Indeed!

I see though a small point here. You used the word 'was' instead, I'm sure, where you meant to write 'am'. Such as "when I am writing some FF." yes? Small difference, but also a large difference. Surely you grasp, then, the implied gentle nudge? yes? Excellent! (Whimpering, whining and pleading will follow should you need stronger encouragement.)

Sure, the book wouldn't have made much difference on the size and weight of that package!

Yes. We opted for a large box. And you pack a box very well! Payment back to you using paypal, if I recall correctly, was not hard. And I think I sent a small amount of the Eli candies off to several of the members here. I should ask the kids if they'd like a new sampling - I think they would be upon me in no time.

Yeah, but I need a plot. Which I'm having difficulty finding.

Hey guys, do you know what is this ?

Here: http://www.adlibris.com/se/bok/vampyren ... 9170530821

Vampyren I Blackeberg, it seems very interesting.

Anyone read it ?
I don't know a single word in swedish, but it looks like an analysis of LTROI or writing process by JAL ?


Edit: I just googled it better+translate and is just a shortened "easy to read" version of the novel, aparently.
