Hi, Deobrah. I might have been going the wrong way about this, but I just messaged everybody on Lit Fiction Writers about a way to go possibly private. Which where on the Central Coast? Or should you keep that private? Was it San Luis Obispo? Did you ever go to the Santa Boo Writers' Conference before it defuncted? Do you know Catherine Ryan Hyde?

Deborah, I tried to subscribe to get emails re: your blog posts, but I'm not sure I was successful.  I have trouble following any other way, haven't got the hang of that...Hopeful that it worked out...

Deborah, I was very glad to hear from you! Thank  you so much for your kind response.  I do hope you feel encouraged by all that's shared here, and that includes me! I'm glad we're friends as well!

It has been a blast getting to know you, Deborah. And I hope we will get to know each other even more! I look forward to reading more of your blog posts! :)

Thank you so much Deborah! I'd love to get to know you better as well! I love your blog, it's very personal and extremely well written!

Loved those author photos- what on earth is that on Mark Twain's head?

Deborah--I mentioned this idea to my daughters, and they were excited!  Thanks for taking a look at my blog and commenting.  We look forward to reading your chapters.  Kelly

Hi Deborah--I think my daughters would love to read sample chapters of the MG book. MG lit is so great in part because it targets an age when adults still read with kids, so it has to appeal to both.  I so enjoy the books we've discovered over the years. Maybe if you email me your sample chapters (whenever you're ready) as a PDF, I can get them onto my Kindle--or just print out.  You can email me at khaupair [at] msn [dot] com.  My only concern is that if they love it, they will not be happy to have to wait to read the rest!

At 8:46pm on February 13, 2013, Kelly Hand said…

Deborah--I really enjoyed reading some of your blog posts, and would love to read the middle grade adventure series with my daughters (8 and 11).  Your experiences sailing around the world sound fascinating.  While I'm envious of you living on the Central Coast (I grew up in Los Angeles and was an undergraduate at UC Santa Cruz, so I'm familiar with the gorgeousness of what's in between), but as global warming reclaims shoreline, I do think sailing will be the best way to revel in the intermingling of land and sea.

Thank you for the warm welcome Deborah.  I'm happy to be here, and I look forward to getting to know you and your writing.  What an amazing journey it must have been to sail around the world!  It's a pleasure to have people such as yourself on this wonderful website.
