*Everyone* read!

Hey guys!

I'm so glad you're all passionate about Canterwood and that you love the characters and their horses as much as I do. :) It's amazing to have support like that. In the previous thread, though, the criticizing each other HAS to stop or I'll have to moderate all comments. I really don't want to do that and it would take up a ton of my writing time. So, can we all share our opinions but be cool?

To the RR prize winners: I've been sick and on a crazy deadline, so your prizes will go out on Monday. Sorry about the delay!

Also, Paige and Lauren are *not* the Mystery Girl. :D

What's everyone doing this weekend?

Kathryn said...

I'm writing as usual. I picked up a copy of the Writer's Market 2010! Thank you so much for the recommendation. :)
By the way, thank you SO much for subscribing to my YouTube channel. It means a lot. =)

xoxo Kathryn

Michelle said...

Yeah, the criticizing had gotten a little bit out of control earlier. by the way, Happy B-day Anonymous!!

Holly said...

Thanks for narrowing down the possibilities of the mystery girl! And also, when I told some Anonymous that it might not be fun to judge a book by its cover, I only meant that as helpful advice and I hope it didn't sound like I was being mean! And happy birthday, Anonymous!

Jessica Burkhart said...

In the previous thread, someone asked if all of the girls could be on the final cover. #12 has already been shot, so you'll have to wait and see. :)

Crave for Canterwood Crest said...

Hey!
Sorry abt saying You should not judge a book by its cover! plz dont put comment moderation on!

Adina said...

I agree with you Jess. I haven't read the RR spoliers, but I agree with you. My weekend is doing ok. Can't wait to read RR :D

Katie said...

I agree, Jess. Some people just don't know when to stop. This weekend I'm going into my writing zone and I'm planning to lock myself into my room until I get at least 5K done!

Have a great weeked!

Jessica Burkhart said...

No worries, girlies! I totally wasn't calling ANYONE out and saying you can't judge a book by its cover it *so* true. And I agree. There were other comments made that got a little personal that's all.

Thoroughbredstar said...

Today is my cousin's forth birthday then on Monday my dad is taking me and my sis to horseback riding lessons. Hope everyone has a great long weekend. Is the mystery girl Devyn?? Could you please tell us her name?

Holly said...

Who is Devyn? And have fun riding! I just went riding myself it was great

Anonymous said...

Hope you are feeling better. Still looking for RR....B&N Daytona Beach is so slow to get it in.
Have a great week of Canterwooding!!

Holly said...

I have a mildly random question for Jess. You know how your blog has that "About Me" section? And how there is a picture of you with a horse in that section? Well, I was wondering if you could tell us some more about that horse-he or she is really pretty!

Anonymous said...

My weekend is pretty good. I finished RR last night it was fabulous...but I am so ready for Home Sweet Drama I can't believe we are already on book eight(I guess by we I mean Jess but I mean we are reading it so I guess we is okay). I know I sound like a depressed mom but it is going by to fast I can't take it. Well...the books go by fast the wait not so much. But anyways I had a soccer tournament this weekend and a horse show but I had to give up the horse show cause mom says soccer is a team sport and that they were depending on me to be there.Thats really it though.

OMG!! My 14th B-Day is TOM!!! But my Dad has to leave really early for a business trip tom too, so that really sucks! :( Anyway, I haven't gotten RR yet, but I'm hoping to get it tonight, becuase we're all opening up my presents tonight b/c of my Dad's flight tom. Then, on my REAL birthday my Grandparents are going to take me to the Almamo Drafthouse to see the Blind Side! I heard it was AWESOME!! Also my little bro had a gymnastics meet this morning, but he had on "off" day so I'm trying to cheer him up! I get to ride today too,YYYYAAAYYY!!!

Michelle said...

Happy B-day Anon!!!

Michelle said...

hey Jess,
I need some advice. Yesterday I had a make-up lesson 4 horseback riding, but I had to ride a different horse. I was cool with that, but during the lesson, I fell off twice. I don't blame the horse I was riding, and falling off was a blast, but I don't know what I was doing wrong. The other people I was riding with said she always spooks at flower boxes so I guess that's why she didn't jump the cross- rail. I'm still not convinced that that was the issue. Do u know what might be some other possibilities?? THNX!!

Annie C. said...

That's too bad... I understand though!

Lola said...

Thoroughbredthunder said...

Emma Michaels said...

I don't know if anyone cares or has done this yet but if you want you can read the back of HSD at KIDS.SimonandSchuster.com(on the back of RR) it is pretty interesting although it doesn't tell you a lot...I just hope Heather and Sasha don't fight over being "Queen Bee".....

Anonymous said...

oh well anonymous, its just the descripiton. thats whats gonna go on the back of the book. so, no pic or anything. or first chapter. *sigh*

horsegal14 said...

i noticed a few comments on here are about writing and wanted to share this awesome site: fictionpress(dot)com. its so cool cuz u can upload ur stories so other people can read them
jess- i hope this isnt illegal or anything sharing this site, is it?

Anonymous said...

They don't show the back but what is written on the back is like sort of under the pic of the book....as soon as you get there you have to search Home Sweet Drama.

Hannah said...

sorry!!!
I. Am. So. Mad. At. My. Impatientness.
I ordered LWL and RR online. I got LWL a while ago, but I went to my B&N and saw RR!!! I texted my mom and asked if my book had come yet, and it hadn't! Ugh. So I'm gonna have to wait until the 26th to read RR. :O!!!!
My weekend was good. :) I went to my friend's house from Friday till this morning, then went to my riding lesson where I rode a horse I've never ridden before. He's a big boy! He's 17 hands! I felt huge! Lol. He takes a little getting used to, but it was fun. :)

Holly said...

Thoroughbredstar-if Devyn is just some random girl from a math class then i don't think she would be the mystery girl! good thinking but..I don't think Devyn is the MG(mystery girl)

Anonymous said...

Jeez Anonymous do you like to shop or what?! I barley get that much stuff at like Christmas....sigh..oh well.

Anonymous said...

My weekend was going pretty well...I had a five day weekend so that is always good.I also had a soccer tournament which is a fun thing but it would have been better out of town. I got to hang out with the team though and they are some entertaining people to be around. The bad things of this weekend consist of:
1. My BFF broke her arm before a soccer game
2. My other best friend got a concussion during a game and her mom freaked and wouldn't let her finish the tournament
3. And we tied all our games even though we shot about a millon times our ratio of shoot to score was probably around 200:1
.........still not a bad weekend though

Oreocookie said...

Most of the Barnes & Nobles have RR in!!! :) It's so super good. Just wish Sasha would tell Paige what really happened. My weekend has been so awesome, swim meet then nothing on MLK day!! :) :D

Bri Meets Books said...

Hey Jess, I'm annoyed. My work put your series Buy 2 Get 1 Free and I have all of them except the last!

Also, I've been previously hesistant to apply to anywhere in NYC and Nova Ren Suma convinced me that it's the most awesome place on Earth and then I remember how you were when you were when you moved to NYC, and I know I can do it!

So my answer is..this weekend..applying to jobs!

sassysilver said...

Hey Jess...have you already chosen the title for the 12th CC book yet? Because if you haven't I think it would be supercool if you posted a thread where we would all give you ideas for a title. Then you could choose a winning title and give the winner some sort of prize, like an early copy of Home Sweet Drama? Even if you already have a title, it would be cool to see what names other people could come up with. Maybe you'd even change your mind!

That would be really, really awesome! Please consider my idea!!!

Anonymous said...

Ooooooh!!!! I <3 that idea, sassysilver!!! Please Jess, you HAVE to do that!!! It would bee SOOOO COOL!!!!

BTW- since its MLK day, I don't have school and am superbored. So please post!!! I'll be checking the computer :)

olivia said...

Jess,

I can't wait to get RR!

Anonymous said...

oh uhm, since youve already shot the cover for #12, does that mean you already have a title? huh? huh?

Sara S said...

Yay! its my half b day! and MLK day! ooh and i love sassysilver's idea. i think it would be cool to do that! and i read RR on saturday and it was amazing! i cannot wait for HSD i know it will be awesome!

Crave for Canterwood Crest said...

I luv sassysilvers idea! I ordered RR. Should get here 2morrow. Waiting...

Anonymous said...

That's a really good idea...I would love to do that and I'm sure people could make up some really cool titles. Everyone here is probably super creative. And Anonymous I am completley bored too and have already checked this website like 5 times for new post because my school is off for MLK day...Jess, are you going to do a contest for HSD early soon.

Anonymous said...

Omigod, you HAVE to do sassysilver's idea. I have the most PERFECT title in my head!!!

So. Bored. Just made chocolate-peanut butter smores and they are super good :)

Thoroughbredstar said...

I just came home from riding lessons! Cold and fun. I was bringing in my lesson horse from pasture and we did a little ice skating!! My sis's lesson horse kept trying to bite everyone HAHA I can't wait for HSD sooooo excited!!! :)I totally agree Sassysilver's idea is soo major cool!!

Hannah said...

so bored today. la la la la la

Sara S said...

i just got back from lessons, too! it was really fun but we had to do this tricky jumping course with really tight turns, but it was fun. my school borse liked the carrot i gave her, it still had the green stem on it:)

Anonymous said...

Just wondering... why on your sidebar does it say 'title eleven to be revealed' when it was already revealed? And BTW I luv sassysilver's idea!!! So. Cool.

Anonymous said...

Wait Elite Ambition is the name of the 11th book right.

Anonymous said...

Nooo...

Elite Ambition is book #10. The title for #11 is Scandals, rumors, lies.

Kathleen said...

I definitely agree about the criticizing, it got a bit out of control.
My weekend was pretty normal. I don't ride horses like it seems like all of you do, so I was just relaxing at home. Reading, writing, watching some TV, going to the mall. I found really cute lip gloss, but it was really expensive, so I didn't get it.
Hope you all had a good weekend, too!
