BOM: Results and Reader Reaction

Tee hee.  I had to take a picture of the sign outside the King's Academy because it's the first time I've ever seen "DR. Angela Hunt" on a sign.  What an amazing school!  I've had a wonderful time with their students. 

I don't remember any unusual reader reactions to BROTHERS, except one: I regularly donate books to a prison ministry, and BROTHERS seemed to strike a chord with men who, like Simeon, have been imprisoned.  I didn't consider that possibility at all as I was writing, but in hindsight, I can see where Simeon's experience, even his troubled family backstory, might reverberate with people who have been incarcerated for any length of time.  

Tomorrow:  Q&A, so if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments box.  Thanks!

How far in advance do you work on a novel?
Give an example of how/when an idea came to you for one of your books.

Started Brothers yesterday and it is as good as I anticipated. Had to make myself go to bed last night!

What made you choose Simeon? I know Reuben convinced the others not to kill Joseph, and Judah has a "speaking part" in the Bible account of selling Joseph, but what captured you about Simeon? Or was it stuff later in the 12 tribes?
