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 : )
