New candidates….

We’ve searched high and low for candidates for our Christian list, an I admit that sometimes I sit here scratching my head thinking about who to feature, but not today!

Whadya’ think ladies?? 😉

Thank you for the suggestions girls! 😉

Also, just for some housekeeping purposes, there is something I’d like to discuss with you. Due to your wonderful support my blog has grown beautifully. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your support, it’s immeasurable really. The downside of the growth is of course time, and as I love chatting to you, and getting your feedback, I refuse to cut back on my time replying to your gracious responses. That only leaves me my time blogging the daily posts. In an effort to save time, and my personal sanity, I would like to cut back on my daily posts. These are just the fun, and sometimes frivolous posts, I post every day, like the one above. This will not influence the once a week posting of Meander. I will also retain the book club and the Wednesday teaser, and if something big happens in our FSOG world, I’ll almost certainly post it at random. I know you’ll understand, I’m tying myself in knots to keep up and feel bad failing.

Monique xx

    I like the top one, Richard Armitage he does look a bit of alright to me. No problems about the daily posts Monique, we do realise how busy you must be and appreciate the writing/work you do for us. There does come a time when you cannot burn the candle at both ends, so take care, take it easier on yourself – and thank you.

    Oh happy day, Monique to find Richard Armitage in my inbox! He has been my fantasy Dom since long before FSOG. I’m one of those mothers (and there are many of us) who watched Robin Hood on Saturday evenings with their kids, not for the drama but in order to sigh over Richard smouldering in black leather as the villain. I know many people will say he’s too old but who cares?


  3. Janien Meissner says:

    O,Monique, don’t feel bad! You just spoiled us by posting something every day. As long as you keep on writing it is okay with me. As for the new candidates…….mmmmm, no, nice but no Christian! Perhaps Beto would do as Gideon. I do hope they hurry with the filmthing! The script must be ready sometime soon! The poor man who is going to play Christian will have a totally different live from now on. Let’s hope he is single! Lol! Xxxx Janien


  4. Katherine says:

    Oh No!
    None of these 2 – who even are they?!
    The first one would completely turn me off he is a boke and the second one is far too old!
    Sorry, couldn’t see it with any of them

    nooo anpother book group I am on are Richard Armitage have been pushing for him for another role and – no comment – I reserve my comment – 😦 grumpy!
    Still see Matt Bomer ( or after seeing True Blood last night Eric Skarsgaard altho would think of him as in TB ) in the role guess cos there are so many trailers out there with he and Alex B in them .

    As for cutting back you need to be able to have a balance in your life and as much as we love interacting with you on FB blogs etc know it must be hard and to also take the time and inspiration with your story which is SO GOOD must be tiring !. We would hate for you to have burn out you are too precious (lol) “`


  7. Linda says:

    Love Beto! He would be a great Gideon too!


  8. Fiona Fraser says:

    Hi Monique, As much as I can’t wait for your weekly chapters (will you still be doing these????), you have to commit time to do your own thing otherwise you will be chained to the mean machine always!! I hope you find your balance! 🙂 I don’t think any of the gorgeous hunks pictured look like ‘Christian’ (my vote is still for ‘Matt Bomer’) but definitely Beto would be my pick for ‘Gideon’. Looking forward to the next chapter. Please take care of yourself. Loads of love xx


    • Monique Lain says:

      Hi Fiona, yes, as long as I can manage I would like to continue the weekly updates of the story, it’s just the smaller daily posts that I will cut back on. I’m with you, Beto would make a good GC.


  9. Kym Thomas says:

    Totally understand and with the promise of the meander and of course your beautiful witty amazing writing, who could not understand, Yes you do need to have a balance that is right for you, as Im 100% Sure we will all keep supporting your work undoubtably. Look forward to your next Chapter ❤


  10. Monica says:

    Hi, Monique. Missed you so much so glad you’re back, safe and sound. Please don’t worry about posting daily we all know you work really hard and your work is very important. Hell, if I find something funny or worth posting I’ll post it to you daily. Love you bunch.


  11. jean says:

    Richard….NO WAY…not even close.

    Beto…much sexier…wrong coloring.


  12. Andrea says:

    totally get it…you are keeping the 3 major posts I love so no worries from this chic 🙂 You do get to have a life too LOL


  13. Carmela (marpuri fanfiction) says:

    Did you see my posts on the fb group about aaron O’connell? He’s my new favourite. Not sure if you’ve presented him as a candidate yet? He’s not only incredibly good looking , but he also plays piano and sings, so he’s perfect for the roll as Christian!


    • Monique Lain says:

      Oh my! I’ll have to get onto that Carmela, thank you! No I’ve not been on our FB page, black hole that steals my time that place… 😉 Though I did make a turn there today, posted about a ghost… check it out!


  14. Atterbury says:

    Monique, I think it’s going to be a mind movie not a film at this point…
    Time management? Lady you are your own worst enemy! Your passion in all things FSOG and literature would have to catch up to you eventually. We love you and all you have shared with us but the key word here is YOU! Do what you need to do! We’ll take you any way we can get you!!! Love you! Liz


  15. Sue says:

    Monique, please don’t feel bad. I really don’t know how you manage to do half of what you do. Hope the course went well last week. Knowing you I’m sure you’re going to make up for your absence with a humdinger of an instalment this weekend. Lots of love, Sue x x


  16. tracy says:

    Totally get it….I always wondered how you have time to post so often as I find it hard sometimes to post simple comments. I don’t care how often you post chapters, weekly?…bi weekly?…as long as they keeping coming…;) I love the teasers too, but would be satisfied with chapters. I hope the book club stays…I have found some of my favorite stories there. I find I connect with you and your fans (on good reads) more than I do with my own friends…lol! Many of them have become top shelf rereads. Btw, since yesterday’s book club, I read Leave Me Breathless. Loved it!!! I hope Cherrie Lynn continues their story.


    • tracy says:

      just to clarify, by bi-weekly, I am referring to every other week, not twice a week…lol after I typed it I forgot what the hell bi-weekly meant! ha ha…I’m not that greedy 😉 I appreciate that you write for us and I’ll take it any way you give it to us 🙂


    • Monique Lain says:

      Yep, book club and teasers stay… I don’t think I could live without torturing you… 😉 I love Cherrie Lynn and I agree with you Tracy, I have that same feeling of connectedness with you guys! 😉


  17. Katherine says:

    Hi Monique just got reading this post only glanced at the pictures in work on my phone just do what you can we all have work and family and obviously they come first we will be here whenever you have time to post anything xxx


  18. Roslyn says:

    You are amazing, giving every week. I do understand, it is hard not only to write a story and get back to your readers. You are doing a lot being a mom, working, home, marriage, book club and more. I can only imagine. I know it is a struggle. Just remember, you do have loyal reader’s and we are happy to have you write stories for us. Please, by all means, do what is necessary to keep your sanity. Just know, your are a brilliant writer and we are here, Thank you for you time.


  19. CMS says:

    Don’t tie yourself in knots Monique :-). You posts are awesome and we will wait with baited breath no matter when you post them. Look after you


  20. josy83 says:

    Hey Monique, I’ve always wondered how you could post and write so often. I haven’t even been able to read the last two chapters of Meander (shame on me – but sometimes life just sucks… I promise to do better, though !)
    By the way, the German WWW and a few English site have announced that Alex Pettyfer is confirmed to be Christian. I don’t know how true this information is but I think they could find someone better.


    • Monique Lain says:

      LOL! They are here, waiting patiently for you, not going anywhere… It’s the second time I hear that rumour but I’ve yet to conform it as certain. Thank you or letting me know, I’ll post it on the blog.


  21. Mrs. G says:

    No worries, Monique! Take the time you need and we’ll be here waiting. Mwah!
