Fertig-- that's German for finished!


So it already past midnight so its a new day, but on Thursday at 4:03 pm, I finished Becoming Isaac. Finished is really a generous word in this case. I know I still have lots to edit and review and rewrite, but I made my goal to have this portion done by the weekend. For the last three weeks, I have been writing nearly non-stop--12-14 hours a day with only Sundays off. It has been weeks since I have been to bed before midnight. I am tired, but I made it. Viva Niederbipp. YOu're going to love it!

Fantastic!!! I'm selfishly thrilled, because I can't wait to read it.

Soooo exciting!

I can't wait to read it. I'm starting to miss my Niederbipp friends. I may have to re-re-read the first two. Hmmm. I am going to have to pace myself so I finish the second one right as you're releasing the third!

Looking forward to September.

Thank you for letting get to know Issac and his friends. We had to buy additional copies of the first two books because everyone wanted to read them at the same time. I can't wait to read this new one. I have reread the first two several times and each time is rewarding.

Hooray! Can't wait to devour the new book and then read them all over again! :)

Hey Ben!! You don't know me from Adam but I have totally and completely fallen in love you with! Ha Ha. I am almost done with Remembering Isaac and absolutely love it. I have enjoyed every part of the book. I haven't finished it yet, but I don't think I will be disappointed. I tell everyone I meet how much I like the book and to go and buy it! I will be anxious to buy the next one. I admire you. I wanted to be a writer but I became a nurse instead. Go figure. Keep writing and I will keep advertising!

Just finished both your books in a week of camping. Absolutely fabulous. The quotes are so quirky and wonderful that i was laughing and crying at the same time. Great job and I can't wait till the 3rd book is out!!!
