Iconoclast suggested that we check that we are allowed to be writing this blog, so we sent the following email to Brian Kiteley, the Author of The 3 a.m. Epiphany:


Dear Professor Kiteley,

We are writing to you about your book 'The 3 AM Epiphany'. We are a group of amateur writers who love your book, and enjoy sharing the exercises. To this end, we have recently started a blog - - on which we regularly post a challenge from your book, and our responses.

We have linked to your book on but it has just occurred to us that there may be copyright issues with posting the exercises, and we would like to find out what your feelings are on this.

Yours sincerely,
[Anistasya and The Iconoclast]


We were excited to recieve a response within hours:


Dear [Anistasya and The Iconoclast],

I am delighted you're doing this. I don't believe there are any copyright problems with the blog and using the language of the exercises, as long as you keep the link to the Amazon page fairly obvious.

Thanks for the kind remarks.

Best wishes,

Brian Kiteley, Professor and Associate Chair
English Department
University of Denver


We are very excited and more enthusiastic than ever. Here goes the next 190 exercises!
