Re: Tessa Faith guest blogs

I have to make a post with my comment about Tessa's guest blog post appearance because honestly what she sent me shocked me.  At first she was debating over whether to write a long review or a short story, and when she told me she was writing a short story based on an actual conversation she and her sister had about Cursed with Power I was entirely shocked.  Shocked.

After reading the short story tonight I honestly am smiling my face off.  I can't remember how Tessa and I ran into each other on inkpop, but if it wasn't for this girl --my fellow bloggers--I probably would lose motivation easily.  I've never had somebody so deeply involved in a project of mine before.
Please make sure you read Tessa's post for her guest blogging moment.  It's really meaningful...or at least it is  to me.  I never thought anybody could have a conversation about a book I wrote.  Turns out it's possible.

Tessa: Thank you so much.  Every time I read a comment from you or you do something like this to promote/support the book(s) in the Magicians series I become more motivated to write my absolute best.  You have to be one of my biggest fans out there right now.
There's people who read a book because everyone else is....and then there's people who read a book simply because they're curious.  I'm glad you were curious, Tessa.  As I'm re-writing my book I find it really all is worth it, and even though I have a long ways to go and there are a lot of paths ahead of me you really do keep me writing.
You have all my thanks and many virtual hugs.

  1. Awww, that was a great post. Tessa is a wonderful blogging friend to have.

  2. Hi Lindsey, I came over from Summer's blog. Nice to meet you. I'll read the review in a moment.

    Your blog is awesome. However, some of the side bar is unreadable, for me anyway. The ink blends in with the background.

  3. Hi, Lindsey, I popped over from Summer's blog. Nice to meet you. The books sound awesome and love the soothing blueness of your blog.

    I look forward to more posts. :)


  4. *blushes to the very tips of ears* Ohh! I feel so important! I'm glad I could make you smile.

    As for how we met, I found and commented on 'Sketching a Fashionable Future' and then I liked it so much that I read some of your other things...And it turned into this, :D.

  5. You should feel important because you did make me smile and you totally rock my world:P
    Ah so that's how. I couldn't remember. Wow, I can't believe you remember the first project of mine you read. (And Sketching a Fashionable Future was so entirely different from what I normally write...and especially nothing like this series).

  6. Nancy: I'm switching the color. It's difficult finding a color that's visible because of the light blue background.
    Pk: Thanks for the welcome and I'm glad you dropped in. I'm always posting:)
