Hi Marishka,
Thanks for your question!
I've had a good number of readers ask me about a Winston Brothers series. To gauge interest I started the group pinterest board open to everyone (let me know if you want to join! all are welcome to pin)
At this time I'm leaning toward YES, but have to find a way to fit this new series in my writing schedule. I'll have more information in the September newsletter, potentially an excerpt, and a draft plan.
I hope this helps. <3 Penny (less)

I wrote a blog post a while back on eBook pricing and was surprised that a few readers took my statement “The typical KU reader (I am convinced) will not like the KITC series or the WB series. These books aren’t the droids they’re looking for” as a negative.


One reader (the lovely Sandy) on Goodreads stated, “What I don’t like is the attitude I’ve observed toward KU readers by default.”

Sorry it took me so long to respond!
Yes, Shelly will be getting her own book as part of the Winston Brothers series. :-)


message 17: by Amy

Amy Just re-read Neanderthal Seeks Human and am re-reading its sequel now. Coming across Shelly (Quinn's sister) again reminded me how I loved her character. She seems very interesting; someone I'd love to read more about, if you know what I mean *wink, wink*
Any chances Shelly will get a book of her own?


message 16: by Helen

Helen Will happily ever ninja been available in paperback from Amazon UK sometime? What in PB as i have all the others in paperback.
Will there be any more stories for Quinn and Janey as they are my favourites?


message 15: by Lyza

Lyza Dear Penny,

Thank you for clicking that button and accepting my friend request. You made me absolutely overjoyed!!! I won't probably sleep easily tonight (time check - 11:19 PM) :))
It's so coincidental since I just finished reading AGAIN Neanderthal Seeks Human (this 1AM). I am currently re-reading Neanderthal Marries Human (i was done 2 days ago) since most of the quotes I highlighted were lost so I gotta do it again~ because there's a lot of valuable lesson on relationships and marriage that can be truly applied in the real world (and I can mostly relate with Janie in that book - where relationship needs to experience 'famine' before leveling it up).
Anyway,
Thank you!
Salamat!
Arigatou Gozaimasu!
Keep up the amazing work and continue to making us, readers, in awe of Chemistry, Knitting and Beards!
XOXO


Stacey is Sassy Hey Penny, thanks for accepting. I'll be starting Truth or Beard today.

Thank you my lovely :-) ♥

Gemma It's the 30th of April and I'm so ecstatic! Finally! Can you guess why? Yes! You're right it's pay day Thursday. joke! April 30th means the release of EOA 2 (heat)! Awww

No problem! It's always nice to have more friends... as long as they don't want to borrow money. >:-|"


Darn, I guess I can skip my "ask the author" question.

Amy This is depressing. I am depressed. I don't feel like reading anything else even though I have at least twenty books from my reading list on my NOOK. But I.just.don't.want.to.read.anything.post.TheHooker&TheHermit! (picture a 6 year old throwing a temper tantrum and that's me right now)


message 10: by Amy

Amy Penny! So I got the Hooker and the Hermit as soon as it was out. But I haven't started it. Because if I do, I'll devour it and then where will I be? Without any more of your books left to read, that's where.
Yes, this is a sad, sad state to be in (not to mention, slightly disturbing). There is no way I'm not reading The Hooker & The Hermit until March (until Elements of Chemistry is out, that is) but I'm hoping that a demonstration of how bereft I'll be before I get my next fix would be an effective passive-aggressive way for me to urge you write faster.


Almita Hi Penny, thanks for accepting the friend invite. I am looking forward to read your new series. Happy new year!

Amy YOU ARE AWESOME! I've read Neanderthal Seeks Human and Neanderthal Marries Human and the banter between your characters, the dialogue is un-freaking-believable! I don't even know how awesome your head space would have to be for you can come up with dialogue that you've had.:D
Definitely going to be reading more of your books. And just in case I didn't make it clear, you are awesome!!

Oh, goodness- thank you for the review! I am also a fan of "dirty" books (although I prefer to think of them as anatomically explicit...;-)) I really struggled when I was writing mine with whether I was going to go into detail or write with minimal detail (like I eventually ended up doing). Your comments made me feel much better about my decision.

I am so pleased you enjoyed the book!! Sincerely, Penny

Jexa Hey Penny! Thanks for the friend request. Loved, loved, LOVED your book!!!!!
