An Idea from Faith . . .

Faith posted a fun idea in a comment so I thought I would share it, as well as a picture I found of "Taffy" and the author. I'm sorry I haven't been able to post a story. Want to know why? Because I am putting together my proposal for the 4 new Andi books and writing up some chapters for it! You guys have got me pumped about turning something in soon. Meanwhile, here is Faith's comment in a post for you all:




From FAITH: I can hardly wait for the next post. I just love all the things you write about. In the meantime, I'm going to start reading the Circle C's over again. If anyone who owns the books would like to read them with me, I think that would be fun! We can post how much we're enjoying it! Just a thought. I'm going to start reading the first book today. They are the BEST!!!

  2. WOW! Thanks a lot Andi/Mrs. M. I'm glad you liked my idea. Made me feel good. Yeah, so me and my two sisters started reading the first book this afternoon. We would each read a few chapters and then pass the book to the next person. (Whoever was not reading was getting their hair curled! lol) My little brother even came in and was listening to us read. He seemed like he was really enjoying the story as much as we were. We have almost finished the first book!! Crazy! We're loving it. We got all the way up to the part when Andi is making plains to get this "horse" away from her new mistress. Oh that young lady makes my temper rise. 100 strokes indeed! haha. Not only is this story fun, but it is bring me and my brother and sister closer together. :-)

    P.S. sorry this post is so long. I got excited! lol :D

    1. That sounds like so much fun. I'm also hoping sometime in the future to do audio books--my publisher gave me my rights back to that, so I am planning on doing the Circle C Beginnings first then if it works well, to record the CCA on CD / MP3 files. :-)

  4. I MY GOODNESS! CAN I HELP??? my sister and I were just talking about how cool it would be to make a movie of the Andi books. But audio books would be just as fun, if not more!! That sounds awesome!!!!

    Also, for those who want to read the Andi books with us, we will be reading five chapters each day. that way we all stay on track,;) Have fun reading.

  12. Totally changes? I yeah I guess so...What a story that would make. We only have TWO more chapters left and then we will have finished book one!!!!!! WoW! that was fast. I feel so bad for Andi having to be shut up in that shack! I almost get teared up when she sighs that paper....Oh the Felicity! tisk tisk.

  13. You people are hysterical! And it seems to me that this sounds like fodder for a short-story contest! Why should I have all the fun thinking up scenarios with Mitch and Felicity (gasp!) when you creative gals could do a much better job, I think.

    I will try to post something of substance next week, now that the conventions are over for a month. Thanks for your patience!

  17. Poor Chad is right! We just finished book one and I was so glad Felicity got what for! I just love Chad. What a wonderful book Mrs. M. Me and my sisters loved it. Thank you. We'll start book one tomorrow:) Oh yeah, and I'm interested in this writing contest...

    1. Hey Faith, I'll start the second book tomorrow too! I don't have the other books, just the second one. :) And the other books are all at the library which I won't have a chance to go to this week as I've got lots of relatives coming over. But I'll read book two starting tomorrow! :D You're reading five chapters a day, right?
      Anyways I'll read five chapters then hopefully if I have time I'll be able to discuss it with ya! :D This was such a great idea...

    1. Glad you asked. I almost have the proposal written to send to my editor. That means telling them what I want to write and why and summaries of the first two books.

  21. I love all of the books, and am really looking forward to the new series.
    And I'm planning to go over them once more, because they are really fun.
    The books are so well though out, and very fun to read at midnight.

  22. Andi/Mrs, Marlow,

    At the homeschool conference i bought the gold town books... Anyways, on top there was like a little thing of gold flakes...

    i was wondering if the gold is REAL? Or is it like fake gold flakes?

  23. Faith, as I mentioned before, I lent out my first three books, how do you want me to read???

    ReplyDelete
  24. Okay, so Faith, I didn't have time to read at all Monday or Tuesday in Dangerous Decision, but after taking care of the horses this morning I caught up and read fifteen chapters. So five chapters for Monday, five for Tuesday and five for today. I just left off with Andi getting shot by that no good outlaw named Jed. I can't believe that Jed lied so much to Justin! Shesh! And then taking a shot at Andi!(tsk tsk!)I can't wait tell they catch him.
    So what about you? Where are you at in the book? :)

    1. I ride. But not often enough, sadly. And there is a lady in our church who has told me I can come over and ride whenever I want. They go on trail rides all over our "mountain." *big sigh*
      I just never have time to go over there and get on the horse. I am too busy . . . writing stories? LOL
      And traveling around the countryside.
      Do you ride?

      Delete
  26. No, but I really, really wish I did! I've only taken a couple of lessons but I need more because my whole life is going to be horses! I really love them but get really frustrated when I can't be around them. :(

Let Andi know what you think!
