Trick or Treat

The goodies have arrived!
Petit Morts now for sale at JCP Books and Amazon for Kindle.

(And somehow my sale email managed to fire two hours early! Hopefully not too many people clicked for an hour going, "Where...is...it?" I assume it was operator error; I probably calculated the time difference between my mail client and myself incorrectly.)

Congrats for a great batch of stories!

Thank you!

Yay! On time! I just went and bought the batch.

Hey, are you experiencing high volume? I'm stuck on download, the dialogue box just thinking, thinking, thinking...

Could be my machine/connection, though I've never had trouble before with either JCP books or anyone.

If you're crazy busy right now, ignore this, and I'll try again later. Ta! And congrats again. :)

Ack...I can't really access that part of the cart. It doesn't come from my server. I think I'd re-try the download. I can't imagine my handful of sales would constitute "high volume"!

I'm really happy you were able to buy before your plane trip!

I'll figure it out. Thnx. :)

rebooting did it, Thanks!

I'M RELIEVED! You know, I think you brought it on yourself when you speculated that you might be a 1am pain in the ass. Your computer HEARD you! :D

bought and downloaded! I'm excited to start reading this set, since I loved the last ones so well. :)

Woo hoo!!! I just loved the reviews you posted on Amazon for the first batch :D

Goddamnit, I wasn't expecting the final story to be so sad. I'm not really sure what I think, lol.

Re: spoiler warning
If it made you feel something deeply, I consider it a success.

Hey, the way I see it, he got what he wished for. Another ending would have ruined this story and turned it into another wishy-washy romance novel.

Re: spoiler warning
Thanks--I think another ending would have destroyed Eddie's character arc as well.

Thank you so much for these - a perfect Halloween treat! I loved every story, including the last one. I'm glad you took the chance (har har) because I think it really worked.

Thank you--it never occurred to me to put a contrived happy ending on it. It would have been the antithesis of my vision for the story.

Had to circle back to tell you how awed I am by 'Wishink Well'... It's still settling in, but wow. What a story.
Oct. 31st, 2010 04:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. I ran it past two early readers with terminally ill family members to see if it maybe went too far, but they said no, it was powerful.

I never comment because I have social phobia, but I had to comment because Wishink Well made me cry. I read it an hour ago and I still feel like bursting into tears at any moment. The only time a story made me cry was when I read the animal abuse in White Fang when I was 13. Despite how crappy I feel after reading Wishink Well, I still have to say it was incredibly beautiful. Definitely one of my favorites. Everything about it was perfect. I agree that Eddie couldn't have had a happy ending while remaining true to the characters and the story, and really, what a great way to die, but so tragic. And I wonder about how Chance must feel after all of that. I really like that it was Chance who was with Eddie, or maybe that it was Eddie who was with Chance. Eddie's constant fever, while Chance is always cold, as if it was really meant to be these two together. But more than that. And they had great chemistry. I also liked that because Eddie was so close to death, he seemed to sense and accept more of Chance's unearthliness than he might have if he'd been healthy. Like Chance could have been an angel, or death god, or genie, or anything, and at that point Eddie was ready to believe or to suspend disbelief without fighting too hard against the seemingly impossible.

Thank you for braving your social phobia to let me know your thoughts--I've promised myself I won't read any reader commentary about the story unless it's directed specifically at me, so I'm very eager for the feedback.

I really love your idea about Eddie being more open to possibilities because he's in the midst of facing his own mortality. That's so true. Although the story is a weeper (and it was for me, too) I think it's a story about the evolution of his character, of his growth from a petty person to an expansive person. It might feel like tragedy on the surface but I think it's really a triumph. When I look back at it I feel triumphant for Eddie.
