I keep every letter/email I receive from people who have read my books and when the writing gets tough and I want to give up I simply read through these letters to get the encouragement to carry on. Thank you to every one of you who has taken the time to write and tell me what my books meant to you. You have no idea how much I appreciate your kind words.
Here’s one from this week, about my book Dancing Naked which is one of my older titles.
“Thank you so much for your gorgeous novel “Dancing Naked” and giving me the chance to share Kia’s and Justin’s respective journeys. Honestly, I had many time when I felt desperate to give each of them a hug according to the struggles they were working through…
No idea if I will ever have enough anything to strip and dance as suggested by your story’s title but it has definitely helped me make some steps toward journeying through life and I’m insanely grateful for the effect it’s had on my life, showing me I’m not alone and giving me ideas about where I can turn for a spiritual home.”
Insanely grateful? That warms my heart. And another one, from a few weeks ago.
“I just finished dancing naked it is one of my favourite books now! I don’t like to read but that book just made me want to read more and more. I never wanted to stop. It stood out for me a lot and I am looking forward to reading more of our books!
Thank you, dear readers, for your notes of encouragement. I am “insanely grateful” to each of you!
