Hi Christina, I just had to tell you that I'm officially hooked on Freya, after reading the first chapter. So as soon as your book's available up here in the Arctic, I'm going out for a copy, and then turn off the phones and the pc, curl up in bed with some water, and chocolate, and read until I finish.
From what I can tell from the first chapter, you've captured us Icelanders quite brilliantly! So I'm waiting eagerly for your book to wash upon our shores.
I know how difficult being an Icelandaholic is, since I have a few friends State-side, that suffer from that same syndrome. Trust me when I tell you folks, it does NOT get any better! But what a beautiful addiction!
I've bookmarked your blog, and will keep coming in for more stories from you, I really like your way with words!
Best wishes from tiny little Iceland.
P.S. I know some of Páll Ólafsson's poems as well, and sing many of them on a regular basis.

Dear Berglind, your words have put such a huge smile on my face, as I nervously await the day of publication next week! Thank you so so much. Maybe when I visit Iceland next you will sing some of my great great uncle Páll Ólafsson's poems for me?

Berglind Nanna Ólínudóttir

I'll gladly sing for you next time you're up here! In return, I might ask for a signature in my copy of Freya!
Best wishes for the official publication day, may you enjoy it to the fullest! Since we're now friends on the face, you have my details, so don't hesitate to contact me when you get up here next!
best wishes, BN


I just finished The Tricking Of Freya. I have to say I'm going to miss Freya and after reading your blog post about the 120 pages deleted I hope you will consider letting fans read the missing pages. I'm related by marriage to Ginette Warwick King her sister-in-laws mother. I read on her fb page that she saw you at the Oakland reading. It was funny I had just started the book emailed her and found she use to work with you. Small world. Congratulations on a wonderful debut novel. I look forward to your future works and I really would like to read the missing 120 pages.

I loved the book, too bad about the missing pages! I wished the book had 1,000 pages.
Can't wait for the next book, I hope it is about Iceland too.

Just finished your story of cutting 120 pages. I'd like to read them, even knowing that they don't fit perfectly in the present story line. Maybe, instead of incorporating them in another book, you could post them on the Internet.
