I am a HUGE fan (I bet you couldn't have guessed that); he's brilliant.

And oddly, this is the second blog I've mentioned Sfar on today...

Hello Ms. Martin,

I have a blog aimed at new writers ( ), the purpose of which is to guide them to other blogs in the publishing industry. Each week, I'll be contacting the brains behind industry blogs, including publishers, agents and authors in the hopes of getting a few tidbits to share.

I'll be featuring your Eclectic Closet blog within the next 2 weeks, and I'd love to include a few personal words from you in that post.

My questions are simple and few, if you could contact me at my e-mail denboo2000 at yahoo dot com , I'll send them along.

Thanks so much.

Hi there,

My friend was googling my name for fun (no, we really do have lives, it's just that my debut novel came out last week) and I only now noticed you'd mentioned me on your list of 2007 releases - thanks!

I also read your review of Homeland, and I wonder why I haven't heard of that book before - it sounds right up my alley. Thanks for that too!

If you would like a copy of Fashionably Late for your review section, I'll be happy to have one sent to you.

Great blog, and I'm always on the lookout for good writing blogs - I'll give you a shoutout on mine.
