A Brief Interruption

I know you guys want Part 3, but we need to do this first.

One year ago today...



Though it had been spotted in the wild before...




BREAK was officially unleashed upon the world.



I celebrated in the usual ways...





Since then, BREAK has received reviews like THIS:

Hannah Moskowitz delivers a passionate debut about one boy struggle to make his world sane by being insane. It's a story that I'll never forget!
A Must Read!


And like THIS...

I thought this book was absolutely boring and stupid. I am not trying to be overly harsh, but I found that I was bored throughout most of the book.


And I've received so many emails that made me do this.



So I would like to offer up a big slice of



to all the lovely ladies (and men--I know you're there somewhere) of Simon Pulse who believed in a crazy book like BREAK.

And to all of you--



Who have read BREAK, especially if you reviewed it, especially if you told a friend about it.

Thank you so much. It has been an amazing year.

Happy birthday, BREAK.

You are great, and you know it. Looking forward to a long and productive career from one of my favorite writers (and humans).

HAPPY BREAKBIRTHDAY!

Livia said...

You seem to have a nice healthy attitude about negative reviews :-)

hannah said...

Monotreme--That is so so sweet. Thank you so much.

Yvonne--NOT AS CUTE AS YOU BOO

Livia--The first few for every book send you into a rage, and then you seriously stop caring. As long as they read the book and got the facts right, I completely support their right to hate its guts.
