Post #2487 – 20090323

I went to barnes and noble a couple of days ago, and I saw a little

book called…


I knew I had to get it, and I loved it! It was undoubtedly stranger

than the first, but that’s why I liked it. I really liked Iggy’s point

of view, though I was the very person that asked why you wanted to

write with her point of view! The only thing I didn’t like was the

ending, because I keep thinking that it would go the way of Crocodile

Dundee. I loved the movie, but still, unless you add your Manus touch,

it would be a little too much like that movie! Anyways, I have a few

questions about the book, first about the publishing: Why did you

decide to publish the book chapter by chapter online first before

publishing it? And why did you decide to publish it while it was still

going online? Now, for a question about the book: WHERE Do you get

these ideas? I mean, I have written some stories myself, but they do

not have as much awesome stories, and as great characters as yours!

Another question: Do you have any realistic fiction books you’ve

written? I really think (if you don’t already have them) that you

would do great as a realistic fiction writer, in addition to fantasy.

Oh great, this message is getting longer than your book! Well, at

least it looks like it on the iPod screen!

I hope to hear from you soon,


Daniel replies:

What do you mean? This _is_ realistic fiction. (Isn't it?) I decided to publish the book online in serial form before it was published in book form because it takes a a year or more for a book to come out after it is handed in, and by the time the author gets feedback, and realizes no one is reading it, he has practically forgotten the book.. I wanted feedback while the book was still fresh, (to me). I wanted to know that no one is reading it _now_. I just handed in the third in the series, ADVENTURES OF A CATWHISKERED GIRL. (Guess who the narrator is this time). I expect it to appear online in the near future.
