I’m off to Octocon tomorrow folks. I’m really looking forward to it and I know it’s going to be great fun, but I must confess to feeling woefully under prepared for it. There’s just been SO MUCH RUNNING ABOUT recently and my head feels quite stuffed full of fresh air and thistledown. I shall just have to hope I don’t make too big an idiot of myself at the panels.
Well they went a wrote me some lovely lovely e-mails after. I promised I put them on the blog, so here they are: (NOTE: I replied to everyone individually so all the questions have been answered : ) )
This is Chloe M() from Athy College. On behalf of the Book Club I would like to thank you for meeting with us on the 5/10/2012. We enjoyed it immensely and wish you the very best of luck!
You have also inspired me to write my own stories, as well as some of the other Book Club members!
Dear Ms. Kiernan,My name is Katie G() and I am a second year student in Athy College.
I would like to thank you for visiting us in Athy Library recently to discuss your book ” Into the Grey/Taken Away”. I really enjoyed listening to you talk about the background to the book and how you got the ideas for the plot of the book from your personal childhood experiences.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and found it very interesting and a little bit scary. I had never read a book like this before.
I really look forward to reading your new book when it is published next year.
Hello Ms Kiernan,

Life is really lovely sometimes, isn’t it? THANKS KIDS!!!! It makes all the running around worth it when I get such lovely letters afterwards : )
