    Hello Again Octavia. I have finished reading Sidroc and now and starting all over with Book one again. I was wondering if sometime in the future you would be willing to write a Novella on Gyric. It would be interesting to know about his life before his misfortune and I’m sure we readers would love it!
    Thanks for your time and I can’t wait to meet you in September at the Renaissance Festival in Maryland.
    Kind Regards,
    Nora Lanier-Kohl
