  1. Hi Lena! I stopped by your table on Friday night to tell you that Witchlanders was next in my “to-be-read” pile, and that I was looking forward to reading it. I wanted to let you know that I finished reading it on my way home Sunday, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I understand about wanting to move on and write other things, but please don’t take too long in coming back to a sequel. I want to know what happens to Ryder and Falpian!

    1. Thanks Amy! So glad you enjoyed Witchlanders. I will certainly get back to the Witchlanders world someday, though I might not have Ryder and Falpian as main characters.
