  1. Mira Tudor, I’m a purchaser of your PALS novel so it’s super-interesting to read reviews. It’s too bad that Amazon has stopped hosting that novel competition that so many NaNoWriMo participants prepared for. The last one permitted submissions of previously published works, with restrictions. Your Poets, Authors, Lovers would have won hands down, in my opinion!

I appreciate your kind words, but it’s hard to win contests with so much talent among writers 🙂 But your comment is encouraging, and I hope to reach more readers with each new book. Right now I’m writing a sequel to PAL and planning a PAL trilogy (while making sure that each book in the series can be read on its own).
