It all started with your book. I resisted it at first. Perhaps in the way a vampire with morals resists feeding on humans. Not to say that there is anything amoral about your books. I had just suspected that your book was no good for me. And once I did begin to read it, it was a bit like free-basing. Like wanting something just beyond the prose, turning each page, knowing it is totally unhealthy. How do you make me want more so much? Thank you for Bella and Edward, for what is forbidden between them, for your skill at gripping the reader. I hope someday that someone wants to read my book as much as so many people want to read yours. As always (riveted), Tina
Here's a related but side thank you: Dear Courtney Summers, Thank you for this blog entry. It made me laugh. And I read the whole long thing--maybe you've got something that Stephanie Meyer's got. Thank you also for putting your chapters out there to read, for free. I read them all too. I liked your narrator. She's a lot more mysterious than Bella. As Always(maybe just this once), Tina
I have an MFA in creative writing, an unpublished YA novel under my belt and in a drawer, my second, a novella, is nearly done. Click through the door below to write with me in The Practice Room (follow this link to read more about it). I post the schedule each Sunday - like clockwork. On the blog, I post whenever I like.
