“Things between them had been frustrating, but if he didn’t sleep with her he didn’t have to worry about the afterwards, the after-words, the explaining that inevitably came when a woman assumed too much . . .”
Just wanted to drop a line to thank everyone for their support of ‘Afterwards’ which has so far been so much more well-received than I could possibly have anticipated, given that its about two secondary characters who were never in the forefront of my mind as possible leads until a reader asked me, ‘Are you going to write a story about Chris?’
As I write this, ‘Afterwards’ has 33 reviews, and all of them are five-stars, and is ranked as follows on Amazon:
Thus far, some of my most challenging work has been in response to reader queries, so I dedicated this book to two of the most voracious readers I know, Deloris and Sabrina who will remain surname-less to protect their anonymity. They don’t just read books, they devour them, and think about them, and talk about them, and remind writers like me that what feels like a solitary pursuit is really not because there are Delorises and Sabrinas out there who care and are watching.
So my after-words–to Deloris, Sabrina and everyone else who’s sent me email about my work, and made comments or asked questions on this blog–are simply this: thank you, you make my work better.
