Model Jackson is back for some more blog fun today! If you missed last week's UN-COVERED episode you can catch up here.
So, a couple week's ago I finally got up the nerve to ask Mark if he had read TEMPEST...I totally felt like a dweeb asking because it's, like, putting someone on the spot in a major way. Seriously, just because he's on the cover of the book doesn't mean he actually has an interest in reading my book. Am I that self-involved that I assume everyone has read my book?
Which is why it took several little hints and then finally Mark said something about the beginning of Tempest in an email...ok, so maybe I didn't actually get up the nerve to ask him. Anyway, he was about 50 pages into the book and said he really liked it so far and could relate to Jackson in quite a few ways.
My ears perked up (I was totally thinking of you guys) and I was like, "Really...how so?" and then I told him to wait until he finished the book and then tell me his answer.
So, he finished reading Tempest last Saturday and I got a nice email that made me very happy and a fun list for you guys. First, here's what Mark said about Tempest:
"Just finished the book. I really loved the ending it seriously sets up so much drama for the next two books! I can't believe all that happened! I read it all in one sitting, I couldn't put it down it was so good! Congratulations on a great read."
Here's the lists Mark made based on my questions:
