For those that have read and finished Cut, you will soon realise that yes - there is a sequel that follows Penelopes story. 'Battlescars' is the second book in this series and is now available for preorder! I am hoping to have this book finished and ready for you all by the New Year (so not too long to wait) I will start to bore you all with some teasers and excerpts from Battlescars over the coming weeks. I am really excited to continue this story, as I have so much more story to tell. I love hearing that you have also fallen in love with these characters, and cant wait for you all to discover more!
I have to be honest and say that it is a relief to get back to the writing. Since this has been the first time I have ever published a novel, the journey from draft to published and beyond - is so much more involved than you would have ever imagined. It really does give you an appreciation for authors who go down this path, and even if you don't enjoy someones 'art' - it is still good to be appreciative of the effort that someone has put into it. Of course, not all stories are for everyone, that is why there is so much variety out there to cater for every single person - but the entire process of getting your work in public is a real mammoth task. I always said when I decided to go public with my work that if at least one person actually 'got it'' and enjoyed it - to me, it was a success. So I am so thankful, appreciative and completely overwhelmed that so many of you have really enjoyed this story so far.
So for now, its back to writing! And as always, thank you all for your support along the way!
