Arielle--I'm not a marketing expert by any means. If you're writing for kids or young adults, Harold Underdown's book, THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO PUBLISHING CHILDREN'S BOOKS, is excellent. And I'd suggest joining SCBWI, where you'll find lots of help. If you're writing for adults, I have no knowledge, but I'm sure there are books, and there are certainly marketing and publicity firms for hire.

Heidi Balaraman--Thank you for letting me know!

Ellie--I'm so glad you enjoy my books! I don't think you should worry about finishing a story. Just go with what interests you and is fun. I think one will come along sooner or later that you stick with. For character development, you might try some of the prompts in WRITER TO WRITER and WRITING MAGIC, and you may find my blog helpful.

Dear Gail,
I have to say, your books are amazing! I really enjoy them, especially Ella Enchanted. It made me want to be more obedient to my parents. I also love Writing Magic and Writer to Writer.
I do have some questions. How can I stick with a story? I tend to write the beginning, go to bed, and wake up with a new story idea. I tend to forget about the old idea and move on to the new one.
I also want to add more dimension to my characters. They seem flat and bland to me. Any help?
Thank you for writing so many great books.
Ellie, age 10

Dear Lady Levine, I just finished reading Ella Enchanted to my daughter--thank you for writing this story. I was explaining to her that many of us have lived under such a curse, feeling we had to please others even at the expense of ourselves. This message is powerful and liberating. Thank you so much for recording Ella's story and triumph for all of us to learn from. I look forward to discovering the rest of your books as well. Heidi Balaraman of Palmer Lake, Colorado

Hi Gail. I've been reading your books for quite a while now. I'm currently on the one about the Lakti people. It's unique and I'm really enjoying it! I'm sure you have a million things going on, but could I pick your brain on marketing tips? I'm working on finishing a novel and am hoping to form a publishing strategy. If you have time to send me a quick email with a few ideas, it would be very muchly appreciated :)
