Many of you have downloaded and read, The Girl NextDoor. I know, it has some parts that make you cry, but those are happy tears, yes? Good stories should evoke emotions as well as entertain. If Hallmark ever did movies with same-sex lovers, this would be one hell of a movie!
If I told the absolute truth, which I always try to do, some parts of this book still cause tears to mess up my vision, my nose to run, and my cheeks to become damp. And I wrote the story!
The Girl Nextdoor is a rags to riches tale, which is uplifting in many ways. It is also slightly naughty so Hallmark would probably have to delete some of that, which would be a shame.
I love the story, and telling about the struggles with Anorexia in a story format is unique, thanks for pointing that out. Yes, it is a lesfic, and I am unapologetic about that. When you understand that the differences between the male and female are not that great, then you can get into the story. I happen to believe that love is magnificent wherever you find it. As long as love is not used as a weapon, to me, it is excellent and worthy of a story.
Since many of you have offered some feedback on the story, I went back and fixed some typo’s, and I embellished the story a little here and there. The more that I write and edit my own work, the better I become. I have this love-hate relationship with Grammarly but if you take the time to learn why it doesn’t like this or that, soon your writing will improve, grammatically speaking.
If you want to re-download The Girl Nextdoor, I think you can from Amazon without cost since you already bought it once. The modifications that I made did not change the story, I just embellished some small portions. Wordsmithing this paragraph or that is what we writers do. Much like we artist do when we look at a painting we did years ago. We want to touch it up.
Thanks for your patronage and your support! I recently released Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs which is a super fun sci-fi that I know you will like. There is lots of science and love and romance. This could be a movie for regular TV. Ghost Signal of Colorado Springs is actually YA! I know, I can write things that kids can read…LOL Lets face it, naughty is fun to write and read but this book is well worth your time, and it is so reasonable in price. $2.99 for damned near 90 thousand words of adventure!
Here is the new teaser for The Girl NextDoor..
Sally’s life was about to change as it was past time for a new “Adventure.” Magic from Scotland would play into this adventure as the Pixies were good at guiding the humans. It was after all their job. In this rags, to riches story, Sally Spent much time alone entertaining herself by mimicking the musicians on TV never dreaming that she would use those talents for her next big adventure.
Finding love in an unusual place for a girl from South Carolina, Sally had no idea that the Pixies were involved. Guiding her and her future friends in a fantastic adventure that included romance, and music while dealing with health issues, created a bond that would withstand the test of time.
The Girl Next Door is an adult read. Thanks so much for your patronage and your support! -TW
