Putting your words out there for all to see is a scary as all hell. Book 8 and it doesn't get any easier. So when ARCs of Amber left my hands yesterday of course I was nervous (read sick to my stomach). Crimson has received great reviews so far and the next instalment has to meet certain expectations ...
So when I have comments from ARC readers like 'this is really fahking amazing', 'my heart is breaking' and 'I need emotional support', when they tell me that they have real tears because of what I've written, and I get demands for the final instalment to be at least 500 to 1000 pages long, that readers are taking their time reading because they don't want it to end, yeah, I kinda feel pretty damn good!
Then I'm reduced to happy tears for the millionth time by this:
Just the whole idea that someone has gone to this kind of trouble for me? Yep, I am a total mess right now! Thank you so much Gillian from A is for Alpha B is for Books for creating this beautiful piece of art!
The point of this post? THANK YOU! Thanks to everyone that has supported me along this incredible journey. The fact that you have taken Mack and Sir into your hearts and you are enjoying their story means the absolute world to me. And when you take the time to tell me how you feel, message me and call me names, write poems and reviews, and make teasers ... I. Am. Completely. Blown. Away!!!
And I'm kinda thinking, maybe I can write after all! Of course, I wouldn't have gotten to where I am if it weren't for your encouragement and support. In particular the support from my fabulous friend Renee - you make me a better writer. We make an awesome team!
