If you are a blogger (required), or have a website:
i do wish they would stop blinking at me that i have new mail. i am trying to read your book. i like it. it reads like poetry. i may have to stop for a while ...in the middle of another book. but i just had to tell you. i only got into your book because of another email. i am so like a two year old! you know, the one hold something in each hand who finds something with sparkles and has to let go of something in one hand so he can pick it up? he just continues that way. hence, my blog name of hodgepodge.
rats...i cant find my place...where some reviewed your book and found a misspelled word....i found it so you can fix it... chapter 2 dive...should be "somewhere", not "somewhen"...paragraph starts with i walk between the worlds. not looking for it, just dislexic so when things don't make sense, i have to reread them.

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."
Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.
I know I'm the same way. My wife thinks I need help. Maybe I do. I think in hindsight I should have a reading room added on to the house where I can pile or leave books anyway I want. The door would be locked when I wasn't there so the "mess" wouldn't bother anyone. I digress. Must have too much time on my hands. Does your significant other read a lot??
