Ooh, congrats on getting the book published, and Candlewick puts out some wonderful titles from my experience in young adult and children's literature classes. I'll have to remember to check it out sometime.
Comment by Ashley Pasco on 4/11/2007 at 2:03 PM:
like the add blog button? That one? I am usually better at figuring things out than this, haha.

And thanks, I was just trying not to be too similar to anything you or anyone else is writing. LOL. I am just trying to be a little careful. You know? :)
Comment by Ashley Pasco on 4/8/2007 at 4:46 PM:
Happy Easter!!! :)

Hey, I have a really silly question . . . LOL. How do I get my LJ blog on here like you did? I'm not too sure how that's done, ROFL.
Comment by Ashley Pasco on 4/5/2007 at 8:04 PM:
No problem. :) I hope you have a good evening. I'm going to get off of here and go write now. :) I think have just been inspired again.
Comment by Ashley Pasco on 4/5/2007 at 7:26 PM:
Okay, you have me hooked. Your book sounds brilliant. I can't wait until it's available.

Hi Jo!

Thank you for accepting my add. And congrats on your first novel being published! I have to admit that the title definitely caught my attention. I shall have to look it up online and see if there is any information out on your book yet.

Comment by Pamela Ross on 2/16/2007 at 6:57 PM:
A question: how do we get the blog entries we've written at LJ to show here? Are you copying and pasting or is there a more technologically advanced way?

Technologically premature,
Pamela
