A few back I published a few chapters of The Circle of Confusion series and put a survey at the end of the book. I wanted to get your feedback about whether you wanted the story in short chapters or a long book, and the long book won. I really appreciate everyone who took the time to take the survey. You input is very important to me.
Since the majority of the people who took the survey said they would rather have a long book than short chapters, that's they way I'm going to continue with the story. I'm working on a different story right now, but The Circle of Confusion is next.
Some of you may be wondering why I've titled this story The Circle of Confusion. Well, to be honest, it worked at the time and I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. But, my original thinking was that the story would deal with all the confusion Jamie and P. J. would face in their new life. Anyone who has moved away from home and started out on their own knows how scary and confusing being faced with real life situations can be. Jamie and P. J. are going to meet new people and have new experiences that will make them question everything.
SPOILER ALERT: Regardless of what I may put them through, I will keep them together. It's my firm believe that LGBT youth need to know that they can meet their soulmate at a young age and be together forever.

For those of you who haven't had a chance to read Suddenly, I hope you will check it out. For those of you who read it previously, I hope you will take advantage of it being available through Amazon Unlimited and check it out again. I'd love to hear how I did with fixing the problems.
The print version will be available by June 10, 2016 and I will be writing the series, The Circle of Confusion, telling about Jamie and P. J.'s life in college. I've been torn about how to write this series and I will be taking ideas from some of the stories on this blog. If the writing Gods are willing I'm hoping to start out by releasing an episode every two weeks starting on June 10th to coincide with the print release. I'm not going to promise that the episodes will come out every two weeks, at least not this summer. I will have grandkids just about every day so it's going to be a little crazy at my house.
I love hearing from fans and I hope you will write me and let me know what you think about Suddenly and the series, The Circle of Confusion. Write me at email@example.com. I always respond to letters from fans. Peace and love to you all. M. E.

I would be focused on getting Suddenly reworked right now, but I'm in the process of finishing my new adult novel, Standing Her Ground. This is a story about a young lesbian mother who stands up to her parents and their church when they try to take her son from her. This is not a romance, but it has an important message about not letting someone push you around. It has a little bit of sex ( of course) and I think a lot of young women will relate to Jodi Nelson's (the main character) story.
Also, I'm editing the first part of The Circle of Confusion. I've decided to publish this in shorts from different characters point of view. The first story will be told from P. J.'s point of view and start at the beginning of the first semester of college. Please keep an eye out for this story. I think fans of Suddenly are going to love following P. J. and Jamie's story through college.

I'm going over some of the parts of Suddenly that I'd gone over in an earlier edit and making note of some of my favorite scenes, including this one:

I wanted to share this paragraph that comes from one of my favorite scenes in the book. It's during Homecoming Week, and Jamie dresses up as Amy Lee from Evanescence and this is P. J.'s reaction to seeing her.
“Nice,” she said. Her eyes raked over my whole body, “Very nice. Amy Lee, right?”
“Yes,” I laughed. “I must have really done a good job. You both guessed right away who I was supposed to be.”
“It’s the corset,” she said, looking at my boobs that the corset pushed up. Her eyes had a new look in them. It was more than appreciation. She met my eyes briefly and I felt like I’d just been touched by a flame.
I've been reading my first posts on this blog about Jamie and P. J.'s continuing story, and it has been almost as fun as reading Suddenly again has. Even thought the blog originally started the summer before their sophomore year of college, I still feel like I need to go all the way back to their first year of college and tell the story from there. I've had some ideas for twists that will hopefully have readers on the edge of their seats.
This project has been on the back burner for a while because Kayla and Lori's characters were not developing the way I wanted them to. I'm reworking those ideas. I would love to hear what you all think about the characters as they appear in this blog and what you would like to see happen in Jamie and P. J.'s lives.
