Well, I was held up by holiday visits to the UK, guests in the house and 'real life' in general. But I finally got it out. 'Partners' is up and published or publishing at all the usual eBook outlets.
I've been so nervous about writing this series. When I initially received an email from a reader asking if it would be possible to re-write the 'Buying the Virgin' series, told from the point of view of the guys, I pretty much ignored it. But then, when I had a second similar request (entirely by co-incidence I'm sure) only a couple of days later, it made me think.
As it happens, there's a famous (much more so than me lol!) example on-going right now. E. L. James wrote the first three books of 'Fifty Shades of Grey', but is now re-telling the story from Christian's point of view in 'Grey'. For myself, I'm enjoying the retelling, but I didn't want to appear to be 'cashing in....'
And so, it seemed the best thing to do, to ask my readers what they thought of the idea. Putting a post up in my newsletter produced hundreds of responses. I was staggered. I'd thought I might get a couple of dozen. And then, to top it, 85% of the replies said that it was something they would want to read.
Another questionnaire to my readers, and again, a huge response, with suggestions to name the new series. The winner was 'Mastering the Virgin' and the four readers who all came up with that suggestion get a mention in the dedication at the front of the books.
And so, I started writing, worrying all the time about whether I could tell the same story again, with enough pizzazz to entertain folks who already know the tale.
But it looks as though I needn't have worried. 'Friends' was first released about a month ago, and did extremely well. In fact I actually made it into the top 100 Amazon Erotica writers at number 83 (very briefly - it lasted a couple of hours lol!). I was thrilled!
So here we are. 'Partners' is out. The next in the sequence will be 'Allies', and hopefully, events and adventures in the lives of James, Michael and Charlotte will continue to entertain.
I'll do my best anyway....
Happy Reading :-)
