  1. I did it! I saw the e-mail at like 9am but I had to get to my break from school. In conclusion: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!!!!

  2. Mission accomplished!! We own all the books( plus the pre-order) and all the kindle versions?. Left a 5 star review. Thank you so much

  3. Mission accomplished!!! On audible and kindle!
    BTW: thanks so much for writting these books! i love recomending them to people i know! they are true classics

  4. Mission complete!
    A truly fantastic series that is worthy of many fans! Here’s to hoping more people learn about all your fantastic books!

  5. Sorry, I read the email, but I’m a little late to the party commenting about my review. Already own the entire series in paperback (except Ember Ends), Kindle, and Audible.
    And since I don’t use Facebook, I advertise in the worst way I know how… by posting my Audible review to Goodreads and sharing it on my blog, which no one reads anymore (except maybe a few of you):

    Hopefully you’ll enjoy my informative post about how to recycle the GOLDEN STICKERS on the packages shipped from the S.D.Smith Store.

    1. ugh… caught that too late… Ember’s End (sorry).
      In my defense, it is the only book not on the shelf right behind me… next to my collection of Shel Silverstein books.
      Also, I admit in my review that I absolutely love the series, but I did rate this book with only 4 stars. So I guess my mission is not accomplished.

      But I’ll add (again) that the kids and I LOVE these coloring pages!
      Please, keep them coming!
