“Same boring books.”

You should be ashamed of yourself! (I’m only half joking here.) Never, ever, ever denigrate your own work. There are too many others who are too ready and willing to jump on one’s writing and tell the world what crap it is and how useless one is as a writer. (Like they could do it any better!)

If you aren’t satisfied with something, do it better next time. Or re-do it and put up the new edition. Or take it completely down, if you just can’t stand it.

But NEVER tell the world that it’s bad! We will make that judgment ourselves, thank you very much.

Because… just sometimes… the world is right and the author is wrong.

Always your F.F.F.

Hi Hugh,

Will you ever be offering the Molly Fyde series in a box set? Seeing as this series already has four entries, do you have any plans to bundle them (perhaps with these shiny new covers)?

Awesome stuff (what I’ve read), keep writing, I’ll be reading.

I know it’s crass to ask writers when “the next book will be out” but…well…ummmmm

When is the next Molly book coming out?

BTW – love the covers!

As far as I know, these are Jasper’s only book covers. He’s not affordable, even for me. He sent me two pieces as a fan of my books. I contracted the rest, seeing them as an investment in pieces of art. For publishing, this kind of money doesn’t make much sense.

Hey Hugh,

Can I respectfully disagree that I am not affordable! I have done many many illustrations free of charge or at a greatly reduced price, because I love the subject matter, I have a passion for drawing and reading, not money. As an illustrator I am lucky that I do a lot of add work and illustrations for big international companies, and of course they pay me very well!
Every month I try to do at least one commission that is not about money alone,
it keeps me sane and in love with what I do! So by all means if writers want to contact me, they can at: jasper@jasperart.nl
Illustration is my first love, but it is followed closely by reading!
I still remember bying my first kindle and being incredibly excited about finding all these wonderful new writers that I had never heard of! Thats how I discovered Hugh, he kept me up all night and made me late for work!

My compliments to Jason, thats some beautiful typography and a great improvement!!

best wishes,
Jasper Schreurs

Reese’s peanut butter cups represent two great things that go together: chocolate and peanut butter. I assume Hugh is saying the same about Jason Gurley typography and Jasper Schreurs cover art.

And, no, I don’t work for Reese’s. Nor Hugh, for that matter. :)

Keep up the fantastic stories, Hugh!

Wow, Hugh, love the cover art! So happy for you! I really enjoyed the first book in the Molly Fyde series. Need to get time to read more of them. I think it’s nice that you are still so humble as to worry about others liking your books, but as you know by now you can’t please everyone anyway and we are always our own worst critics. Just remember how many people wish they could even write a book at all, much less a bad one. Keep putting the new and improved ones out there. Someday you may surpass other famous writing icons and I can say I knew you when…

I’d second Peter Spencer’s notion, what do Reeses Peanut Butter have to do with these stunning covers?
