I've been contacted by these publishers and now can add t... More

Hi, Glenn,

Thank you. I had found this site by accident, but I am enjoying it. I love writing and researching...not published, yet, but determined and can't get writing out of my system.

Have a great day!

Hi Gllen, Nice to meet you, and from New Zealnd too. I'm just getting used to the American market. Lots of fun. I live near Burlington in Ontario but would love to visit New Zealand.
Comment by claudette young on 10/6/2009 at 11:46 PM:
I didn't know you were looking for me last month. I spent most of that month off-line due to computer meltdown from a virus and server problems. All better now, though.
I'm so glad that things are going so well for you, too. Anytime you have a minute, drop by my blog and... more

Comment by Jenni Derfoldy on 8/25/2009 at 9:19 PM:
Hi Glenn, it's been a while. I thought I would pop in say a quick hello. How goes your "wordsmithing". I tried to look at "Dick Tracer" with an objective eye, in terms of punctuation, etc...but I get swept away by the story. Afraid I am not going to be any use to you in that department. My mind refu... more

Hi! Thank you, yes the first image is what I imagine a time machine to look like...but everyone sees something different, it's kinda cool :)

Hi Glenn - Thanks for the welcome. Nope - Midian isn't published... yet. Still working on it though, and in the meantime have moved onto a different sort of novel - a real YA urban fantasy.
Just finished Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows for the kabillionth time - always good motiviation... more

Hi Glenn, sorry for taking so long to reply to your message. Life just got very busy with a house full of teen boys. School holidays here in South Africa. I will respond soon, really soon.

Hiya, Glenn:

Wonderful to hear from you. I enjoyed your profile. Now, I'm trying to get mine to actually offer some images and info!
Wish me luck. I enjoyed your profile.

Thanks Glenn for the warm welcome and congratulations on the publications of your work.

Thank you so much for your comment. People usually don't do that, they just look.
So it's much appreciated.
Comment by Jenni Derfoldy on 6/26/2009 at 8:53 AM:
Hi Glenn...
Just a quick hello, to my fellow Southern Hemisphere author. I am still reading your stories, in amongst doing the regular daily routine thing. It would be quite a graphic novel, just a thought!
Keep well

Glenn -
Meant to leave you a link to my blog @
myspace.com/ettedualc48. I do mostly writer stuff, but occasionally branch out. Feel free to drop by anytime.
Comment by claudette young on 6/20/2009 at 3:26 PM:
Thanks for the welcoming words, Glenn. I'm sorry it took so long to respond. I've been swamped and today isn't much of a change on that.
I'd heard of writers that did what you do, but have never been fortunate enough to know one personally or to know a writer in NZ. That is new for me, t... more

Thank you for the welcome. :) I'm writing in Women's Fiction at the present moment. I do skip around in genres a lot since I'm new in the writing business. Here's a link if you're interested: http://www.webook.com/project/The-Smile-of-a-Child It's nowhere near completed and it's definitely a work i... more

Hi Glen,
Thanks for the warm welcome. Am planning on going to a dig this summer so hopefully Jodie will have a companion soon. Cheers, Anna

G'day Glenn,

I have strong connections with New Zealand so it's great to be welcomed to this site by a Kiwi.

Good luck with your projects.

Funny! Thanks for the giggle - I needed that!
Comment by Germán Becerra Santamaria on 6/15/2009 at 11:44 AM:
Ok thanks for the information. Does any body knows where, can search for this publisher? Geb
Comment by Clint Johnson on 6/15/2009 at 9:14 AM:
Thanks for the interest in the book, Glenn. If you do take a look let me know what you think--just don't be too brutal. A little brutal is fine. And I really like the cover as well. Vinod has done a great job on all the covers in the line.

Hi Glenn,
Thanks for your welcoming from the other side of the world! If you have time, pop up on my website:http://www.cecilebucher.ch/album.html

Hi Glenn,

Yeah think there great. How long they been going in NZ. I heard they where at the Edingbour fridge, way back in 2002. Think they broke over here?
Comment by Jenni Derfoldy on 6/15/2009 at 4:32 AM:
Hello Glenn...
Seems we are almost neighbours, just a tiny bit of water, oh and a landmass or three, between us. There is something oddly comforting in getting a welcome from someone who is also in the same hemisphere as I am, and therefore at the mercy of similar weather (I am not a huge fan o... more
Comment by Pat MacLean on 6/14/2009 at 3:55 PM:
Thanks for the greeting, Glenn. I enjoyed your sequence of photos. Humour is always appreciated. And kudos on your publishing success to date.
Comment by Eamon O'Donoghue on 6/14/2009 at 12:57 PM:
Thanks Glenn! As for who's better, He-man/She-Ra or Hercules & Xena? There's no competition, He-man and She-Ra of course!!
Comment by Jenny Bratton on 6/14/2009 at 12:27 PM:
