I can’t explain how surreal it feels to have fans…
I was recently tagged on Twitter by a father desperate to get a copy of my second book for his daughter after she read the first one in a matter of days, only putting it down to eat, sleep and go to school!
I had met Alanna, his friendly 12-year-old at a Christmas fair in Richmond North Yorkshire where I was promoting my first book in the trilogy. She purchased one but was too late to pre-order the second.
After reading her father’s tweet I arranged to meet with his wife to sell her a Limited Edition copy of ‘The Vengeful Witch’ in person.
Sara, her mother, told me that Alanna finds a lot of books too heavy going and hard to read and often can’t finish them, but was hooked by the storyline of my first book ‘The Tormented Witch’ from the start.
Before saying goodbye she asked for a quick selfie. I have to admit it’s very touching and humbling to have such a response as this has been a dream of mine for a long time. It gives me such confidence and determination to continue on writing even after I’ve completed The Crowded Souls series.
Book Three of the Trilogy ‘The Repentant Witch’ is well under way and 2017 will see the completion of all three books of The Crowded Souls series. I hope to get out and about more and more because meeting with my readers and getting all the great feedback makes all the hard work worth it.
