I loved this look into your process!! These books were amazing, and all I ever want to do with things I love is dissect them to find out how it all came together πŸ˜‚

This was an amazing newsletter!! Also, I love listening to your audio narration and you reading that chapter was πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ 😘 πŸ‘Œ . I read Aurora Rising awhile back so to see your original notes and hear how it grew into the final product... as a writer myself, I thought that was really fun to see

I love it about the pink Barbie bus! I took my 6 y/o granddaughter to see the film yesterday. First we went to the store and bought her first Barbie. It looks just like her (dark hair, brown eyes)! I let her pick out an outfit - pink rainbow dress - and off we went! It was the best time! I can't wait to one day share your books with her! She's a huge sci-fi nerd like me, so she'll love them! :)

Thanks for another great newsletter! Love the behind the scenes peeks πŸ’š

Also how freaking cool for your daughter, a double decker barbie bus?!

I also LOVED the Monk and Robot books, I hope we get more in that world. Cozy is such a good word for them.

I can’t believe that my picture with the stack of books is in the newsletter - 2 books coming from Romania!!! β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

This made my day and my week and all my year😍😍😍

I have looked and looked to see where the picture from the event will be posted and I totally didn’t expect this 😍😍😍

And the writing process from Aurora, they are priceless β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

I knew why Illuminae and Aurora are my fav books ever 😍😍😍
