Rosalyn Mary Mull

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

My wife Mary and I just had our third baby, Rosalyn Mary Mull, who we plan to call Rose. Forgive me if I'm out of it for a few days. Mommy and baby are doing well, but the whole family is sleepy and distracted.

I'm psyched that the third Fablehaven book, Grip of the Shadow Plague, will be out in less than a month!

    Fablehaven is such a great book! i
    got to read it by being inspired by a friend named Alysss. i hope that i can inspire you to read the book too! the beginning is boaring. but please, do not put the book down there! it gets better! i mean? what book isn't good about mystical creatures and fairy milk?

    i really enjoyed the first fable haven book but i live in england and cant find the second one anywhere! i think brandon mull is a great auther but i just need to find his other books somewhere. i would greatly recomend him to anyone and will keep searching for the second book.

    Fablehaven is my absolute FAVORITE book! It is so amazing, I love it! I LOVE the characters and the writing is brilliant! I've been writing my own modern fantasy book for about a year now and I'd be lucky if it's half as good as Fablehaven! God bless!!


  1. Blogger Alexis said:

    Fablehaven opened up the imagination I didn't know existed. It really showed me what great authors we have in the world. Thank you for writing such an enjoyable and magical book! I am really looking forward to reading book #3.

  1. Blogger Alison said:

Fablehaven is an awesome book and i hope brandon mull keeps writing more of the books.Though i met him at a book singing and he said he is only making 5 of the Fablehaven books.Anyway i hope everyone keeps reading them i just finished the 2nd and it was brilliant! Keep reading them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats to your family on Rosalyn. I am a teacher in Gilbert, AZ and have read Fablehaven 1 and 2 to my students. They loved them both. We are currently reading The Candy Shop War. I am excited that we will get to see you again in Mesa, AZ for a book signing. Thank you so much for writing such wonderfully imaginative books. You are keeping children reading (former students come to talk to me about The Candy Shop War) and looking forward to read alouds.

  1. Blogger Cherjr said:

    Congrat's on the new baby. They are sooo much fun. I should know I haved a few my self(8). We came and saw you in Idaho(twice). I have to say the books are great!!! Three of my chidren have read them along with myself(family rule mom has to read the books first). Maybe we like them to much right now we have one kid goat named Seth and one named Kendra, we also have a chicken named Ruth and one named Goldielocks lol. As a homeschool mom I have to thank you for the reading guides at the back of the books they have made incorperating them into our school work a breaze. I keep telling people about the books and now I have two or three families just as hooked as we are lol.

    good luck with the family,

  1. Blogger Emily said:

    Holy cow!! I am reading Fablehaven right now, and I love it! You came to my school last year, and I regret not getiing a signed copy! Fantasy wasn't my kind of book back then, but you helped me to enjoy reading! Because of your book, my grades are getting better, and I'm able to expand my social circle! Thank you so much! I owe you a BIG one!

  1. Blogger Sunny said:

    Congratulations on your new bundle. :-)

    My daughter is a huge fan - read both books in three days flat. She is an avid reader, reading 2,000 pages per month, and you are her favorite.

    Our family has listened to the audio versions during our morning and afternoon commutes and they also, are very well done. DD is now counting down the days until the release of FH3.

    p.s. She found out about your books through your visit to her school. You really do make a difference. Thanks!!

  1. Blogger Kurt said:

    Congratulations on the expansion of your family. Kids grow up too fast. I'm currently reading "The Candy Shop War" to my two girls. We need to finish so I can read them "Fablehaven II" They loved the first "Fablehaven" book. I have also recommended these books to several of my co-workers jr. high school teachers. One of them is reading your book to her class. Keep up the good work!

  1. Blogger jaina said:

    I love your books!!!! I used to hate reading, but your books made me love to read. I can't wait until Fablehaven 3. I am reading Candy Shop War now, and I love it. Once I started to read it, I couldn't stop reading. But I have to go to school, and I barely have any time to read at school. I hope you make way more Fablehavens. I finished the 1 and 2 Fablehaven in one month, (not together.)

  1. Blogger Bren said:

    I LOVE Fablehaven! It is such a GREAT and fun book. You and I like the same exact things Brandon! The first page I read of Fablehaven lured me in! I read that whole book and I'm done with the 2nd book (Rise of the Evening Star) Which had a suspenceful ending. I NEVER suspected that the Sphinx was a traitor like that! What a shocker! Well, I just bought the Candy Shop War which I am SURE is gonna be just as good! Thanks Brandon and keep it up! I am a HUGE fan!! :)

  1. Blogger Leia said:

    Congrats on your new little one! Hope she and mom are doing well!

  1. Blogger Elena said:

    Wow.I truly believe that you can best J.K.Rowling with these books if it keeps on goin' this good. Believe me on this, I read your first Fablehaven book in a DAY. I read for 10 hours straight. After that, I layed awake all night just wondering what the second book could possibly be like. And sure enough, I couldn't put that book down either. Same with the third. You totally reached a fantasy level that I didn't know was out there in the world. Your books are great and I can't wait to read the rest.-Andrew-

  1. Blogger Emily said:

    I will be so sad when the series ends. I will probably cry. You should NEVER stop writing! You are the one who made a difference in my life. (See one of the above Emily's) Thanks!

  1. Blogger kito345 said:

    your series is inspiring, its a bit to get me to read a book all the way through, but I've read your books more than five times each, keep up the good work, can't wait to find out about the next ones. hopefully soon. keep writing, your a good author.
