    Happy birthday, Holly! Giving other people presents on your birthday is a delightfully hobbit-y way to celebrate. 🙂

    Happy birthday, Holly!

    As I’m ten years further down the pike, let me add that 54 is a wonderful age, and I’m betting you still haven’t even reached half-time.

    Thank you for writing and sharing your great courses. Thanks to you, I’ve written 1400 pages – published and soon-to-be – in 2.5 years, and I’m not even breathing hard!

    You are wonderful – Keep it up.

    I finally made the connection. I saw the old cover of Fire in the Mist and totally had a fan girl moment! I read that book almost twenty years ago! I adored the book! Along with Bones of the Past and Mind of the Magic. It was an amazing trilogy and I’m so honored to be taking this course by you!

    Thank you for making my adolescence amazing!

    And I hope you have a Wonderful Birthday!

    Hi Holly,
    Happy Birthday!! (But aren’t you supposed to get the presents..) Well! That was interesting – I already own them all! There’s still dialogue with subtext, but I’m getting to that one.
    I really value your “mentoring” over the last seven years. Thanks you for all your help.

    1. Holly Avatar

      Thank you. And I can’t say I’m sorry you own them all—thank you for that.

      But I AM sorry there wasn’t anything new for you.

      I’ll work on that.

    Best wishes on your B-Day!

    Happy Birthweek Holly! I purchased many of your great courses and clinics already. Our daughter started college. So no new purchases for now.

  44. Donna Avatar

    Happy Birthday Holly. Hope you have a good one. I haven’t bought any new things from you since I am broke as always. But I am hoping to get some for Christmas.

    Happy Birthday! 🙂

    Just to be clear – You said, “These offers are also good for purchases made ON OR AFTER Friday, September 5th, 2014”

    Does this mean it’s ONLY for purchases on or after September 5th, 2014?

    I’ve already purchased many of these items, and this is certainly a wonderful offer, but if I’m confused, I suspect others may be also.

    P.S. Happy Birthday – mine was a week ago.

    1. Holly Avatar

      Hi, Katie,
      That’s correct. My birthday is THIS week, but I didn’t want folks who had purchased big courses in the last several weeks (or my fiction, either) to feel badly that they purchased THEN instead of NOW.

      So I made room in my birthday bash for them to still get the free stuff, too.

  47. Johanna Avatar

    Hi Holly, just a head’s up that your link to your shop is missing the “c” in “.com”

    1. Holly Avatar

      Thanks, Johanna. It’s fixed now.
