Happy New Year

Since it's been a while since my last blog post (sorry!), I'd like to begin by saying something profound...

Yeah, I got nothing. You?

I spent the bulk of December with my family, which was wonderful and very happy-making. I also dove into revisions on my next novel (coming fall 2010), also happy-making. I promise I'll tell you more about it as the year progresses. (Hee-hee!)

For now, just wanted to wish you all a happy new year! Hope you have a wonderful 2010 full of dreams come true!

More soon.....

Happy New Years to you too! I can't wait for your new novel!

Kirthi: Thanks! I'm really excited about it. (I'd say "super-duper-duper excited," but that probably doesn't sound very professional...)

I was just thinking the other day about how it had been an exceptionally long time since you'd posted anything. Lovely to see you're still alive, because you are deeply fabulous and I love to read your blog. I want to read your next book, too, so that you're in the middle of revisions and not drafting is very good news indeed.

You won an award on my blog, and I agree with Q, great to see your alive :)

Dear Sarah Beth Durst,

I really enjoyed your first novel, Into the Wild. I love how you go into detail about how Julie feels but you allow the reader to think and infer some aspects of her personality too. Infact, I am checking the bookstores to see when your next will FINALLY arrive. I can't wait to know what Julie Marchen will attempt to do next. Return to the Wild? Save her Father? Will someone re-grow the Wild? Do we find out who did it the first time - was it Linda the librarian? She always hit me as suspicicious. (But I suppose, I'll have to read and find out!)

Anyway, I'd like to thank you for writing such great literature, and really making me laugh, get excited, and feel sad (when Puss in Boots abandons her, when se is forced to leave her father, etc.)

I also was wondering if you would mind if I used you as my next book review on my website? I rate a book every month or so that I think kids my age would love to read. I think people would find it both intrigueing and fun to read! To see my website, I'll leave my URL at the bottom and if you would like to post to my blog (which not to sound crazy WOULD BE SO COOL its URL is Or, if not, perhaps you would spare your time to write me an email, I'd really love to hear from you, and maybe ask you some questions (I want to be a writer too.)

Thanks again, Ms. Durst!

Your Reader,

P.S. My Mom and Dad got your first book signed when you went to the Borders in Meriden, CT and she said she really enjoyed talking to you. I really wish I could have been there to meet you!

Q: Yep, in revisions and thoroughly enjoying myself. I love revising!

Kirthi: Thanks!!

C: Also, thanks!!

Brooke: Your comment totally made my day. I'm so happy you enjoyed Into the Wild! Please feel free to review it on your site. Also, please feel free to email me with any writing questions you might have. (My email address is in the sidebar.) Sorry I missed meeting you in CT! Hope you enjoy Out of the Wild!
