PRESS RELEASE:

    Oh my goodness you plan on there being a book about each sister? That would be so fantastic! They agreed to do at least two more so that’s good… I cannot wait to read them!!! It’s almost like I wish I didn’t know you were in the middle of writing them… because the suspense… the counting down of the days until time I can get the next book in my hands will make me mad!! 😉

    That’s okay…I’m counting down the days until I need to be finished writing the first one…and it’s REALLY SCARY.

  5. Morgan Says:

    That is so exciting, I LOVED Enchanted!! Will they be added to Goodreads soon so I can add them to my “Want to Read” shelf? I love doing that 🙂 And I truly hope you get to write a book about each sister!
