I've read your book, Moments of Grace and Spiritual Warfare in The Lord of the Rings. It's good. Is this new book you're writing about Bilbo and Frodo's journeys going to be like that one?

Author Reply: Thanks! I am glad you enjoyed it. Could I please beg the favor of leaving me a review on Amazon and/or GoodReads? That would be splendid. Many thanks and hobbity hugs in advance. :) :)

The next book will not have any of the 'all you need to learn about life you can learn from LOTR' stuff but focus on the physical, psychological and spiritual journeys of our favorite Bagginses.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A good reunion, and a peaceful transition to their new lives. Thanks for this one, and good luck in your endeavors.

Author Reply: Le hannon, my dear Larner, for all your years of loyal reading and reviewing! I would think I will be back, just taking a break now.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

I read in your story summary today that this story is finished! Congratulations on bringing it in for a safe landing. I am behind in my reading, but I look forward to snatching a moment here and there until I reach the end.

This chapter is bittersweet, but the love shines through.

I'm glad that Boromir will remain when Bilbo has departed, and that Frodo still has the reunion with Sam to look forward to, and that Sam will behold his beloved Master healed.

Author Reply: Glad you continue to enjoy! You only have a few more chapters to go. I hope you enjoy and there is a little gift for you at the end (though it is not named so - but I think you will recognize it).

Nanarmie, God bless, Antane :)

I have loved this story from beginning to end. It leaves me feeling peaceful, hopeful, warm, and full of love. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Author Reply: Thank you so much, my dear! That is an honor as I know it had a ton of angst in it too and I am glad you still loved it and it gave you all it did. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

It's listed as still being "in progress"; are you going to change that status to "complete" now?

This is a good story! I like how you ended it with Sam's arrival, and their eventual entrance into Heaven.

Author Reply: Thank you! I will be changing the status momentarily. It was fun to have Sam come and be all befuddled and joyful.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A gentle and blessed death, and a delightful beginning to Bilbo's next adventure.

Author Reply: Le hannon, my dear Larner! The best is yet to come. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Poor Frodo's the only hobbit in the Undying Lands now. It'll be decades before Sam joins him. Then I wonder how long they'll have together before they follow Bilbo to the other side?

Author Reply: The only hobbit physically but certainly Frodo is connected by heart with the brothers he left behind, so he's not so bad off. :) Who knows indeed how long they will have together but enough time to enjoy each other's physical presence and let Sam have a good time back with his beloved Elves too.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Go, my dearest Bilbo, and have your adventure.

This passing is so gentle and lovely, I felt I was there with them, seeing Bilbo to his next and long-anticipated journey. And ohhh, those two final lines! Just wonderful.

Author Reply: Le hannon, my dear! I thought it important that Frodo give his blessing to make it easier for Bilbo to let go as they knew was inevitable at some point. No easier perhaps on Frodo than the first time but with the hope of seeing each other again. I like the ending too. :) Glad it was so real for you.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A heartening birthday.

Author Reply: Every day in every way he is getting better and better. The sore blow of losing Bilbo is coming but they are together now. Yea!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Pippin and Merry were determined to turn everyone in the Company into a hobbit that was not already one

What a lovely detail. This is a wonderful chapter for September 22nd!

Author Reply: Le hannon, my dear! I thought it would be something they would do. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
