Now all I have to do for Volume Three of The Governess is to finish up any editing my readers have pointed out, finish the cover changes, upload to Amazon, Lulu, and Kobo, and Voila! Finished! The plan is to release by Monday, July 29th! We'll see how close to that goal we get!

Yes, there is still work to be done on Volume Three of The Governess, but it is coming along nicely. My beta-readers are reading right now and will be back to me shortly with any needed changes to the content. Yay for readers!
You have all be so amazing to comment on my website and on the online bookstores where you purchased your copies, so thank you! It means a lot to me that you would all take the time to do so. It also improves my chances of becoming better known out there in the millions of books available to be read by everyone. There is such a pile to be read, isn't there!?! So thank you for any help I've received! :)
So get ready all you romantics out there for a new adventure with me as I we move ahead into Pirate Bride -- Book Two in The Huntington Saga series novels. :)
Happy Reading everyone!
I've had a lot of activity on my website since I left on vacation. I'm back now and am trying to catch up. :)
Volume Three is still on schedule to be released at the end of this month. I have had some wonderful feedback that I've added to the 'Comments' page. I really, truly enjoy reading your comments. Your comments encourage me that I do have a following out there. Without this feedback, and, of course, the sales (Holy Cow!), I would wonder about my ability at all. I think that the sales alone have encouraged me; however, the comments are a treasure trove! So thanks! :)
I have to say that I've had one bad review on Amazon.co.uk, but I'm getting over it. I knew, going into this that I could not, and would not, please everyone. But I will continue to write what I love to read most. I always try to learn something from reviews though, and all I can say is, I need to stop being quite so wordy. Also, I don't think the person really understood that I split the book into volumes for a reason (one of her issues). Even though I have tried to end each volume well, the TRUE ending for The Governess will not happen until the end of Volume Three. Honestly, it even continues into Book Two and Book Four since this is a Saga. That's what sagas are, aren't they? But for those of you who like my style, I do pray for continued support. It means the world to me.
Thanks for adding to my success, everyone! I truly appreciate it. I wish you all the success that you desire, as well. :)
All my best,
I've been so happy this month having shared The Governess with you all, and seeing that it has been received so well. It's been such a scary thing for me to do. I truly didn't know if I could do it. I've said before that writing and then sharing it, for me, is like dancing naked in the street and asking people to watch. Not very comfortable. I feel that naked! Yikes! (And not a pretty sight...) But I'm so grateful that you have received it so well. Thank you!
Here are some of the comments that I have received from readers so far:
love! love! love!, June 10, 2013
The Governess, June 9, 2013
Captivating, June 11, 2013
Feedback can be so inspiring to an author simply because we then know that what we are writing makes sense, let alone may have some worth. So thank you! I've just counted up all the sales of my book that I can find to count and came up with a grand total of 1,149 books in one month! Wow! Now I only wish that I had been able to publish sooner! I honestly don't know if this number is a good one for a beginner author, however, I'm thrilled! Haven't seen a penny yet, but I'm told to that next month is the month. :)
Thank you, everyone, for believing in me.
