You are all important to me. I’m serious about that. While I don’t write with a particular audience in mind, I do write with gratitude that an audience exists. You are the reason I am able to continue doing what I love.
Because of that, I very much enjoy interaction with you in whatever form it comes. If you send me a request, no matter who you are, I am happy to add you as a friend on my Facebook page. If you prefer Twitter, my account there is open and no follower is ever blocked. If you post a comment to an entry on this blog, I respond to it. My email address is prominently displayed on this blog, and I answer every email I receive. Seriously … I do. It might take a couple days, but I get to them, and am grateful for them.
I also follow my statistics on this blog closely. I know how many of you visit me, and I mostly know how you got here, if you were referred by a link. The other thing I can see, though I don’t have the ability to see who placed it there, are the search engine terms entered into the various search vehicles available to all of us on the web. Those terms show up on my stats page in a daily list that looks something like this:
Today’s search engine terms, when I looked at it as of 6am this morning, included three questions. So, because I don’t have the ability to address the person or people who asked those questions, I’m going to answer them here. : )
1. Is Mercy the last book in Deneane Clark’s Virtue Series? Yes. It is. But I’m working on another series starring the ancestors of the heroes in this series, set in the Middle Ages, which takes place in and around the world of Tournament Knights.
2. When does the next book come out by Deneane Clark? Mercy is slated for a March 2012 release.
3. Will Deneane Clark write more than 4 books in the Virtue Series? No, and it feels a little bittersweet to me. : ) I wrote this series while my children were growing up. My youngest is 19 now, and the Ackerly youngest is getting ready to spread her wings, as well. (I’m a sappy girl, I know. lol)
As always, thank you to everyone who takes time out of their day to read my books, contact me, visit my blog, or interact with me on my various social networks. I really do feel like the most fortunate girl in all the world.
Be beautiful, my friends. : )
