Honored and Grateful

Noah and Cooper have been part of my life for quite awhile. I fell in love with them when they first popped into my head as these two ten-year-old boys who were best friends. Who always meant more to each other than anyone else in their lives. 

I am sure all authors fall in love with our characters right from the start but as much as we love them, we never know if other people will love them too. If readers will see everything in them that we do. On the one hand, it's our job as writers to try and show you how special our characters are and their story is but of course there is no guarantee. We all have different tastes, which is totally a good thing. 

Anyway, I'll get to the point and stop rambling. 

When I published COLLIDE, I just wanted to get Noah and Cooper's story into the world. Wanted to hopefully share those special guys with a few readers. I wasn't sure how that go, if anyone would be interested in them or not. I am honored by the response COLLIDE has gotten. 

It's very surreal to look at Amazon and see COLLIDE sitting at number two on the gay romance list, as well as Kindle books gay fiction, and Kindle gay romance. It's amazing to think of the boys who I love so much being in the hands of so many readers. 

I want to thank you guys for giving COLLIDE a try. Thanks for giving a new author a try and thanks for letting my boys into your lives. I hope you enjoy their story. I hope I did them justice.
