(No really, it is seriously, honestly, the most incredible thing!)
My first KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES fan art!!!!!
From a 13-year-old reader who wrote the sweetest message along with it (yes, I TOTALLY cried).
ISN'T THIS AMAZING????
I... I don't even know where to start. Not only is this gorgeous (seriously, this is one talented kid--and this is so getting framed and hanging in my office) (it also makes me want a KEEPER manga like whoa--ARE YOU LISTENING, UNIVERSE???) but I know exactly which scene this is and just... to see a reader so inspired by these crazy characters who live in my head is just... well, once again I have no words
I'M A WRITER AND I KEEP RUNNING OUT OF WORDS!!!!
Except that I can say that clearly I have the best job ever. Which was great to be reminded of because the revision on KEEPER 2 is currently kicking my butt. So this is just the motivation I needed to keep slogging through.
And I just want to add a quick thank you to all the others who've taken the time to send me emails about loving KEEPER (of which there has been quite a lot, surprisingly enough). I haven't posted your letters because it just seems... shamelessly self promoting. But I have read and loved each and every one of them and if I haven't replied yet I promise I will. And in the meantime THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Okay... back to revising! (well... after staring at this gorgeousness just a *little* bit longer)
