Hey, there, so glad you liked it! Actually, I leave the ending ambiguous on purpose because I think that what YOU think happens next is just as valid as what I think.
So…nu? What do you think? 🙂
My name is Kim Barley, and I am the Community Relations Business Manager for Barnes & Noble Jones Valley.
We have several customers asking for your book. It would be awesome if you could stop by, and do an Author Signing with discussion, at our store during our Teen Book Festival, June 10-12. If you are interested, please contact me .
I have read The Sin-Eaters Confessions and I have to say it is probably my favorite book. I am rereading it again because I was helping in my schools library and found the book again, skimmed the pages, and next thing I knew I was at the check out desk. I was wonder if when you wrote the book, you knew who murdered Jimmy, because even though it is never said sometimes authors know the answer or know just as much as the main character. I’m guessing even if you do know, you wouldn’t right out say it, but if you know is there any parts in the book that point to who did it but its so easy to miss because Ben is so uncertain?
LOL!! First off, thanks so much for writing in! I’m glad you enjoy that book; I have a certain fondness for it, too.
Do I have ideas? Oh, sure. Are there parts that hint at it all? Well…that depends. (I know: maddening.) Remember: Ben’s the narrator and he’s kind of an unrealizable guy. We don’t even know if he’ll send this whole thing off to anyone (or to whom if he does). So, at the risk of sounding all artsy-fartsy, I wanted you to feel just as uncertain as Ben. This means I’m vague and it’s open to interpretation.
It’s one of those author-tortures-reader things 😉
I could not figure out how to leave a blog post. I don’t really have a story where Serendipity worked for me but I am appreciative of the opportunity to play in the hunt. Thank you for being part of the hunt.
Hi, there, you don’t have to leave a blog post. This comment is just fine, and you’re welcome! 🙂
Hi, my name is Hailey. I was wondering if you could tell me a little more about yourself. I’m doing a book report on Draw the Dark and need an author’s biography. I need five hundred words and am almost their. I’ve done some research looked at your website and just keep finding the same things about your professions. I loved the book,by the way it was very suspenseful. I can’t wait to read more of your books.
Hey, there, Hailey, happy to help. Here’s what I’d suggest: you can either Google “Bick interview Ashes” and find scads of material from all the interviews I’ve given, or come up with a list of questions. Some I’ll probably be able to answer and others I won’t. I don’t give out personal information like where I was born or how many kids I have or how long I’ve been married, but I can tell you where I went to school and all that. But if you want detailed answers about how I started writing and stuff, then I’ve answered those questions many times before for various interviewers.
I’m so glad you liked that book! Thanks for getting in touch 🙂
