  1. Thank you mystery book reader for your comment. Yes, it would be interesting to know if the author has given her character aspects of herself. I have to say I really like this Thursday 13 it really give you a sense of who the character is. Can’t wait to read the book. Thanks for stopping by Gale.

  2. mystery book reader,

    I have been asked that question a lot. I can tell you Kizzy is a very complicated lady. She has so many sides.

    Oh, wouldn’t you like to know! (laughs) I will never tell.


  3. Hi Gale and Becky,

    I’m late to the party again! So much to do this time of year. Becky, this Thursday 13 came out great, as you said, it really lets us get to know Kizzy.

    Gale, I have to ask, what is up with the cigarette smoke? Just a quirk or is there some greater meaning that I can only find out if I read the book?

    Also, you were pretty mean to poor Kizzy, taking both of her parents in the span of two years. Do you feel guility? LOL!

    Best of luck with the tour.


  4. Cheryl,
    Thanks for your great questions. This character sure has mounting obstacles in front of her with losing both parents in the span of two years. I wonder what other obstacles she has to overcome?

  5. Cheryl,
    Kizzy is allergic to cigarette smoke. It sets off her allergies and makes her sneeze. It is a physical malady. Kizzy has many obstacles and traumas in her life. Some of them change he forever. But she keeps trodding along through life as many of us do.

    And, no, Cheryl. I do not feel guilty LOL! It was part of the story and it served a very important mission.

    Thanks for blogging in,Cheryl.

    Good to hear from you again, too, Rebecca.


  6. I’m always late to the party, lol. Like my grandmother used to say, “I’d be late for my own funeral.” I just wanted to stop by and thank Becky for hosting Gale today and say good look to our friend, Gale, on her virtual book tour!

  7. Dear pump up your book, no-one is ever late to the party, were here all day and then some. That’s the great thing about blogging, the interviews are always avaiable. It was a pleasure to have you visit.

  8. pumpupyourbook,

    I promise you – you will not be late for your own funeral. LOL With all this good luck I am receiving from all these sweet people, I have to be a success!

    Thanks for blogging in today. Great to hear from you.


  9. Sounds like my type of read. Kizzy reads to be a lot like someone I’m friends with, or someone I could be friends with. 🙂

  10. Thank you for your comment Babeet. Doesn’t Kizzy just sound like the type of person anyone could like? I hope we are perceiving this the correct way. Any comments Gale?

  11. Babeet,
    Actually I think Kizzy could have beenn a good friend. She does have one friend in the book. However, even the friendship ends with disastrous circumstances. Poor Kizzy.

    Thanks for blogging in Babeet.


  12. “She does have one friend in the book. However, even the friendship ends with disastrous circumstances. Poor Kizzy.”

    So you torture her even more? Oh Gale, remind me not to tick you off. LOL! Has anything good ever happened to Kizzy?

    I like this book more and more each time I learn more about it. Do you think Santa will put it in my stocking?


  13. Another great question. These comments have been so good today that it’s a shame they are in the comments section. Maybe, I should create an new entry with just the comments.

  14. Cheryl,
    Kizzy does have some wonderful things happen to her. You learn about them in the book(s) – there are sequels – also.
    I hope Santa does put it in your stocking. Tell Santa it is available all over the place. If the elves have trouble finding it, they need to check out my website and the Gale Laure Bookstore page. HoHoHo!


  15. Good night, everyone.

    It is 7:30 pm in Texas. I have a very important dinner to attend with my sweet husband.

    I want to thank everyone for blogging in today. The questions and discussion have been wonderful.

    I want to thank Paperback Writer and Rebecca for hosting me today. It was fun!

    I will be checking back sporadically for any future questions or comments.
