I wonder how many people have read this book, The Phantom Returns. It's more of a novelette because it's so small.

The story picks up after the 2004 musical film. It has it ups and downs as to whether things will work out for Erik and Christine, but I liked it. I just wished it was longer.

Stefanie is a friend of mine and a promising writer.

Anyone else read this book?

I haven't as of yet read this one but it is on my list...

off the general topic: I spoke to Stefanie. I thought it was cool. I told her that i hadn't gotten her novel yet but i promised that i would and then i asked her if she was to write anything else. This is what she told me:
Quote :
Nikki-- Do let me know when you get a chance to read TPR-- as for up and coming-- just heard heard from my agent and I have six publishing houses looking at my second novel "A Gentleman's Best Friend" -- non-poto (gasp) regency romance-- I am crossing my fingers 24/7!!


off both topics: i know that most forums won't allow you to get off the subject but i believe that it should be okay as long as the subject is still discussed and the forum is active lol! . because i'm cool like that

I agree. I helped her with A Gentleman's Best Friend. Did she tell you about it? I so totally enjoyed it. I can hardly wait for publication. It's a romance novel set in 19th Century England. The story evolves around the trauma and misadventures of a young matchmaker. The fun begins when the marquis she falls in love with mistakes her status as "m" to mean mistress instead of matchmaker. You'll love it.

I really don't call this off subject since we are discussing the author.

How are the sales going with The Phantom Returns? How is AGBF coming along?
I can hardly wait for this one to come out.

AngelicRose you can find this little darling on Amazon.com.

It's a quick paced, enjoyable read. As I said before, my only complaint, it was too short.

I'm afraid I don't buy things on the internet. I had a very bad experience (stolen credit card/identity theft) and now I don't like to use credit cards over the net or phone. I'd only be able to buy it at a bookstore with cash. Crying or Very sad

You really can't find this in the book store, yet. If you want me to buy it for you, I could send it to you and you could pay me. Just a suggestion. I completely understand what you mean. I've felt the same way.

Pm me if you want and we could discuss arrangements. Razz Razz Razz

Most self published books are in print for a short period of time. This happens with most any book which
is not in demand and it's no longer printed. When this happens, the price goes up. They figure if you want
it bad enough you'll pay any price for it.

Amazon.com still has it for $12.95:http://www.amazon.com/Phantom-Returns-Stefanie-Cole/dp/0979076846/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1215141925&sr=8-1[url][/url]http://www.amazon.com/Phantom-Returns-Stefanie-Cole/dp/0979076846/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1215141925&sr=8-1[url][/url][url][/url]

That's where I got my copy.

I order from Amazon.com all the time. I could buy it and mail to you. Amazon is very secure and you don't have to
use a credit card online. You put in the order, tell them you will pay by check and they will wait for the check.

Hope this helps. Sorry to say, no book is worth $80.00.

Why don't you pm the author. She's a forum member. In the meantime, I'll send her an email and see
what she suggests.

I was afraid your mother may object. Just trying to help.
