When you feel like it’s not worth it…


Writing is TOUGH. As you can imagine, the early stages of your writing career can feel impossible at times. Somedays you feel like you’re writing to a wall. But every once in awhile something happens that makes it feel absolutely worth it. This letter from a mother was one of those:

Mr. McGill,

…I’m so sorry to bother you and I am not even sure if you will see this, but…

You sucked my son in with a free copy of Episode 1. He gobbled up Episode 2…He loves your series so much that he insisted his school librarian borrow it to read/order for the school. He also designed a book jacket based on Episode 2 for his latest long term Lit/Comp assignment.

He is an 11 year old boy and I adore how your series gives him such a thirst for reading. If you have any recommendations on how I can order a copy of Episode 3 for him, I would be truly greatful.

Thanks so much for your time and attention,
