Hi, guys, quickie note--if anyone's in Houston, TX this April 26th, I will be there, too, come to TeenBookCon to see meeeeeeee!  The fabulous creators Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki, who are amazing and the creators of "Skim", they will be there also and we're totally doing a panel together and I will likely embarrass myself geeking out over them.  There will also many other amazing authors presenting!  The event is free to attend and you can find the information here: TeenBookCon!

Доброго времени суток! Наконец-то я Вас нашла!
Хочу поблагодарить за чудесные работы - ДРАМАкон и Ночную Школу!
Мы очень Вас любим в далёкой Сибири и ждём продолжения Ночной Школы, а также новых чудесных работ!!!
P.S. Было очень неожиданно и приятно узнать из одного Вашего интервью, что свой творческий путь Вы начали с ElfQuest! Как здорово, что про этот комикс ещё помнят)))

I didn't know you had a DA account! I loved all your series...you're actually the reason I got into drawing.  And I loved your parts in the Christopher Hart manga books...especially the fantasy parts. Just wanted to say thank you, and I can't wait for more series by you!

Good day! I would like to Express my gratitude for all your work, for such masterpieces as "Dramacon" and "Night school"(of course it is a pity that in Russia, where I live, released only 2 volumes). Your style is unique, I ( and others) like it very much. I wish success to You! Create more!

You got hugged :iconletmehugyouplz: :iconsupertighthugplz: 
Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)

RULES:
1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You -MUST- hug 6 other people, at least!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their page!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get started hugging right away!
