Caught up with my emails!

Hooray!!  Early this morning I responded to all my emails  (except the ones regarding the contests - my sister-in-law is doing them for me - she's super organized - but I still sign the books and labels).  Of course a bunch of replies rolled in while I was sleeping, so I'm not longer "caught up" but I was for a few hours at least :)  One reason is I'm not getting as many emails as before (not complaining!), and I think it's becasue of Facebook - I get many comments on my author page and regular page, and they're quick to answer.  Plus I don't have a new release out, which always generates lots of emails (again - not complaining!).

Am I the only author who responds to their emails?  Just curious.  I think it's very important and do dedicate much time to it - which is why I'm so bad about blogging.

In the process of cleaning out my inbox, I encountered a few gems.  I have an author interview with Jon Sprunk to post with a contest/giveaway. I will do that this week -so stay tuned.  And, of course links to two interviews.  I'll post them below.

I also cleaned out my office - it was a mess.  And I need to start writing book 2 of the healer series, SCENT OF MAGIC and, for some reason (uh...procrastination?) I need to have a clean desk and office floor (the piles of books are put away!).  So now I'm all set to start :)   Oh and in the process of cleaning out, I have put together a pile of books to give away to my blog readers - so stay tuned for a couple contests :)

  3. I just picked up on the fact that you are writing the 2nd book of the Healer series. Is the first one out yet? If so, what is the title? I usually follow you pretty closely, but, with knee surgery, I might have missed a book out. Tell all, please ~_^ .

  4. You are my favourite author and when I emailed you, you answered my questions and also sent me a few links and I thought that was really nice! :)
    When is the first book of your Healer series out? I can't wait to read it! :) Good luck with writing your second Healer book :)

  5. I am seriously excited about your Healer series. I also enjoy a good high fantasy novel, but with all the vampires and werewolves it has been hard to find anything other than urban fantasy.

  6. Thanks for the comments - I do understand why some authors don't have the time to respond to each email/comment personally - but I enjoy it too much :) so I make the time.

    As for TOUCH OF POWER - that's the first healer book - it's coming out early January 2012 in the US - and close to that time for the UK. I'm not sure about the Australian edition. If you want to read the cover blurb/copy - I posted it back in Feburary under the blog title "Novel Number Nine" :)

    @Tine - I hope you're knee heals quickly - I'd send Avry, the healer from TOUCH OF POWER to you, but I need her to help me figure out the next book!

  7. Hi~! I'm a new follower :) I hopped over from your Goodreads page, after adding your books to my TBR pile (I've seen some really great reviews of the Insider series recently and how could I say no to a great book!?)
    So, yeah, just wanted to say Hello~ and you got yourself a new stalker :)
    I'm looking forward to reading your books! And thank you for being such a sweet person and replying to all the emails - I'm only a book blogger but I can relate to being swamped with emails and I know how much dedication it takes to reply to all of them. And that officially makes you AWESOME! :)

  11. Hi, I'm a new fan (stalker :D) Just read Posion Study yesterday, and now I really, really, really want to read Magic Study!

    Anyways, I don't know of any author that responds to their emails the way you do! And expect 6 emails from me/people I know :)
