    a) Oh, Beebo. I have a bit of a literary crush on Beebo, I must admit. I also really need to hear the music from the musical version of the books.
    b) I’m so glad there’s a Tumblr for Persistence. I love that Ivan and her fiance edited the book together!

      There’s a musical version?

      Ivan edited it with her fiancé? Jeez, Cass, even with all the internet scouring I do, you’re much more on top of it than I am! Thanks for the info. I’ve been enjoying the Persistence tumblr so far; they seem to be utilizing it well, not just leaving it.
