A Special Message to My Turkish Readers

Dear lovely Turkish readers,

It is with great sadness that I must announce that I have decided to cancel my trip to Istanbul. As much as I am so very eager to meet my Turkish readers, which have made me a bestseller and embraced my books with so much love and enthusiasm, my agents and I have decided that this is not the best year for me to travel due to security concerns. I have also recently moved to a new publisher in Turkey, and though they have graciously offered to host me at the Istanbul Book Fair, I believe it’s best that I postpone my trip until next year.

My deepest and most heartfelt apologies for not being there to meet all of you, but I plan to make this trip a priority for next year, and I’m so very looking forward to it.

With much love and gratitude,

    Dear Sarah,
    I don’t know what i will say to you. I can’t explain but your books and me, we have special relation. I think they aren’t only book. They have special and mystic ambience. I read Blackberry Winter, The Bungalow and The Violets of March and it took 3 hours. Only 3. Lastly I think ‘The Bunlagow’ is true story. Maybe it isn’t. But my heart says ‘Its a true story, you must follow the tips. I found a photograph last summer. In Bora Bora, in 1943 and the photo was taken in quarterage. Can you send a mail me about this? I don’t know why this curious me, but I’m really curious.
    The Best Wishes
