Such lovely comments, so little time

I promised my agent I wouldn’t spend all my time chatting here when I have a huge deadline – at least a huge amount of writing to do before the deadline – but thanks so much to everyone for all these comments and emails.

Not that my agent’s a dragon! She just knows me well, and knows I’ve been stressing about getting everything done in the next few months – so I’m going to try to go back to my usual practice of just answering emails once a week. When people are so friendly, it’s very tempting just to read and answer right away, but when I do that, somehow at the end of the day, the new manuscript’s blank page is still blank…

So just to let you know I’m appreciating it all, even if I don’t seem as speedy at replying as would be nice!



  1. Ciuineas Hi Wendy,

    First I'd like to say congratulations on your wonderful book 'Nim's Island' being made into film. You have many fans of your fantastic work that are very excited about this news and wish you much success.

    I believe you have recently found out there is a worldwide army of fans for the amazing actors... Gerard Butler, Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin.

    The fans of the GB fan sites go all out in their support and are very loyal. We're behind you all the way!

    That being said... please know we do understand that you will be extremely busy in the coming months and have no expectations of any speedy responses. You are very considerate to care and we appreciate that.

    All the best to you.

    Peace and Serenity
