The latest

01/26/2009 at 1:23 pm (My Name Is Memory)

There has been some confusion in switching over from my old website to my new one. I think it’s all figured out, finally. Thanks for your patience. We’re still trying to bring the comments section over from the old site. They should get here soon.

I set up a new mailbox ( or just click on “write to Ann”), and the thing is, it actually works! I am getting emails from readers and writing back. It didn’t work on my old site, so I’m very excited that it works on this one. Thanks to those of you who have written to me.
In other news, I was sick the week before last and I had to cancel my bookstore visits in Connecticut, Atlanta and Miami. If you were planning to come to one of those, I am sorry. I’ve never been sick enough to cancel an appearance before, and I felt terrible for it (in addition to feeling generally terrible because of being sick). I’m feeling much better now and thankful for modern medicine and antibiotics. I’m rescheduling those visits, and I will post them on this site as soon as they are definite.
And last of all, I found out that 3 Willows is going to be #1 on the New York TImes bestseller list of Children’s hardcovers next week. I was pretty surprised and excited about that. The only problem is that I made a deal with my kids that if 3 Willows made it to the top spot on the list, I would take them somewhere warm this winter. I was sort of kidding around when I made the deal. I didn’t think it would happen and I promptly forgot about it. But my kids have been very eager to remind me. So I guess we’re going somewhere warm this winter. So much for the deal I made with myself that I was going to save money.

    Hi Ann! I really loved that 3 willows finally came out and that you are updating your site agiain. I miss reading the new posts on your blog. I haven't read 3 willows yet, but i am eager to. The only problem is that once i read it, i won't have any more books written by you to read! You are such a talented writer. Keep on writing and I will keep reading!

    Hi Ann! I am so happy that 3 Willows finally came out. I have not read it yet but I am eager to. The only problem is that once I read it I will have no more new books that you wrote to read. I love your books so much and I think you are such a talented author. Keep on writing and I will keep reading!

    I loved 3 Willows!! Write fast!! Put the next one out!! I HAVE to see what happens between Jo and Zach!!! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

  13. Lynsey Jenkins said,

    What inspired you to write the Sisterhood series? The depth and unfailing love within frienship itself? They're wonderful, I must confess. And you did also inspire me to write three novels. I'm in the process of editting two of them, which is nothing but tedium. Inevitable tedium, however, because it cannot be avoided. I hope you continue to write.

    I love your new book, Ann!!! I am reading "3 Willows" right now, I love it. I love how Ama is trying something new and being outdoors. Polly reminds me about myself sometimes. Polly is just like me. And Jo is so cute and very talkative in my view. I hope you keep on writing about growing up. I love your books. You are such a great author. You're my favortive, Ann Brashares!!!!!!!!!!

    I really loved 3 Willows and I would love it if there is a second one. However, I do feel that at the same time, it'd be okay if there isn't because there are some books that really leave you hanging but this one doesn't. I really like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series and I feel like the movies were pretty bad compared to them. Seriously, the didn't do the book any justice.

    Hello Ann… I just finished 3 Willows and I LOVED it… loved the reference to the girls from the Pants series (which I read all four in four days!!). I am also anxious to know if there is a second book coming in the future?
