Can't wait for Book 9!

A friend recommended Julia's books and I mistakenly started with Book 6. Didn't take long to realize I needed to start at the beginning. I was hopelessly hooked, with all 8 books downloaded to my Kindle, and couldn't put them down. I have already read them all twice and now find myself missing all things Russ and Clare, Kevin and Hadley. So glad I found this site.  Julia's books are intelligent, literate and the dialog real. The overlay with scripture and ritual is a nice touch. Love the clips…See More

Series

I have read all your books and enjoyed each one even more than the last.  I like that the series progresses through the relationships and grows on it.

Love/hate the cliffhanger!

What a cliffhanger at the end of Through the Evil Days.  Without spoilers, I was stunned the way it ended and kept saying to myself "that can't be the end of chapter 89, there has to be more to it."  

Great job on the series, I've enjoyed the character and plot development and feel treated with intelligence and often with wonderful sense of humor.  I care what happens to Clare, Russ, baby and Oscar; whether Dep will retire soon, if  and yes, of course, if there is any hope for Flynn…

Book Recommendations 25 Replies

Because I love this series so much, I would be willing to consider any recommendations Julia has. She has gotten me into the Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny. Any other recommendations, either from Julia or from my fellow bloggers?

Sorry about the spam message, everyone!

Once in a while one of those vile crew of internet pirates gets through. Thanks to alert readers Judy, Penny, Kathy and Anne for giving me the heads up. The spammer has been banned and all its messages deleted.

Update for March and April

As I posted over at my Facebook page, I'm pushing hard to get Through the Evil Days finished and in to my editor. As a result, posting will continue to be spotty over here. I will try to keep getting those…

When Will the Next Book be Out?

As you may know, I'm working on the next book in the series. Its working title is SEVEN WHOLE DAYS, but don't count on that to last because the booksellers I've spoken to all went, "Blaaah," when I tried out the title on them. The novel opens about two months after the end of ONE WAS A SOLDIER and, as you might guess from the title, takes place over a single week.

Right now, it looks as if publication will be at the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013. I'll let you know when I…

Wednesday got away from me!

But I finally got this week's excerpt up. Thanks for your patience.

I just found out tonight's my 11-year-old's school choir Christmas concert. It's rainy and cold and all I could think was "Nooooooo....." making me a combination of Bad Mom and Scrooge. The things we do for our kids.

Sorry about the delay getting WIP Wednesday up!

It's been crazy busy and my poor HH's back is out, so I'm doing single-parent duty.
