For the latest teasers, updates, and news on upcoming stories follow or like my author page below! Thank you for your support. It truly means a lot to me!
Due to lack of interest, I will not be holding any votes for Galway Girls. I will continue the story like usual. I truly hope I didn’t upset anyone by having the vote for the necklace Chibs gives Abel. I only did that to get my readers more involved as I’m a firm believer in keeping some sort of communication. But I would much rather you all be surprised if that’s what you all prefer.
Once again my apologies,
(I won’t make anymore posts until the actual update)
I’ve been informed that it sounds as if I’m trying to FORCE my readers into liking my upcoming chapter, given my last post/blog. Um no, I’m sorry if anyone misunderstood what my intentions were. I meant the likes and comments to THAT particular post would be tallied for those that wanted the voting option. It wouldn’t make sense if I counted up the likes to the chapter after I posted – as my deciding factor. Not when I need to know BEFORE I even post the chapter. I mean no disrespect by saying that but felt a little disrespected that anyone would accuse me of such a thing. If you didn’t want the voting option, then simply say so or simply ignore the post altogether — no need to get ugly and accuse someone of something before questioning them about the issue first.
I suppose you could say this is another vote…
This vote would be for the current chapter I’m working on. All I need is a simple like. That like will let you decide certain things such as decorations, how the new bar will look, and what gifts Aislinn Telford receives. If you want to be surprised instead let me know. However, my choice will depend on how many likes (or lack of) or comments I receive. If enough interest is shown, I will go for the voting option. If not, I’ll surprise everyone instead.
Thank you for your time,
I posted this to my FB author page but felt the need to put it here as well.
I just had to get this out,
When a story gives you that giddy feeling every time you’re knee-deep in it, keep going. Despite the lack of interest or reviews, keep going. I say this because Galway Girls is probably one of my least reviewed stories, but the story itself gives me joy. Joy, I can’t even begin to express. I’m sixteen pages into my current chapter, and my heart is racing with literal happiness. Not that I haven’t had that with most of my stories, I most certainly have. There are moments where I shock myself with the things I come up with then, of course, there are times where I absolutely HATE what I’ve written because I felt it wasn’t done to it’s greatest potential. I may sound like an emotional mess right now because I am. I have a handful of stories that hit me right in the feels and mean that much to me. Galway is most certainly top of my list, and that’s what keeps me going. When a story can make you laugh, cry, furious but beg for more AS THE WRITER, you know deep in your heart you’re doing something right.
Don’t give up hope.
Whatever you do, no matter how unappreciated you may feel at times, don’t give up. The one thing WE ALL have to remember… We do these things just as much for ourselves as we do for others. I’m in tears damn near because of how proud I am. Believe me when I say that’s a very rare feeling for me “proud of myself”. I’ve hardly had the option to say or feel that way. Often enough, I feel like a failure that’s let many down. I know I did when I dropped Bella as an MC, but I’m happier for it and freer – creative wise. I can do so much more with my stories and writing Galway Girls made me realize just how ready I am to start original work.
I have sooo many ideas, and I’ve been writing original work since I was about thirteen to fourteen years old. I have at least twelve handwritten stories as I began writing before we even had internet or means of typing it out and I didn’t have access to a typewriter at the time. I’m anxious (but a little scared too lol) to get to those. I want to see what I can do with them, after all these years and with more knowledge on my side.
Anyhow, I had to share my excitement with you all. I had a complete squeal moment and ugh. I can’t wait to see how this story turns out in its whole. But on that same note, I’m sad it’s coming to an end. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
I cannot thank Robin enough for giving me the idea and convincing me to write this. So, readers of Galway Girls, you have her to thank. I wouldn’t have the confidence to write something that wasn’t a crossover and Bella without that nudge of hers. Robin knew I wanted to get away from Bella, for personal, and many other reasons. I expressed this time and time again. She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, and that’s why this story exists. It wouldn’t without her – my sister from another mister.
Trust me when I say she doesn’t have it easy keeping me in line and going.
Love to all and back to work I go,
Thank you for your votes. I have tallied everything up from FB, and on here. I only counted ONE vote per person. That was fair. So, if you voted on all three of my posts, I only counted you the one time.
Alright, drum roll, please 😉
D – came in last with four votes
C – came in third with five votes
B – came in second with eight votes
A – came in FIRST with fourteen votes
So, our winner is!!!!
Since there was some love on B and a few comments on how unique it was… I might have plans for that necklace as well. We shall see. 😉
Thank you for your votes.
I plan on doing more with you guys like this btw. So, I hope that is okay. That includes my original work. I like being in contact with my readers and getting everyone’s input. That and it was a bit of fun. Wish I had done more things like that in the past. But lesson learned, and now we can move on and have more involvement!
Thanks again, everyone. Your time and support mean the world to me.
It’s not too late to vote. You’ve got one more day to comment on what necklace you want Chibs to give Abel. It’s taking me a bit to wrap this chapter up, but I am getting there.
Thank you everyone,
