This is just a quick post to reach out to my readers of the Buddha’s Bone and to those who have kindly left reviews. You have made my day, week, month and year!

I’m thrilled that you have taken the time to read my book and leave your thoughts. Believe me that for an Indie author, it means the world to me. Reviews help my book gain visibility; I can’t put a number on how many literary fiction books there are on Amazon, so you’ve helped my novel to stand out just that little bit more.

I’m thankful to have you along for my writing journey; it sounds cheesy, but you’re the reason I write. The saying for authors is that a writer writes the first draft for themselves, but the finished product is for an audience. It’s true of my books. I write with you, my readers, in mind. A story in my head is no good to anyone. I write so that I can share my words with you.

I’m delighted that you find my main character Kimberly likeable and relatable and champion her journey as she grows. I love hearing how you despise the antagonists in my story. Having you along on my own author journey has motivated me to keep writing more.

That’s all I wanted to say. Just to get in touch with you; as most of you are new readers of my writing somewhere out there, in the wide world, I wanted to say thank you to you. I hope you like The Buddha’s Bone and stay with me for my next novel due to be released in autumn 2022.
