    Deb, I feel that it’s such a GREAT accomplishment that you’ve written so many works! I’d love to read a post here about when that initial “spark” happened for you: What made you decide to write your first work? I guess many of us tell people, “I want to write a book,” or “I have a book in me,” but so many of us, don’t actually do it (and some of us do, even though they sit unread in our PCs!); and I love to read your thoughts on self-publishing—and how the process has been, for you—Fulfilling? Frustrating? Et cetera…

      Writing them is easy(ish)! It’s editing them that feels endless. Sometimes I read passages from TMD and think, “I wish I could go back and edit this now that I’ve learned still more!” Then again, that would defeat one of the key purposes of my having published it: to free myself from working endlessly on one novel and allow myself to grow by creating and improving others. I wrote more about this in the first entry on my very short-lived Blogger blog: On writing books & golden stars. I know I’ve touched piecemeal on things I’ve learned since, but I do nevertheless mean to write an anniversary update early next year! There is, after all, so much I’ve learned/changed/done since.

        Well, I’d say that you were born to write (and to become your son’s mother)! I enjoyed reading your “On writing…” post. Looking forward to the Anniversary Update, too.

        I have an interview going up 11/10 that will touch on some of these things, too. I’ll be linking it here!

    Deborah- you had asked if I’d ever written about our time in Korea and I hadn’t. This was a post written about Korea from a kid’s perspective (both my daughter’s and my own)…you may recognize some of what I talk about here. http://crittersandcrayons.com/2011/11/06/south-korea-101-all-you-really-need-to-know/

    Hi Deb! I am so impressed at your written works. How many years did you spend in Korea? I grew up in Asia so I always find it interesting to see how others found their way there.

    A friend of mine writes book/movie reviews for horrornews.net and I would like your permission to maybe give him one of your books (The Monster’s Daughter) He’s always looking for new and interesting read and they are looking at expanding to a wider audience including YA and more fantasy series. Let me know how you feel about this.

    Hi Deborah! I’ve been following your blog for several months now, and have just recently become a staff reviewer at the Uncustomary Book Review (http://www.uncustomarybookreview.com/). I greatly encourage you to submit any (all!) of your books for review, because I would love to review them for you. You can request me as a reviewer also, if you wish. Just ask for Rachel Castleberg.

    Hi Deb….stopped by to see what I could order….help me out! Didn’t know you have multiple titles to choose from! You rock! Any suggestions where to start or should I just plunge in?
