Hi Jillian!

 

I love The Great Gatsby too! It's what made me curious about Vixen, actually. I just got the book a few days ago and started reading it over the weekend, so I'm excited about our upcoming discussions. It's always exciting to be able to ask the author questions about the stories they wrote and get more backstory, meaning, etc. :robothappy:

And so beguile thy sorrow."

I am very interested in reading your book as my mom was a "flapper". Even though I am a man I look forward to the excitement of this era reading your book.

 

I enjoyed reading about your background and thanks for sharing.

Hi Jillian,

 

Thank you for allowing us this chance to read your novel.  I've started the book and I must admit I find the characters wonderful.  I've never had any exposure to the 'flappers' and I'm looking forward to discussing this terrific novel with you.

Re: Dear First Look Group

Thanks for stopping by to tell us some info about your book. I love to read historical YA books, there are not that many out there currently. I haven't started the book yet but I hope to soon, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Re: Dear First Look Group

Thanks for sharing your novel!  This is my first book set in the Flapper era since reading the Great Gatsby in high school (quite a long time ago!).  I am halfway through and enjoying it very much!

Re: Dear First Look Group

Your introduction will definitely serve as an inspiration to many women. I'm glad to have read it myself. This is my 1st time reading a book set in the 20's too and I'm really excited to read and discuss it.

Jillian - 

 

I finished the book just two days after picking it up.  Had the issue of not able to put it down once I picked it up.  You certainly have a knack for carrying the reader thru the stages as the characters develop.  Great gift  

 

when is your next 'series' in the novel coming out????

 

Excited to start the dialogue

Reading . . .is LIVING in true color
