Today I’m taking part in the Passing Notes with Sykosa event! It’s kind of a cool thing where the main character from Justin Ordonez’s book Sykosa passes a note to my character ,Sam, from Forbidden Mind, and then I post their response. It’s a fun way to get to know other authors and characters AND there’s a chance for you to win $50, a paperback of Sykosa or one of 11 ebooks! The entry form is at the end of this post.

Sykosa has already written her note to Sam. Check out what she had to say: Letter to Sam from Sykosa.

Now, here’s Sam’s note back!



First off, love your name! It’s so unique, unlike Sam which is tres boring! I don’t even get a last name, so it sucks. Second, I really try not to read my friends’ minds. It’s hard sometimes, especially if you get really excited and ‘loud’ in your thoughts, but I do try.

And it’s hard to for me to read someone’s mind from a distance, so you’re safe! Lol Also I thought goosebumps meant someone was walking over your grave? But I could be wrong. I don’t think they mean someone’s reading your mind though, because I get them and no one else at my school can read minds.

It does sound like we have a lot in common. I’m so sorry about what your parochial school has done to you and your friends in covering things up with what happened. It sounds awful. I wish I could help, but I’ve kind of got my hands full here. See, something bad’s happening here too. I haven’t put all the pieces together yet, but I’m scared. My bff’s Luke and Lucy (twins… and O.M.G. Luke is so hot! You should meet him. I just wish he wasn’t like such a brother to me, because thinking about him like that is kind of—ew!) Anyways, they’re trying to help me figure out what’s going on before it’s too late.

So is Drake. Thing is, Drake and I have never met in person before. Crazy right? We practically live in each other’s heads though. And I won’t deny having certain—thoughts—about him. Shhh!! There, now you know one of my secrets too. lol

Anyways, I can’t wait to finally meet him in person. It’s really hard falling for a guy and never being able to touch him or sit with him or hold his hand or… you know, other stuff!

Does that sound totally crazy? Probably.

But it sounds like we’re in similar situations. It’s kind of ironic. You’re being hurt by the Roman Catholic Church and I’m being hurt by a paranormal organization with major secrets. Though I’m not religious and neither is Drake, the man who is like a father to him is actually Father Patrick, a Catholic Priest. We’re hoping he can help us. Guess there’s potential for corruption anytime you have humans involved in something, whether they have para-powers or not. But know that there are some good people in the church too. There’s potential for great kindness as well. Don’t give up!

Well, I hope it all works out for you. Thanks so much for contacting me and let’s try to stay in touch. Once I turn 18 I’m supposed to be free of this place, and that big day is just around the corner. I haven’t heard from Sarah Lawrence yet, but I’ll let you know. Maybe we can hang out sometime? If I’m ever in Washington on assignment I’ll try to look you up.

Talk soon,

Sam <insert unknown last name here>
