[highlanderlas] 3:13 pm: Haven't found the song, had to hop over here
[Melonie] 3:13 pm: Karen - if we can ask questions, I'd like to know - you said the Fever series came to you "in toto" - were you asleep, driving, having luncj, what?
[Leiha] 3:13 pm: it certainly helps having fans buy 2 and three copies, LOL.
[Karen Marie] 3:14 pm: Thanks for the congrats, but take a bow because you all put me there!

[MeShelle] 3:14 pm: Lol well i have 2 copys...
 3:14 pm: 3) to lend out
[Jewelstir] 3:14 pm: Karen - is this the highest you debuted? 'cause I have a feeling Faefever will be higher?!
 3:15 pm: Faefever will definitely be higher.
[Chakacool] 3:15 pm: I was very happy to wait to get my copy. But I called my bookstore to hold it for me.
[Karen Marie] 3:15 pm: Yes, it is the highest, and my publisher was thrilled with it, so here's hoping I can get them to push the nextone out sooner...
[highlanderlas] 3:15 pm: Your book Spell was life changing for me in many ways!
 3:15 pm: Just How many sales does #9 represent?
 3:15 pm: but seriously the 1000 plus of us on the boards are just a drop in the bucked - KMM has created a superior product and the world notices
[Chakacool] 3:15 pm: I hope so. That would be amazing.
 3:15 pm: I want to read it!
[MeShelle] 3:15 pm: oh Karen if you get us FF sooner well that would be awsome
[Karen Marie] 3:15 pm: celestial girl, I wish I knew LOL.
[Melonie] 3:15 pm: Thanks for working so hard despite the hard times with your health - you have made a lot of happy women out there (and probably some men too!)
 3:16 pm: Faefever soon would be most awsome!
[Jewelstir] 3:16 pm: We'll be glad to help...tell them we'll all buy and extra copy of 3...maybe that will work. (That way we don't have to loan ours out)
[Karen Marie] 3:16 pm: sorry guys, I'm such a chat virgin that I can't keep up so if I'm missing direct questions, I'm REALLY sorry
 3:16 pm: That is the best news ever! I hope we can push them to release Faefever sooner!! yippie!!!

[Jewelstir] 3:17 pm: Well if you want to give us something more concrete....
 3:18 pm: Karen I wonder how you take all the speculations, when you think of it, the people on this board have a huge magifying glass on every .. tiny bit of the books!
[SueZ] 3:18 pm: We have a million theories too
[Melonie] 3:18 pm: Hemingway always said the same - no matter how many theories people had about his books, he would never confirm or deny.
[chickadee] 3:18 pm: Lots of clues even in the song alone
[chickadee] 3:18 pm: Who is the singer in the song?
[Debbie_D] 3:18 pm: Karen, have you ever used an idea that a fan has mentioned on the message board IN a book?
[Tonya] 3:19 pm: Karen are you going to give us any clues or tid-bits...Oh please?
