I have been really reluctant to move away from the old blog. It has a bunch of hits on it, and my long term plan is to move away from this site, onto a permanent one.
In the meantime though, I've decided that blogger is too restrictive when it comes to people leaving comments. It's a bit of a rigmarole to log into whatever, so this should make it easier. I've left a link to the old blog for reference. Plus, hopefully when I move to a permanent solution, I can get it all pulled into one site.
I have heard from several readers since releasing Another Chance, and I love hearing from people so please feel free to leave a comment, or email me from the contact form. Also happy to get messages on Facebook or Twitter. I do look!
The response to Cassie's story has been overwhelming. Not everyone has connected with it, and that's okay. For me, it was very personal in as much as I knew what it was like to be one of those girls in school.
Of the good feedback I've had, I've cried at some of the messages. I'm so pleased to know that I'm not the only one who cried at the sad parts. The book continues to sell well, and I've got a lot more stories planned to come.
Next up is the Christmas story I mentioned on the old blog and on Facebook. I'm just finishing that to get it out before Christmas. It'll be about 20,000 words and be the goodbye to Alisha and Scott from Hot for the Boss. I loved writing her, she just said what she felt like, holding nothing back and slipping back into her was easy.
If I don't get another chance before Christmas, I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year for everyone. 2013 has been a mixed year for me, there's been amazingly good and not so good. 2014 is going to be better!
A big thank you to everyone who has supported me during the year. It has meant so much to me, and I am eternally grateful for you all.
