    Congrat­u­la­tions! I still haven’t gotten around to reading the offi­cial version, but I’m glad it’s getting expo­sure. Yay!

    P.S. I started crying as I read some of the comments to your Big Idea, so I had to stop.

    Offi­cial version of SILENCE, that is.

    I’ve been recom­mending Silence left and right ^^.

    You know I imagine I have iden­ti­fied one of your favourite stories to tell (yes, I’ve read almost all your books — I own all of them — and it just now came to me — I’m slow), could you tell me if that is correct or not?

    I have the feeling that you often have a central female char­acter (often the main protag­o­nist) who is in posses­sion of some awesome power (whether polit­ical, magic, beauty, intel­lect, etc.), whether inher­ited, aimed for or unasked for bestowed upon — and they use it to either create a family for them­selves or protect their family or avenge their family (with family meaning all truly close rela­tion­ships, not just birth family).

    Read the piece you wrote about your book on “What­ever” Thank you for that. A balm to the last nerve that gets plucked every time my teen age daughter watches another “Gossip Girl” episode :-)

    TV is tricky because it’s one of the social topics of discus­sion; if you miss certain movies or tele­vi­sion shows, you’re out of the talk loop when it turns to them. I try to think of it as a social bonding exercise >.>
