i cant wait for the fourth book for witch hollow to come out !!!! that was an awesome cliff hanger you put in the end of the third book ! i kind of figured it out though when dickens was smelling her hair......... but still! cant wait!
Wow, Tegan, you have guessed it really early. You're an attentive reader :)I am working on the 4th book right now and plan to publish it in February, 2014.Thank you for your comment; I love hearing from my readers.Happy New Year!
Just finished Witch Hollow and the Wrong Spell. Read volume 2, Witch Hollow and the Fountain Riddle, enjoyed it and went looking for volume 1, which happily was still free. Enjoyed it too and am planning on buying volumes 3 & 4 in a few weeks, the budget is tight. Read your blog and was surprised that you are not a native speaker. Thought about it and remembered a few places where idioms might have been used if you were a native speaker, but they were not necessary. It is not easy to write with idioms, I read current books written and published in the UK and when they use some idioms I have no idea what they mean, I have to guess from the context. Your books have a nice flavor. They are not the usual formula with the usual drop in dialogue. You stated a YA readership but the vocabulary and dialogue were not limited to the ages of the characters and younger allowing older readers to enjoy them too. I am a 64 year-old grandma. The books are well constructed; the story moves along well and does not bog down as many books by newer authors do. I will enjoy seeing the changes in your writing as you gain experience. I will be ready for volume 5 soon. Any idea on a release date? Thanks for the enjoyable books. Judy - Kansas, USA.
Judy, thank you so much for your beautiful message. It means the world to me.If you still haven't bought the 3rd and 4th books, then don't. I will happily send them to you as gifts. You have noted right, I still have a lot to learn. I'm not writing Witch Hollow series to earn money (though I need money as much as any other person), but to learn to write in English and gain experience. Just drop me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the books. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the sequels and whether my writing has improved with the latest books.I am working on the last part now and plan to publish it at the end of winter.With love,Irena
