It’s been quite a shock coming back to the ‘real world’ after a really wonderful month in Adelaide, writing, teaching & workshopping, walking, and socialising with SA writers (who were so warm and welcoming as was everyone associated with the May Gibs trust – my gratitude and thanks to you all!) I also caught up with my nephew and his lovely family, which was great. I really enjoyed my time away, although I missed my family and it’s good to see them all again.
I’m now about 40,000 words into Hearts in Chains, finding out about the characters and enjoying the journey. Definitely about love and loss and how the past can influence the present so yes, there’s history – and a mystery to be solved – and that’s why I write stories, because I love this sort of thing!
I’m still receiving heaps of messages regarding the future publication of Books 5 & 6 of the Janna Mysteries; one way or another, I will make sure to make them available for you to read. Some of you have asked about signing a petition. There isn’t one, but you can always write to the publishers (Random House Australia) if you wish to express your opinion. Meanwhile, thank you all for your support for the series. It’s heart-warming to know how much you’ve enjoyed reading about Janna’s journey (and quest)and I hope that you’ve found her struggles to survive, to find love and to make sense of her world an inspiration in your own lives. My thanks too to my ‘regulars’ for keeping in touch and letting me know what you’re thinking. Thanks for hanging in and hanging out with me!
