Writing is definitely isolating, so when readers take the time to tell you that they enjoyed your work, it is PURE BLISS. Recently I got this amazing note from a parent:
I am writing to let you know how much my daughter loved Anubis Speaks!
We are homeschoolers currently wrapping up our section on Ancient Egypt, when we came across your book. I am so glad we found it.
The majority of the time she was reading this book, she was giggling. It was the first book she picked up to read every morning! She called it “furning” which in our house means fun + learning. 🙂
Thank you for writing such a fun and engaging non-fiction book. We are looking forward to Hades Speaks! and Thor Speaks! We hope you will continue writing books for this series.
It does not get any better than that, folks.
Learning that she giggled while she read my book made my day. Discovering that young Isabella applied her own made-up word for the experience of reading my book made my LIFE.
I now announce that I will officially describe my mythology books as totally FURNING. Thank you Isabella!
Thank YOU for sharing this blog post with us (and the internet world)! We thoroughly enjoy your writing and humor. Please continue to share your books with all of us. She is looking forward to the next book. Here we come Ancient Greece/Rome and Hades Speaks! #furning
