We met at RavenCon 13.5. We were on a Rewriting panel together and you Bud and I had lunch together and chatted about writing. I run the Agile Writers Conference every year and I’d like to invite you to speak at our conference on January 26th. I hope you’ll write back and are interested in participating.
Many years ago I read Wilderness. When I finished it, I put it away in my bookshelf. Several years later as I was organizing my shelf, I saw it and decided to read it again (something I rarely do). Again, I was captured by the atmosphere, story, characters! So, I read it again. It was even better! Well, guess what! I found it and am reading it again. Thank you Mr Danvers for so many hours of pleasurable reading. Here I go, into the Wilderness again.
I almost missed this! I’m afraid I’ve been neglecting my website. It brings me joy to know a book I wrote almost 30 years ago still brings someone pleasure. You’ve made my day.
I’m about to begin End of Days after finishing Circuit of Heaven and I can’t express how much I loved the first novel and your blessed writing. I can’t wait to devour all of your short stories and novels! As a hobbyist writer with so much passion for the craft, it’s authors like you that are great titans providing so much inspiration to your readers and fans! Thank you for sharing your stories with the world!
Thank you so much! I’m sorry it took me so long to see this. I’ve been neglecting my site.
I looked for an address to send a postcard to tell you that The Watch was a wild and incredible and being from Virginia, it is even more exciting. I’d love to share more or mail some post if you have the time to email me back! Thanks!!
I’m sorry I missed this. I’ve been neglecting my website. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I would be glad to hear from you.
Just finished Wilderness and wanted to express my appreciation for the book. Fun plot and a thoroughly enjoyable read during our extended stay at home period here in New York.
Sorry it’s taken so long for me to see this! Thank you so much. It’s quite delightful that someone can still enjoy a novel I wrote thirty+ years ago!
