Octocon HO!

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.

You remember I did some readings recently for this lovely lot:

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 : ) )

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.🙂
Yours sincerely,
Katie G()
