rawr-balrog asked: I just wanted to let you know that I am really excited to read Great! Everything I have heard about it is wonderful. I'm using it as a reward to myself for finishing my literature seminar project so I can graduate and stuff. (Also I think it would probably make a great classroom read for my future high school English class!)

Oh wow, thank you! I used to work as a high school English teacher too!

Anonymous asked: I just wanted to say thank you. You always take time to thoughtfully address people's worries, fears, and issues. That's not your job but you do it anyway, and I know it helps so many people, me included. Also, as a queer person I appreciate your book "Great" and I can't wait to buy it when I go out this weekend. Thanks for all that you do.

Hey, thank you so much! I hope you really dig it. It’s fluffy and superficial on one level and deeper on another level, and my hope is that you can enjoy it whichever way you choose to read it. Or you could read it all of the ways! Hooray hooray!
