A few words about my books
Hi everyone! Today is the first day of my Blog Tour. I’m very excited and a little worried:) It’s actually the first time I’m doing a Book Tour and frankly, I thought I would never be able to do it on my own! But thank God, I have so many good friends and readers who helped me find the bloggers and schedule the stops my books will have during the next 25 days. I hope you will enjoy following the Tour as much I enjoyed writing the books of the Love Lines series that this event is dedicated to. For now the series has three books, including a short story named From Scratch that was published last week. There will be three more books about Eileen and Christian, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy their adventures and love:) I have already started writing the next book of the series and I will announce its title and the description very soon!
So Love Lines was my debut fantasy novel and even now I can’t believe it’s published:) No matter how many problems I faced to get it published, I love this story and it will always take a very special place in my heart.
On the one hand, working on Songs of the Wind was much easier, because it was my second book and I tried to take into consideration all the mistakes I’d made writing LL and make this new book even better than the first one:) It was also the first time I let the world read my poems! They have become an essential part of the story and they reflect those things I couldn’t describe using simple sentences.
On the other hand, Songs of the wind was a very hard book to write, because it was filled with so many different emotions I couldn’t but feel myself. I should also confess that I still haven’t found time to sit and read my books without thinking about making more changes:) But I guess I will never be able to stop criticizing my works, no matter how many good reviews I receive. The only thing I know for sure is that I will keep doing my best to write more good books:)
From Scratch was another challenge for me. Starting Love Lines I didn’t know I would write this separate story. But some time later I realized there were things I wanted Evan to say from his own POV. From Scratch turned out to be a short story about his failed romance with Tara. It doesn’t mean however that they will never find their happiness. I promise they will! With or without each other. But you will have to read the whole LL series to find it out:) Besides, I’m not ready to let Evan go, so be sure he will stay with us till the end:) And I already know I will miss him a lot when the series is over!:)
I’m more than happy to admit that the list of my Romanian readers is growing every day! Thanks to Amina Black and other bloggers, spreading the news about my works, I’ve found many friends and fans in Romania. And I was so happy to receive a handmade notebook from Amina, inspired by my Love Lines novel! It was one of the best Christmas presents I got this (or shall I say LAST:)) year! Well, anyway I liked it a lot and I hope one day I will be able to meet Amina and other Romanian readers in reality:) Wish you all a great day, follow the Tour and enjoy reading my books!
