Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
Firstly, let me thank you for your kind words and good wishes. I really am sorry if the whole END came as a shock, but the story was always meant to end there. The classic, climactic ending was something that I decided upon from very early on in the story so, in my view, it was anything but blunt. I think the fact that I wrote sequel short stories to the main story BEFORE it ended came back to bite me in the hiney; please remember that both “Christmas” and “Valentine’s Meander” are follow-on stories to main Meander.
Regarding the possibility of a book two in Meander, the answer to that is no. Only because, over the last two years, I’ve given you a total of more than six books – and that’s excluding the one-shots. Yes, it’s hard to believe that 300,000 words amounts to six books, but despite not dividing them into actual books, according to the industry standard in this genre, that’s basically how it would have been published – give or take a book or two 😉
I would also like to address the comments about having left loose ends. If there are any I would happily tie them for you, but as far as I’m concerned, all the dangly bits are neatly tied into the bow of the end: Kate is pregnant, Mia is finally back with Ethan, Chris will bear the Grey name as José is out of the picture (Go, Ana!), and (from “Valentine’s Meander”) we know that Ana is expecting a little girl, plus the house on the sound is renovated, ready for the sparkling future we all know our favorite couple deserves. The fact that you might have wanted the details of those threads does not translate to loose ends. The happy ever after is implied, BUT, I really hate that some of you have come away feeling unhappy (cheated – I think was the word used) with how the end unfolded, so I will be taking some steps to turn those frowns upside down. You’ll have to watch this space…. 😉
Also, I would REALLY love some more reviews on Chapter 69. Those two little words at the very end completely overshadowed the chapter itself. If it stood on its own, how did you feel about the content?
This week I read:
Seven Day Loan by Tiffany Reisz was another awesome read from this brilliant writer. The BDSM theme is as always much harder than in FSOG but damn, the woman has a way of developing characters that’s incredibly impressive. Sweet Temptations by Maya Banks was a great action/steamy read, but be warned, if multiple partner scenes are not your thing then this is not the book for you.
Currently I’m reading:
Submit To Desire by Tiffany Reisz. This is another novella in the Original Sinners series.
On My shelf I have:
What happened in Vegas by Sylvia Day
I’ve also updated the Spanish translation of Meander. Thank you Kereny for chapter 27 😉
Then, it seems that I’ve lost my Portuguese translators along the way. If you know of anyone willing to take on this love job; translating the rest of the chapters into Portuguese, that would just be awesome!
Lastly, one of the readers shared this – for those of you interested in some Gandy candy….
I don’t know the book or the author, its only for the David fans’s viewing pleasure 😉
Happy reading, ladies!
