Picasso I am not, in fact I’m pretty useless at most things, except telling stories! And I wouldn’t be telling them without YOU guys. So this is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to those lovely, supportive people who have Liked, Shared and commented on my FB, Twitter and Google pages and at Amazon.
Chris and I (for those who don’t know, Chris is the techie/artistic half) have recently published a new line of romances to balance the gritty East End sagas. They could have dive-bombed, for these countryside romances are quite the opposite material to my usual books. Instead, you have all been there with us every bit of the way, giving reviews and subscribing to the newsletter and just generally taking an interest. You’ve blown us away with your patience and encouragement.
I’ve so much admiration for you; mums and dads with young families to rear, enormous challenges at work and in the home, ailments and health predicaments, bereavements and losses that tear at our hearts. But we meet in this amazing community of on-liners and discover we’re all human beings, with the same things happening to us, striving for the best for ourselves and our families. So where do we escape for relief? Often to a story, to a book, where we can relate to others in the same or similar situation.
I owe so much to the authors of some of the books I’ve read - and I would like to give back. I try to, in each of the stories I make. They are only simple tales, but they are created for YOU, in the hope that perhaps they can offer a quiet space where it’s most needed in your busy lives.
So it really is a Love and Thanks from Carol. Whether you’re reading one of my sagas or countryside romances, I hope it gives you what you are looking for.
Have a wonderful summer! I hope some gorgeous books, uplifting movies, trips to the theatre, holidays, inspirational happenings, family get-togethers, seeing good friends and enjoying the part we play in this am-a-zing universe — all this fills your lives and rewards you for the good people you are.
Big hugs as always, from Carol x
