Aw, you changed the title!
I mean, objectively it's a better title, and less likely to attract the attention of the copyright-lawyer version of ambulance chasers, but the original title was weird and I'm just hipster enough to appreciate that.

Also, there's a type in the tags due to hitting an m instead of a comma.

Looking forward to the publication! Can't wait to see what's in store for Rachel And Friends even though I should probably be worried as much as excited!

I did love the original title...it came from a dream. But I began to realize that some of my audience had never heard of the musical and couldn't understand what the reference was to.

Also, I saw a couple typos in Chapter 3. I admit I'm abashed to point them out unasked.
But, both of them amused me because at first I thought they might have been on purpose!

When talking to Xandra about her voices, "Siggy thrust at an invisible enemy with the top point of his poke axe." Upon examination, it's called a "poleaxe" a couple other times in the chapter, but at first I went back to see if I'd missed him acquiring it - I thought maybe he'd gotten it from the fireplace, and it was a fire poker designed to also function as a weapon! Unless you were making a pun because he's poking with it.

Later, when Rachel is looking warmly at her friends, Valerie is called "pin-cheeked." At first I thought this was some obscure phrase, and even tried Googling it. But, Joy is "pink-cheeked" just a couple sentences earlier.

Ironically, if I hadn't been reading well past my bedtime, I might not have been fooled into thinking I completely missed something, and might have mentally substituted what you probably meant and then forgotten about the matter entirely!

Also the sneak peak on wattpad has what appears to be the book description for the second book, and it's four chapters instead of the promised three.

Lol I suppose I am not supposed to laugh at my own mistakes, but poke axe amuses me.

Please, send any corrections you wish! The book has not yet gone through its very last check over, so I can still fix things!

I'll fix the 3 chapters thing. I decided to post 7 instead of three. ;-)

7 chapters?? Ace!

Incidentally, Nastasia wouldn't happen to be reading a book by one Lloyd Alexander, would she... ? :D
