Have to say – I am dying here!
Most writers are such insecure little weasels and I am no exception.
Impatience is my middle name and I have to suck it up and be as patient as possible waiting for feedback from everybody who volunteered themselves and their kids to test drive “The Imaginaeries” for us and give feedback.
Totally understand that people are busy and that this is not like my other books that are a quick read. I mean its 90 whole pages for goodness sake! A novelette.
I’ve had a few great comments back from adults but am now busting to hear what the kids have to say.
“I’ve read it folks and is spontaneous, ingenious, captivating . Big hats off to Ms Stone. Suitable for all ages with a penchant for things faerieistic.” – Peter Sanderson
“My current favourite read! Can’t wait to hold a hard copy in my hands! Signed of course.” – Lisa Chella (Lisa was the first person I sent the book to read and she wants to be our marketing lady so she must like it!)
“I really, really loved the stories. They reminded me of the Enid Blyton I used to read, but somehow friendlier! So, THANK YOU, for letting me have an early look at them.” – Jaynie Padayachee (Jaynes kindly edited the first draft for me too.)
My family think it’s really funny – this me having to wait thing. They are of the opinion that as soon as I think of something I’ve already done it. So they reckon this is a good life lesson for me. Meanies!
