Hearing from my readers makes me so happy

Omg.... connie!!! So... I am hooked on raven and Doogie please tell me there will be more!!! Unfortunately I didn't realize I skipped book #2, so I read 1 then 3. Anyway, you have a fabulous gift of writing for sure. I typically dont read "war stories" but I am so glad I took a chance on this series! Im not a blood and gore reader. I'm pretty much only a christian fiction reader. I think you've done a glorious job in making war real without being overly .... hmmm, descriptive? Gorey? Whatever the word is I'm trying to find? And then to realize it is my kind of genre anyway, double... triple... yay!!!
I think you've done a beautiful job! With the characters. With raven and Doogie. (I dont like her mom tho 😠). with getting to the reality of war. War isn't pretty. I'm sure there is lots we never hear about that really happens over there.
I'm hoping their story continues! I want to read about the miracle of them having little ones! Of Doogie NOT going back over! Of how raven and Doogie overcome their trauma together! Albeit not easily and with bumps. How raven NEVER turns his back on Sawyer. That Doogie will embrace her beauty, scars and all and accept the beautiful love that Raven gives her, unconditionally. Please, please tell me there will be a 4!!! 5, 6, 7? Lol
I'm hooked and love your style♡♡

Ephesians 4 31-32

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 

32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

July 20, 2017

The publishing industry is in constant flux and depending on the avenue you take for connection, is what information you are privy to. For the past ten or so years I have been writing. My first publisher pushed me to change my style to one more commercial, which in this Fifty Shades of Grey world, was much more racy. I changed my stories, I added spice and I followed other authors that wrote similar. I read similar work and soon found myself falling into the rabbit hole. I began to ask myself was I selling my soul for potential readership? I joined a touring Author's group and began selling books at local bookstores and fairs, however I found I was really unable to explain my books because I was embarrassed by their content. So I decided I needed to branch out more and signed up for book signing in Vegas. There I discovered I a totally different world and although I could explain my book to eager ears, I still wasn't comfortable with myself. What I found is I was being tempted to change for the chance of success. It took awhile and a lot of soul searching to realize I was changing into someone I didn't like or respect. Thankfully Anaiah Press gave me back my identity and I am writing what my heart tells me and not what a society that is falling to their desires necessarily wants.  But now I have to find my new TRIBE. I have to find my readership and leave those who read my stories before behind. Slowly I am rebuilding my brand and hope to find my TRIBE soon.
