But what I didn't know was how overwhelming it would be to have people read my words and internalize them to the point of messaging me and telling me how much they connected with my characters.
This story was so surreal, It got me in the heart. These types of hurt follow many people, some have lived it, some are living it right now and others have lived it and got out and survived. Became stronger, refuse to live in fear and humiliation any longer.
I have to say I was excited to see Noah knocking down Maddie's walls, I wish Nat could have found peace. I think Jason did what he had to do.
Love, need, want, anger, sadness, fear, trauma. FREEDOM. It's all here
I couldn't have imagined how it would feel to read reviews that cut right to the heart of what both of my stories were about.
Falling for Home by Jody Holford is a sweet, heart-warming and entertaining love story, that deals with Asperger’s Syndrome, agoraphobia, and a woman that moves a lot and doesn’t stay for long. Ms. Holford is a new author to me but when I snuggled in on a snowy Thursday…and then Friday night to read, I found that I was looking forward to the next page. I was waiting to find out if Alex was going to pursue Lucy, if Lucy was going to confront her family…and if the town of Angel Lake was going to find out who was vandalizing their buildings.
It’s a real pleasure to read a story that leaves you with a warm fuzzy feeling, that solves the mysteries it’s set up, and that recognizes sometimes life does work out for the best. FALLING FOR HOME is what it says it is: a fun, warm and cozy romance. It would make a great read for a cold winter night, or a warm day on the beach.
it is your fault I am tired today. Yes, yours. You had given me PDF's of Falling for Home and Damage so last night I decided to read one. After I finished Damage, I thought I would just read a few pages of Falling and go to bed. I ended up reading both and staying up until this morning at 6 AM. I honestly hadn't read all night for a long, long time.
What I also didn't know would happen was that people would like the stories so much there would be FAN MADE teasers and images. Because you have to have FANS for that. Readers who loved your words enough to capture a moment for you.
Thank you to all of the incredibly supportive people that helped with the Falling for Home release, the Jaded Love Blog Tour, and those that are rallying for Damaged, which comes out this month. As you know, if you've read any of my blogs or acknowledgements, I hate listing people because I might miss someone who matters. But there are a few people who have gone out of their way to make me feel like a very real author (and each of them hate when I describe it like that, but it's how it feels. Like, hey, I did it. I'm for real now.)
Come back later this month because I'll be doing a special giveaway with the jewelry designer who inspired Maddi's profession in this book.
