Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I enjoyed doing the e-mails, too, Jennifer. It was the first time that I had done anything like that and it made a change from the other Drumshee books which were focused on the past history of Ireland.

Hope you liked the dog!

Message:Hi Cora, I love your book "Millenium@Drumshee" because at the end I loved that Bruce and Emma kissed. I loved reading the e-mails because it felt like they were actually my emails. :D Lol x'DD

Message:Maybe..... I can't be sure. You apologized anyway, but you were probably thinking of other things. I'm on the 29th page of my book, though. YAY!

Message:Conor: Did I see you?

Niamh: Sorry, I'm so stupid. I got mixed up. es, of course, I remember you.
I was just looking at the lovely picture that your school gave me when your email came and thinking what a lovely day that was.

A very, very long way for someone of my age, I'm afraid.

Message:That would be fantastic, Cora. Not many of my friends share my love for reading and writing. I'm sorry to be bothering you so much by the way. I also met you in Dunnes Stores last year while you were buying plants and I crashed into you. I just thought of that today actually! :)

Message:Conor: I get your point and it's silly of me to try to evaluate until the book is finished - remember that the Skullduggery books are about 40,000 words, though and it's all a matter of proportion.

Perhaps we might meet one day - I'm not too keen on school visits at the moment because I am very busy, but my ten-year-old grandson will be coming in the Christmas holidays and he read your first bit and thought it was fantastic. I bet he would like to meet you and perhaps we could arrange something.

Message:See, I like to put in some speech and stuff like that because this is actually my novel. When I have it finished I'll be sending it away for evaluation. But I read the Skullduggery Pleasant series and I like the way that the conversations go, as they make the story more interesting. Plus, this book has an intricate backstory so I have to explain some stuff. Also, if you would be interested, I would love it if you would come Kilshanny N.S. Thanks!

Where is your school?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Conor: That's the 64 dollar question - and impossible to answer. I've given up answering questions like that. The easy answer is 'yes'; the most like is 'I don't know' - but the answer is not 'no', if that is any help.
I will advise though, that it is worth making it very fast moving and cutting out anything that slows the pace.
I thought the beginning was excellent, but then it slowed down. Try to keep the action going and only give information in one or two sentences in between. ~whenever you find yourself explaining or giving a lecture, then stop.

Message:Do you think I'm good enough to get published though?

Message:Conor:

Times are very hard in the publishing world.

But, nowadays, a more exciting prospect has opened up where you can self-publish to e-book - either through Amazon for a Kindle, or as an app for an ipad. I know very little about either - except that some people have started like this and ended up selling a million copies - usually started up by selling the books free or for something very small and then increasing the price as they became more popular.
I know even less about 'apps'.

But if you have access to a computer you can find out about these things - I think it might be an ideal way for teenagers to start in the world of books - after all they must know, better than adults, what appeals to their age group.

Message:Taiane: That's horrible - to lose a piece of work on the computer - very discouraging. The best thing is to start re-writing as fast as possible while it is in your head. That works better than you would think.

Yes, you will be able to get 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend' on Amazon - also 'Debutantes'.

I don't think that you would like 'The London Murder Mysteries' as much as 'Debutantes'.

Message:Hey, I sent you a couple of more parts of my story. Also, of what you've read so far, do you think I could get published when I finish this story, in a year or so? also, what are the steps one takes to get published and what does it cost? Thanks, Cora!

Message:Hey, Cora!
I miss you!
Meu computador parou de funcionar e eu perdi uma parte que eu tinha escrito e agora eu não sei tudo o que tinha escrito... :(
Eu tive várias ideias para escrever outros livros.
Vou perguntar de novo à editora se vão publicar "Jane Austen stole my boyfriend" e, é claro, "Debutantes". Será que "The London Murder Mysteries" vão ser publicados também?? Queria muito lê-los! Mas, se nenhum deles forem publicados aqui, vou comprá-los em inglês mesmo. Dá pra comprar pela Amazon?
Kisses,
Taiane.

Message:How do you do? Writing a lot? I'm trying to write but it's being difficult to me...
But I have some ideas to write... Uma é sobre uma menina que recebe uma carta de uma desconhecida, mas ela vai descobrir que não é uma desconhecida :) (Mas não vou contar mais sobre, se não estraga a surpresa!).
E a outra é escrever a história da Jane Austen, só que nos dias de hoje. O que acha? Teria que pesquisar muito, mas acho que valeria a pena. Well, my vacation is coming and I'll try to message you more!

Message:But hard work, too. Starting a book is easier than finishing it - well, no, i think the hardest bit is when you are three-quarters of the way through. The last quarter, if you have planned your book, is like coasting downhill on bicycle.

Message:I wanted to be an author when I was your age, Niamh.
And then I forgot all about it and just revived my ambition after retiring from being a headteacher in a school in England.
It was my son-in-law who set up my website - he's a professional - but I wouldn't have a clue as to how it is done.
Perhaps some teacher could help you.

Message:That's a wonderful story, Conor.

re copyright, recently someone asked to have a story taken off the Story Club - one that was written about ten years ago. With a huge amount of work I managed to track it down (and I wouldn't want to have to do that again), but even when I had deleted it from the Story Club it still appeared under that person's name in Google - that's if he put in his name and the name of the story. There is nothing that I can do about Google.
