#Heartshared!

Comment

Hi everyone!

The HEART books have been making their way into your homes and I wanted to share some reactions and photos with you. Thank you all so much for helping me tell this story. It's not just my personal story about finding where you fit in but I feel that it is everyone's. So thank you for allowing me to tell my version and really relating to it, finding yourself in these two characters.

A lot of people I've talked to who have read the book have felt what LB and Thump have felt at one point or another. It's great to hear such a positive response from the masses. I also have a few reactions from comic professionals, people who's work I admire.

Check it out:
