there actually was far too little time between these event for Anwen and Alaric to actually change and understand each other.

    I’m glad you’re editing the novel as I can definitely see it being published one day (and if it’s not published in Australia, I will be so unhappy) (and if you don’t come to Australia and promote the book I will be very unhappy). Okay, I wanted to add a mountain of things you have to do, but the most important thing you have to do is have your novel published! Even if I can’t get it in Australia, I would definitely order it!

    Keep on soldiering on Mara, you’ll do well, I’m sure!

      Yeah, SO much happens. I mean… I could probably make a novel out of the first ten chapters. And I finished reading it yesterday after blogging… and so much MORE happens. It’s ridiculous. 😀

      Hahaha! I’ll do my best!

    So, I stopped reading the lists after chapter 2… like you I actually had thought more time had passed between happenings, but since I read it all in 2 nights I’m not sure why I felt that way. Anyway, I agree you need to finish it so you can start editing so you can publish it so — I can get one given to me by you since we’re friends ;).

    Also, you do look like a secretary today. A very pretty one indeed.

      Hehe, there is a lot going on. I think perhaps because the chapters are so long, it feels like more time has passed? I don’t know. 😀

      Thank you.

      Hehe. Some of the things on the list were meant to be funny, so it’s okay. Siggy was one of them– actually, one of my readers could never remember how to spell his name (nor can I) so she just called him Siggy. I thought it was hilarious!

      Thank you.

    First, I LOVE the outfit, it looks so cool! You look more like a teacher actually.. A gorgeous one 🙂 You should wear red lipstick more often!

    Now onto this awesome list! You are kidding right? I LOVE the story! I really do. Personally, I adore it when there are a lot of things going on in a book, and this one seems to be so freaking perfect! I know it’s something I would definitely buy and I wish that one day I will see it published! I so want to read the whole thing, it’s really interesting! And what if some things are a bit unrealistic? IT’S A BOOK! 😀 Love it! Good luck with the editing, although I’m sure it’s already perfect 😀

      Hehe. Two of the other jobs I’d want– other than being an author– are secretary, or a writing teacher. I LOVE teaching people how to improve their writing. 😉

      Haha, I like it when lots of things happen in a book as well, it’s just that the time lapse is not realistic given the emotions that everyone is feeling. So I mostly just need to give the characters more time to interact and develop. 😀 <3
