I’ve thought a lot about whether to write a sequel to Love Left Behind and/or Fated. It was a hard decision but I’ve finally decided that although I love the characters in each of these books, I won’t be continuing their stories. I was on the fence about it for a while but I believe that’s the best decision.
I wrote each book with the intention of it being a stand-alone novel, and while I could easily stretch out their stories, I believe everything that needed to be told was already done so in those books. I don’t want to do them a disservice (because of course in my mind they’re not fictional ) and I especially don’t want to do my readers a disservice by writing a book that my heart isn’t wholly into 100%. I’ve always loved books that had an ending that gave a feeling that the characters were off living their lives beyond the confines of the pages, and this is how I feel I left Emma/Jackson and Lauren/Caden in their stories.
Of course I hate disappointing my readers and I know some of you really really really wanted a sequel, but I promise the main reason I’m not writing one is because I want to give you the best reading experience possible, and I believe not writing a sequel is the best decision.
The good news is that I’ve started a new contemporary romance novel that I hope you’ll love just as much. It’s in its infancy stages and I’ll update when I have a better idea of when it’ll be released.
Thanks to everyone for their patience while I waffled on my decision. Hope everyone is doing well!
