    I’d like to post on July 17th. When will this title be on NetGalley? Or could you send me a digital download link? I’d also be interested in a author interview.

    I would love to post on July 10.
    Would it be possible to do an interview or character interview?

      Hi Sara,

      It would be very possible to do any interviews you like! It sounds fun. You can email me at and we can talk more. Thank you for your interest.

    I could do a post on July 9th.

    Would you like any mentions of The Road Show, or just strictly The Kindling?

    The Kindling is still not up on NetGalley. Any idea when this will happen?
    Thanks for any info you can get me!

    Thank you!
