I've won like three contests on here. Good for me. I also used to be BethanyInCandyland before figuring out that I can change my username.

I also have an online blog - loudandaliveblog.wordpress.com where contributions are open to anyone and everyone for all of time. The other editor and I work individually with every submission, and we make sure that each and every one of you feel like you're a part of the website. Consider taking a look, hey?

    I think "Every Exquisite Thing" is probably never going to be directly addressed in the book, just as Mr. Booker never actually seems to address the meaning behind the title, as well as other parts of the novel he'd written (such as what happened to Wrigley). Then, I imagine, "Every Exquisite Thing" is going to be subjective; to the reader, to the characters, to the writer. I read one of Matthew Quick's other books - "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock" - which left me with hundreds of questions, never to be answered. I believe it'll be like that; a hundred and one questions, each as beautiful and insightful as the next - maybe some will be rather dull, or quite simple to answer, but each one will provide another slither of light to shed onto the book at hand - The Bubblegum Reaper. Each answer that Nanette searches for will explain parts of the book; parts of the mystery that she's trying to unravel (whilst undoubtedly answering questions of her own life) - and each answer is as exquisite as the next, even if it doesn't say much at all. I think this would be because everything, when looked at in a new or different light, can be exquisite - everything has the ability to be special and beautiful in its own right, or show us about the world in ways we hadn't assumed. I can't be sure, but maybe that's what is exquisite in this novel - the answers that she finds along the way; that teaches her about the world.

    I like how you think that the answers are exquisite, which is a really different way to look at it. This is a great answer :)

    No not yet, unfortunately, because the publishers haven't got back to Jess N.
    They should be here soon, though!

    I was going to just comment, but then I got really wrapped up in reading the spam comments on the post - like, I would never have enough willpower to sit there typing out post after post, just to win a book. On the other hand, it looks like a decent book and I kind of want it.

    Can we submit more than one of each type of entry? Or only one? Such as two poems, submitted separately?

    @[Sanguine] Thanks Sanguine. I appreciate you answering this for Bethany.
    I was looking into it earlier but fell asleep after getting too sleepy from reading and writing.
    Sorry in advance. Thanks again,
