MISS MOLLY ROBBINS DEBUTS
The best I can do - and I tell myself this every time - is write something that I love and then I just have to hope others like it too. After all, if I'm not writing something I love, what's the point?
As the first reviews come in for MISS MOLLY ROBBINS DESIGNS A SEDUCTION, I'm relieved to know I brought some entertainment and pleasure to readers. It makes the long hours scrabbling over a laptop, poring over research books and pondering out of the window with a glazed, silly look on my face, all worthwhile. It makes those hours of writing madly, squeezed tightly around working the "real" job, finally make sense to those who know me and have to put up with my anti-social nature.
People like my book! They like the characters that I fell in love with as I wrote about them.
Phew! Because you never know.
As I've said before, it's like sending a child off to school for the first time. I'm excited and yet I'm anxious. Will they make friends? Will they be bullied and come home with gum in their hair and dirty footprints on the back of their coat? You can love someone or something with all your heart, but there is no guarantee that others will feel the same.
So as I celebrate the release of the last book in the Sydney Dovedale series, I want to thank all my readers for their lovely reviews - and for befriending my little Molly "Mouse". Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for picking up my book, taking the time to read it, and leaving a review!
