Feedback - Let Me Hear It

Hello. Thanks so much to all of you that particpated in The Year of the Hangman Book Blog. I know that I learned a lot from this process and I hope that you also thought it was a worthwhile experience. I would love to hear your feedback on the project.

Here are some possible questions for your feedback:
  • What did you like about the project?
  • What did you not like about the project?
  • If you didn't post often - why not?
  • What did you think of the questions each week?
  • Did you perfer one big question (like the one for Week4) or would you rather have choice from multiple questions (like we did in Weeks 1 through 3)?
  • Would you like more interaction with the author?
  • Did you like the additional links to learn more about some of the characters in the novel?
  • Would you do a project like this again? Why or why not?

I do hope to do this again around the end of April 2006 with a book called "Guerrilla Season" by Pat Hughes. This is one of favorite books of all time - the Civil War in Missouri with a young Jesse James as one of the characters, well researched, very historically accurate and the storyline is engaging. Check out the book blog for Guerrilla Season at I have some ideas that I think will make this book blog even more interactive so check it out

Again please drop me a line at Thanks so much.
