I’m halfway through today’s to-do list. Here are some recent reader questions.
Stacy writes: this is a request from my daughter who loves your wild at heart series! She would like to know if some of the books could be reprinted. We are having a really hard time locating number 12 End of the Race. We did find it but they wanted 50.00 $ for it and that was the cheap one As much as we love your books thats a little more than we can afford. thank you for all the great books that you wright I know your new book Prom will be a great success.
I am really sorry that people are having a hard time finding copies of the Wild at Heart books. As of this minute, Pleasant Company Publications (aka American Girl) has taken the series out of print. I am not happy about this, but it is out of my hands. I hope we can get them to change their minds.
Emma writes: I am a young reader, hoping to contact Ms. Anderson. I live in Philadelphia, PA, and was hoping that someone could tell me her address, or phone number. I am doing a report on her, and I was hoping to get a response from her sometime.
Sorry, Emma. I do keep a couple of things private and one of those is my phone number. You can find all kinds of information about me and my books on the Writerlady website’s About Me page. Good luck.
Mrs. Doolin writes: I’m not sure if this is what you are interested in -but I always use Fever 1793 as a literature circle selection and this year one group of eighth grade girls really got into it. As a class assignment, they were required to choose a favorite scene for a Reader’s Theatre project, but in addition to the Readers Theatre assignment these girls wanted to do more. They volunteered to write and perform a song-version of the scene! I agreed to give them extra credit after they presented the idea to me, but I suggested that they dress in period clothes and allow me to video the performance. They loved that even more! Needless to say it was an entertaining piece! If you are interested in further details let me know. I’d be happy to share and they would love it! They adore Laurie’s books! Speak and Fever 1793 “ROCK!” to put it in their language.
Do you have any still photos we could post to the site? If so, email them to email@example.com, with a note giving the required permissions, and we’ll put them up. Thanks for writing.
Note to Renee – I don’t want to post your email here because of some of the personal details. But know that it really touched me. Thank you so much for sending it to me. I’m glad the book helped.
