    1. I couldn't believe it either, I guess it's good to start writing in high school when you have more time

  2. I agree with Beverley. I love this feature. It's great. I like to support other young people. It gives me inspiration to finish my book (I'm only 2 chapters in though)

    1. Jess told me about Thrones of Glass and I love the concept.

  9. I'm loving this feature!! :) There are definitely some amazingly talented people out there and to be published before turning 25 is impressive!
    Also, I'm one of those who read Throne of Glass (when it was still called Queen of Glass) on FictionPress and it was amazing! I'm dying to have the pretty finished copy in my hands soonish! :)

    1. I only wish it had been cool enough to read it when it was still Queen of Glass. I'm glad to hear it was so good.
