Letter "Y" - You and Me

So readers, we are in the same position.  Abby and Basil are at a crossroads.  Father Quanon is in serious trouble.  Drakar looks to be the victor.

What will happen?  You don't know...and until I finish the first draft that I'm starting, I don't know.

Well, the answer to a lot of your questions will be answered - okay, so my hope, prayer, desire and goal is that they will be answered in Abby and Basil's NEVERLOVE.  This story has actually taken me by surprise.  YOU all have taken me by surprise.  Your interest, your reactions, your comments touched my heart.  I never told anyone, but a few times I actually just smiled and shed a few tears.  Although I haven't published this novel as of yet, I can truly see the soulful boon from putting out a story readers WANT to read.

Because of your interest and investment in these characters, I will keep you all posted on the step by step process with NEVERLOVE.  I've got a few stories I've considered self-publishing.  This story may actually need to be self-published.  It would allow me to put this story out to you faster, but...if I do this, please know that this won't be done lightly.  I will definitely look to a few eyes to beta read, an editor to help make sure I can put out a very good product and even looking to a cover designer to do something simple but eye-catching for this.  The cover and editing may be the most costly items but well worth it to get this story out the right way.

YOU - readers, lovers of words, and seeing the impossible made possible.  NEVERLOVE is for YOU :-)

I'd love to beta for you when the time comes and you're more than welcome to stop by my blog when you're ready to start promoting this. I'm so excited for you Angela! Wishing you all the best as you continue to explore and write this story.

I really did enjoy this, Angela, it was a fun to come by every day (nearly) to see what happened next. I will definitely buy your book to find out what happens:)

Shelley Munro said...

You've certainly kept us on the edge of our seats this month! It was fun seeing what you would come up with next :)

Y-you mean we're not going to find out what happens next--at least, not yet? :O Way to keep up us in suspense! But I have enjoyed these snippets of NEVERLOVE! Best of luck finishing it, so we can find out what happens!

There are a lot of wonderful You's on the internet, in blogger land.

Leslie Rose said...

Dibs on being part of the NEVERLOVE blog tour!

Nicole said...

I think Abby and Basil will lead the way in letting you know what will happen next, so you can put it all down on paper (or computer) for Neverlove. If you want a video trailer for it when it's done, holler my way.

Cheers to you for keeping readers on the edge of their seeds as this story has progressed from the beginning of April 'til now!

I can't believe we're nearing the end of yet another A to Z Challenge. It's been quite a ride :)

Your posts have been a fun read, like the way you kept us on the edge.

Kelley Lynn said...

Can't wait! Consider me a stop on your bloghop if you need it :)

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Amy!!

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Maria. Not having a whole story plotted out when I started the challenge kept me on my toes as well. Especially since things went a whole new direction as I followed the characters.

Angela Brown said...

That is so much awesomesauce. I'll certainly reach out when i get to that point. Thank you!!!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Great!

Susan Oloier said...

Angela,
I secretely hoped this would be the case. I had no idea how you could possible wrap up this story by the end of the challenge. I would definitely be a reader/buyer of your book. You should definitely self-publish. I absolutely love the Indie publishing journey!!
I am here for any promotional things you need, too.

M Pax said...

Keep it going, Angela. You're doing a fantastic job. And I want to read the rest of the story one of these days.
