    Hi PBW,

    I just finished reading THE DEEPEST EDGE and I wanted to say Thank You for such a great story! I enjoyed it alot, and plan to find more Jessica Hall books!


  2. From your Top Ten list on the old blog:

    Why don't you come down to Florida for a week? I'll beat the hell out of you for free.

    Dear god, I think I love you.

    No, not like that. Please put the duct tape away.

  3. I thought JKRowling would've been in the most translated books category.

  4. Looking at the Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, I guessed correctly that Richard Goldberg was a paedophile. I daresay I would cross the road if I saw somebody as ugly as him coming towards me. *shudder*

  5. thank you, thank you!! Your Signs of Workshop overload, Holt's ten mistakes--you're better than any old conference. Cheaper, anyway.

  6. PS so which three writers use second person pov effectively?
