I got a super nice phone call from Kathy Gordon, the managing editor at my publisher (Covenant ) telling me her cute new husband loves my book.
If I got the story straight (I was a bit muddled from excitement), he is doing a dissertation comparing Mormon YA lit and Jewish YA lit. He remembered Kathy talking about my book and asked if he could read it. She fetched him a copy. (Even though it isn’t out yet, she has the Power.)
Then, he proceeded to gobble it in one day. He wouldn’t put it down. He took it to the bathroom and didn’t come out for a half hour. His adult son was visiting and got ignored, because Dad was busy reading. He loved it! He asked her to find out if I was writing a sequel.
Yay! And yes. I’m working on the sequel now, like at this moment.
