I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed having the fans who came over our house for the first-ever Fairy Tale Novel Fan Gathering. Though I was really unsure as to how it would work out, I am so glad everyone had fun! I was rather glad that the main attraction wasn't really 'meeting me' so much as "meeting other fans," and for that, I have to thank all of you who came at being so welcoming and inviting to one another!
Elizabeth, who as "Elenatintil" blogs and runs the Fairy Tale Novel forum, posted updates about what we did on her blog. (She's also making the student film of The Shadow of the Bear.) Check out her writings about the week!
So are we planning on doing it again? Well, there will be another fan gathering in St. Paul, Minnsota on Sunday April 26th: email me if you want details. And Andrew and I are talking about doing another gathering at our home sometime this summer: probably just an extended weekend this time. So stay in touch and let me know if you want to be updated about the next one!
