That readers are so kind, let me know that they enjoy my work and ask me questions never fails to humble and touch me. I am especially overwhelmed by the response to The Deverell Series. You see, I released those books because I wanted to. I didn't think anyone would read them. I remember when my editor of Face to Face shot me a direct message. This is hard to edit. I'm in love with Varian Deverell. All I want to do is read. I need to do a second edit.
I've learned some things about myself releasing my books. Readers love my men and pretty much want to slap my women. They are frustrating. After a little self-reflection, I realized, well that makes sense. I'm a frustrating woman married to a wonderful man. We've made it so long together because my husband in so many is Varian Deverell. Didn't see it when I wrote it. Definitely see it now.
The number one question I get on this series is: Will there be more Deverell Books? Will Indy get his own story? A long time ago I wrote Kat's story. There are 3 books for the Merricks. I didn't really plan to write a book for Indy. A story rattled around in my head. I wrote the first page and the last, and then thought, No, I'm not sure I want to share Indy's story. Of course, I know what it is. But the overwhelming number of reader emails about Indy, will he have a story, made me decide to put his tale on paper. I'm working on it in between releasing the last books in my contemporary fictional universe.
So starting Summer 2015, I'm going back to my roots, the historical romance. It's what I started writing. It seems right that I should hit release on my historical universe. So July, my birthday month, I will be releasing Indy's story Love me Forever. And as ever, I don't think my readers will expect where I will take them. Love me Forever is a stand-alone novel. You don't need to read the Deverell Series to follow Indy's tale, but as always with me, the journey will be different and it will be the richer if you do read the Deverell Series. Why should my historical fictional universe be different than my contemporary world?
As always, I wish you Peace.
