Hi Amanda!
I have not got anything planned as far as a sequel to my books go. I do want to write an epilogue to How I Lost You (a couple of characters do show up in The Truth About Us briefly) I just have to find the time to write it. Le sigh. :) (less)

Hi Amanda,
Great to hear from you. It's sweet of you to ask! And notice! I don't have a publisher anymore as Sourcebooks chose not to publish my new books. I have a few things I've worked on, but nothing is done yet.

I'll be finishing up a new book next year, I've taken a bit of a break from writing. I'll let you know when it's ready to read!!

Thanks! Much love,

Janet (less)

I've also been on a whirl of jobs over the last year. Exactly one year ago I left a perfectly lovely full ti... Read more of this blog post »
