Dear friends:

I'm coming to the end of my wonderful vacation over here in paradise. Thanks to all of you for keeping me in touch with the mainland. :) I'll do a new post at the end of the week, when I'm --sigh--back in the real world. But for now, here's photo of my yard in Hawaii, taken at magic hour. And that's not a book plug. Honest...


ps: sorry if it's sideways. You know I'm still learning this stuff... :)

I just discovered your books, and have already read three in one week, including Firefly Lane. I spent all day curled up on the couch reading it, and yes finished it in one day (there's not much to do here in the western maine mountains). Just like the other two books (Mystic Lake, Magic hour) I finished it in tears. I'm totally hooked on your books, and you have become one of my favorite authors. I just spent sixty dollars at barnes and noble purchasing seven more of your books, and i'm saving up to buy the last six. Enjoy the fleeting days of your vaction and hurry home, i know all of your fans are waiting eagerly for your next book

Let me try to work up some sympathy for having to leave Hawaii and come back to the real world. *squiching up my eyes real tight* It's hard, but there's an inkling of sympathy.

I finally got around to reading Heart-Shaped Box. It's definitely creepy and a nice change of pace.

Dear Misty Blue---

Welcome! I'm so glad to hear how much you're enjoying the books. Which one is your favorite so far? What do you normally read and how did you discover me?

Also, keep a lookout for Waiting for the Moon. If I remember correctly, that one was set in Maine. I hope I didn't make any horrendous mistakes. :)

Dear April:

LOL!! Believe me, I'm not getting any sympathy for anyone for having to come home. I have to say, though, I'm ready. It's time to get back to work. Will you be going to RWA this summer?

Leaving Hawaii to come back to the real world. That must be tough. :) I know I'm ready to leave the real world for a spell and go somewhere magical, but that's not going to happen any time soon. I lived vicariously through your posts and pictures. Thank you for sharing this part of your life with us.

And speaking of Magic Hour, it's my book club pick for June. Are you open to my emailing you some questions about the story? It's one of my favorite books and I'm glad my book club let me choose it. :)

Hi Kristin..

I don't know about anyone else, but I cannot see any picture that you mention in your recent post. Did you put it somewhere else, like perhaps your gallery? I tried to post yesterday, but for whatever reason, the post obviously did not get to you.

Go David!! :) Which one, though???

Hi again!

I honestly don't know if I could pick a favorite, there is so much I loved about all three. I love the friendship in Firefly Lane, it's something I have never had. I was Katie in high school(I might not have been unstylish and have pimples, but I was over weight and that's just as bad), but sadly I never found a Tully. I can relate with the mother daughter relationship. I was so rotten as a teen, but now (beside's my husband) my mom is my closest and only friend.
I have always read those trashy romance novels ;O) not that there is anything wrong with them, but lately I've been looking for books with more substance. I happened to come across Mystic Lake at my favorite book store (Mr. Paperback) I was hooked by page four, and crying by page 12!
Magic Hour was my next buy, every now and again I like to read suspense or thriller novels, Magic Hour was perfect for that, kept you wondering..who did it without losing the tender romantic side of a romance novel.
Waiting for the Moon was one of the books I purchased from Barnes and Noble, and now that you told me it's in Maine I will read that one first! I can't wait until they come in!
I have two book cases filled with books, and I have been cleaning off a shelve (right next to my other favorite authors Janet Chapman and Ann Leigh)Because I plan on keeping all your books to reread a hundred times :O)
I have often dreamed of writing my own novel, but as I'm sure you can see by this post my spelling and grammar are
Do you ever come to Maine? Maybe for book signings?
Oh yea, and i don't see any picture either.

I will not be going to RWA this summer. I would love to, but it's very far away from the East Coast, and we do have a baby now (barely made it to RWA last summer all pregnant-y). I WILL be there next year when it comes to me!

i haven't posted before...because i just realised you had a website haha. Anyway, I first started reading your books when i was 12 (2 years ago). I was at my grandma's house and I saw that she owned Angel Falls so I decided to read it-and i loved it, and i still do- and I just finished reading Firefly Lane, a couple days ago, I love that book! it's so good! But my favourite would either have to be Between Sisters, The Things We Do For Love, Or Home Again (I've read Magic Hour, Angel Falls, Between Sisters, Home Again, Comfort and Joy, Firefly Lane, Distant Shores, When Lightning Strikes, If You Believe, Summer Island, On Mystic Lake, and Waiting for the Moon), I love reading, a lot of people my age find it odd, haha, but I really do and you are my favourite author!
