2/5/2009 21:16:41 Betsy the Quilter : don't worry about spoilers for me, I won't look
2/5/2009 21:16:48 Beth A : and I just started sunday
2/5/2009 21:17:01 kreelanwarrior : Sheesh!
2/5/2009 21:17:31 kreelanwarrior : Okay, just for fun: BK what do you think is going to happen in the rest of the chapter (4)?
2/5/2009 21:18:08 ScrappingForever : wow beth!
2/5/2009 21:18:12 ScrappingForever : speed reader!
2/5/2009 21:18:27 bkworm8it : Well i'm thinking they have to get the kids out by walking them. If they could have beamed them out they would have without going in. So I think there will be another meeting with Reza and the preastess
2/5/2009 21:18:47 bkworm8it : Unless they can walk things other than themselves through walls
2/5/2009 21:19:24 kreelanwarrior : I think she's onto something! ;)
2/5/2009 21:19:41 Betsy the Quilter : hey, let me interject one piece of business...
2/5/2009 21:19:46 ScrappingForever : hmm....you're going to love what comes next!

2/5/2009 21:20:07 Betsy the Quilter : you know the chat is being transcripted, Jan, you don't have to copy and paste?
2/5/2009 21:20:22 bkworm8it : What? my cold finally goeas away and I finish the book LOL:p
2/5/2009 21:20:41 kreelanwarrior : HAHA!
2/5/2009 21:20:50 kreelanwarrior : That sucks about your cold, though. Never any fun. :(
2/5/2009 21:20:58 bkworm8it : Did I hear right that there is a second book?
2/5/2009 21:21:14 bkworm8it : Worse part is its turning into bronchitis and I answer the phones at work
2/5/2009 21:21:15 kreelanwarrior : Well, I have ideas for three prequels...
2/5/2009 21:21:23 ScrappingForever : yep betsy. saw that harvey got that fixed up.
2/5/2009 21:21:23 ScrappingForever : thanks.
2/5/2009 21:21:25 kreelanwarrior : oh, man, that's awful!!
2/5/2009 21:21:31 bkworm8it : prequels? no sequals?
2/5/2009 21:21:55 ScrappingForever : sorry for the delay. one of my teachers has a class starting at scrap girls, so i'm flipping back and forth between chats.
2/5/2009 21:21:57 kreelanwarrior : well, jan's been after me for a sequel, but i don't have a vision of it yet.
2/5/2009 21:22:08 bkworm8it : Hey I can't complain first one in 1 year,.. If i go without dairy I don't catch them but I cheated and knocked my emune system out 8)
2/5/2009 21:22:09 ScrappingForever : and i just found out that she ahs a kindle! good girl!
2/5/2009 21:22:21 kreelanwarrior : LOL!
2/5/2009 21:23:11 bkworm8it : Well if no sequal does that mean something bad happend to Reza? or the war ended and everyone lives happily ever after?
2/5/2009 21:23:14 kreelanwarrior : i started typiing just a bit on the next book - about the start of the human-kreelan war. then i was thinking maybe a book on tesh-dar's life up until that, and then reaching waaaaay back to the foundation of the First Empire.
2/5/2009 21:23:24 kreelanwarrior : No spoilers! ;)
2/5/2009 21:23:40 bkworm8it : heheheh....
2/5/2009 21:23:52 bkworm8it : I would like to hear how it all started..
2/5/2009 21:23:54 Beth A : I like all those ideas
2/5/2009 21:23:56 Betsy the Quilter : I've only started reading and I wanted to say that the dedication made me tear up
2/5/2009 21:24:02 kreelanwarrior : although i will say that i think you'll like the ending. i hate books that have crappy endings. :(
2/5/2009 21:24:18 kreelanwarrior : well, the dedication was very true!
2/5/2009 21:24:23 bkworm8it : Me too best dedication I've seen, Short and to the point!
2/5/2009 21:24:56 kreelanwarrior : okay, book trivia...any guesses when this book was written?
2/5/2009 21:24:59 Betsy the Quilter : if the ending is half as good as the dedication, it's bound to be good!
2/5/2009 21:25:00 Beth A : (I dont remember it)
2/5/2009 21:25:29 kreelanwarrior : hint: it's NOT the copyright year (which was 2008).
2/5/2009 21:25:34 Betsy the Quilter : hmmm, when you wrote it?
2/5/2009 21:25:35 bkworm8it : Well now I know its a happy ending. Guess I can stop reading now
2/5/2009 21:25:42 Betsy the Quilter : 2003?
2/5/2009 21:25:52 bkworm8it : 1996?
2/5/2009 21:25:58 Beth A : 2001
2/5/2009 21:26:15 bkworm8it : 2002
2/5/2009 21:26:35 Beth A : 84
2/5/2009 21:26:38 kreelanwarrior : BK - you're closest. I think I finished the first draft (minus a bunch of revisions) in around 1994.
2/5/2009 21:26:58 ScrappingForever : LOL BK
2/5/2009 21:27:00 bkworm8it : lol. I almost said 94 too.
2/5/2009 21:27:27 bkworm8it : and I was just being funny
2/5/2009 21:27:28 kreelanwarrior : i tried shopping it around to a number of publishers, collected rejection notices, then stuffed it under my desk until the KINDLE came out. then decided to self-publish to the kindle store.
2/5/2009 21:27:41 Betsy the Quilter : wow! great story...
2/5/2009 21:27:52 kreelanwarrior : that was last year. so lots of dust bunnies on those e-ink pages! ;)
2/5/2009 21:28:01 bkworm8it : That's sad. They soo don't know what they missed out on. I more than likely would have picked it up to read back then
2/5/2009 21:28:09 Beth A : have your sales been good?
2/5/2009 21:28:13 ScrappingForever : well, it did get read at one point in between, by me. lol
2/5/2009 21:28:23 kreelanwarrior : <my editor!>
2/5/2009 21:28:28 ScrappingForever : reading the separate photo copied pages. lol
2/5/2009 21:28:50 bkworm8it : Was it during or after it was written?
2/5/2009 21:29:00 kreelanwarrior : i can't complain about the sales - most self-published authors are lucky to sell a few copies. i've probably sold a couple hundred since april last year. not exactly a blockbuster, but it's hard even to get reviews if you're self-published.
2/5/2009 21:29:32 bkworm8it : Is it also in paperback? I don't pay much attention anymore since kindle
2/5/2009 21:29:33 kreelanwarrior : BK - what did you mean during or after it was written?
2/5/2009 21:29:58 kreelanwarrior : it's on kindle, in paperback (a BIG paperback - 680 pages!), and mobipocket.
2/5/2009 21:30:15 bkworm8it : Did she read/edit while you were writing it or after you were finished? I had a freind who read her husbands book as he wrote it
2/5/2009 21:30:45 bkworm8it : Good, I want to get a copy for my sister and her husband. They like the same types of books
2/5/2009 21:30:46 kreelanwarrior : oh, jan read it long after it had been written.
2/5/2009 21:30:54 kreelanwarrior : cool! :)
2/5/2009 21:31:25 ScrappingForever : yeah. after it had been written, rejected and sitting in a box collecting dust bunnies.
2/5/2009 21:31:29 bkworm8it : That's good, She would have gone crazy if she was left on a cliff hanger waiting for you to finish LOL.
2/5/2009 21:31:39 kreelanwarrior : i would have been beaten!
2/5/2009 21:31:54 bkworm8it : Them are some big dust bunnies :eek:
2/5/2009 21:32:32 kreelanwarrior : beth - question for you: what did you think of the cover art vs. the person you meet up with starting in chapter 5? <close your eyes, BK! LOL!>
2/5/2009 21:32:34 bkworm8it : So Beth, did you actually finish the book? I didn't look up the location because I didn't want to accidently read anything
2/5/2009 21:32:35 ScrappingForever : ha!
2/5/2009 21:32:37 ScrappingForever : i'll say!
2/5/2009 21:33:19 Beth A : i thought the cover art was a little off
2/5/2009 21:33:23 bkworm8it : going to grab a bagel go ahead and talk LOL
2/5/2009 21:33:30 kreelanwarrior : hey, get me one, too!
2/5/2009 21:33:43 Beth A : i'm about 2/3rds through it
2/5/2009 21:34:19 kreelanwarrior : yeah, the cover art is as close as i could get with photoshop - i had to do that, too! LOL!
2/5/2009 21:34:50 Beth A : I like the cover, but it doesnt match what I imagine
2/5/2009 21:34:58 bkworm8it : I'm baaack, hey with your screen name I'm begging to think that Kreelanwarrior is a good character?
2/5/2009 21:34:59 ScrappingForever : that's always a problem, isn't it.
2/5/2009 21:35:07 ScrappingForever : i think it's the horny eyebrows. lol
2/5/2009 21:35:15 kreelanwarrior : no pun intended!! <snork>

2/5/2009 21:36:48 Dori : Have not had time to get on the boards much lately but am reading the book
2/5/2009 21:36:59 bkworm8it : So your actaully a blue girl? :?
