It looks like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but it’s not in handwriting.

160324-Sarah-Frey---Reyes-fanI emailed my first review to Laurisa White Reyes, because I got these books at our school’s Authors & Illustrators Day, and she asked me to email her when I finished them. They took me three days.

Here’s our emails:

Dear Laurisa Reyes,
I REALLY like your books! I think Xerxes should become friends with the gryphon. We should also find out what the gryphon’s name is. A good suggestion is Martha to go with Marcus. Or, Jay to go with Jayson or, Leia to go with Lael. One more thing: I think Lael and Marcus should get married.
1. How do you pronounce Kaie’s name?
2. Does the gryphon have a name?
Hope the third book comes out soon!
(On the way to Hestoria, Xerxes should get LESS annoying. He makes a lot of rude comments, in both forms! I still like him, though.)
Dear Sarah,
Your review of The Rock of Ivanore & The Last Enchanter was perfect and really made my day. I love your suggestions, especially the one about Lael and Marcus getting married. They are a little too young for that in these books, but in my imagination, someday they do get married. To answer your questions, Kaie is pronounced like ‘pie’ or ‘sky’ but with a K. Also, the gryphon does have a name, but Marcus doesn’t know what it is. The gryphon was owned by his mother (in The Crystal Keeper books), and so maybe Marcus will learn the gryphon’s name in book 3.
You’re spot on about Xerxes being rude. That’s his personality. I kind of like him that way. 🙂
I am hoping to finish the first draft of the Seer of the Guilde over the summer. Once the book is ready for publication, I will announce it on my blog and via my newsletter. It’ll still be a while, but stay tuned. It’ll happen eventually.
Thank you so much for writing. May I have your permission to post your letter & photo on my blog/website? If not, I completely understand, but I think it would be fun for others to read.
Take care!
Hey Ms.Reyes! I would LOVE to have my letter on your blog! It’s a real honor to have my own writing on a real author’s blog! Where  would I find a copy of the crystal keeper books? I’m gonna write a book called STARWARS The Universe .Any tips?
May the force be with you!
