Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for all your amazing support for both Legend and Prodigy. I heard the news yesterday and became an absolute mess of emotions:

Prodigy debuts at #2 on the New York Times bestsellers list, and Legend comes in at #10 on the same list!

I can't believe it. I really can't. I don't think my high school writing-at-midnight self could ever have imagined this sort of thing coming true. It couldn't have happened without a team of brilliant people and the support of dedicated readers. Thank you all so much. :heart:

Absolutely the best dystopian books series I've ever read ;P My friend bought the book but he took too long to read it and I couldn't wait till Monday for him to finish reading it so last Saturday night I bought the book online and read it all in one night. It was THAT good! I can't wait for the 3rd novel! ><

I just bought and read Legend and I'm soon to read Prodigy. I must say, its SO awesome XD. I personally like it better then 'The Hunger Games'. Outlaws and such is really a way to catch me. ;D I simply love it. Wish I could write like that, but right now I just scribble XD

I'm not much of a book reader, but I've seen your art, and seeing what people are capable of when they just do what they love is pretty amazing to me. Congratulations on your success! This is only the first step in the set of stairs.

Congrats! I am a huge fan of yours and I think that the books totally deserve their spot on the NYT list. This is an amazing series, and the fact that you got the idea of it from Les Mis makes it ten times better. I literally sobbed reading the last couple of chapters in Prodigy. Can't wait for the next one to come out!

Thank you for writing not only one but two beautiful books! (Even if the ending of the second one is something I pretend dissent exist because my fragile heart can't take it....)

*SCREAM* I forgot to put Prodigy on any sort of birthday list and I missed the launch date and I really REALLY want to go buy it but sdfgkl I'm already behind on classwork and if I get it I just know it will rule my life for a week and---

So yeah, I can't get it until I'm all caught up. Unfortunately. I'm so! Excited though!

I read Legend, loved it, did a project in English on it, got an A, and then Prodigy came out.
Honestly, I was thinking about complaining when my local Barnes and Noble didn't have it (or I just couldn't find it), but that's what Amazon's for!(: :tighthug:
