I love getting feedback. Tonight, I was handed a letter from a year 5 girl who has just read Harriet & the Secret Rings. It's junior fiction, so she is in the target age group. I quote in part...."Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I thought it was excellent! I was very excited when Dad gave it to me. I wasn't 100% sure you gave me your own work or J.K. Rowling's. Your writing is so descriptive that it paints an image in my mind. I could see the beautiful town, the (classmate's) bright orange tongue and my favourite-the heritage listed library. I laid down in bed and started reading. Half an hour later (8.30-lights out) I was up to chapter 5 and I was loving it! I think Dad forgot I was up reading because he came int to switch off the lights at 9.00! The next day we were travelling and I was still reading your book! (I have never really done this before because I usually get quite car sick.) Then I read some more that night and this morning I finished the last 2 chapters. Congratulations on getting your book published and let me know if you ever write another!" Well, I am. Re-visiting the first novel (I had put in on the back-burner), with the same protagonist and best friend, editing it to tie in with this one. Great encouragement.
