Okay, so usually I don’t come on here and address things that are bothering me. Im usually very laid back and don’t allow what people say to bother me, but the hate mail about Tangled in the Laces is getting to be a bit much. There is a difference between saying, ‘OMG I LOVE THE PREQUEL AND I WANT MORE! I DONT KNOW IF I CAN WAIT TILL 2015 FOR THE BOOK!’ and then “YOU ARE SUCH A BITCH FOR MAKING US WAIT! DONT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO GIVE US THIS LIKE YESTERDAY. ITS NOT FAIR AND YOU STOLE MY MONEY CA– USE I ONLY BOUGHT THAT BOOK TO READ YOUR PART! YOU HAVE JUST LOST A FAN’ <~ So first, let me address that I am not stealing your money, this is going to the Hockey Fights Cancer foundation. Another thing, I have stressed and stressed, that this is not a full novel. It is a prequel. I had 25k words to work with, this is what you got. I am super proud of this prequel and to be honest I really don't understand the hate mail. It's kinda crazy. I'm not going to write cookie cutter romances. I will write stuff that makes you cringe, that breaks your heart and then put a smile on your face because thats life. Life isn't sunshines and rainbows all the darn time and I take pride in the fact that I try to make my books as real as possible. When I said the expect release date was 2015, it was a ball park estimate to give me time to write it. Thankfully, I'm writing quickly and plan to start Laces and Lace as soon as I'm done with Rush of Love or Jude or whatever I'm calling it. I work very hard and take pride in everything I write. It comes from my heart and while I take critique as a way to grow, there is a line between bashing me and critiquing me. I get that you want the book guys, I do and I want nothing more than to give it to y'all, you know that, but please, lets cool it with the hate mail.
Let me just say…

Keep up the good work. Never mind what other people say. Love your books can’t wait till Breaking Away is here.
Shame on them! Creating takes time as does most things that are worth it. We are fans BECA– USE of the unique, talented way you write. We are fans of yours because of the ice hockey, the realistic way you bring these men and women to life.
You do your thing. Hockey fights cancer is a precious event that is made for people like me. I faced this god awful illness and EVERYTHING it brought. I commend you. Hockey was my escape through it all.
Shame on others who can’t see the bigger picture.
There is absolutely no reason for anyone to send such nasty comments. It has been out out there from the get go that this is a prequel and there will be a story to follow. For those “Real” fans the obvious next book in the storyline is Claire’s story. I am sorry that these inconsiderate individuals have been so nasty but like they say you can’t please everyone! Your books are awesome and those people who complain aren’t true fans…keep up the great work and don’t let the idiots get you down!
I just read your response to whatever was posted previously. Way to go girl! I agree with you 100%! It is not appropriate to bash others. Thanks for all your hardwork!!! I love the Assasins Series. You have made me into a hockey lover and now my family is one too. I haven’t read your other work yet, but hope to soon. Take care and I hope you have a fun spring and summer.
If these “fans” were truly your fans they wouldn’t be so nasty and aggressive. Your real fans will wait, with bated and anticipated breath but we’ll wait;)
