Readers are such wonderful motivation

I got the most delightful piece of mail yesterday. A lady who's read all my books on her e-reader recommended them to a co-worker who then bought a set for herself. Another co-worker heard them discussing the books, wanted to try them, and got the full set in paperback. She's now lent the set to yet another co-worker...

They sent me this lovely picture, which I'm posting with their permission:



It's readers like these who keep me going when it all becomes a struggle.

  3. Either from Lulu: http://stores.lulu.com/shaynep

    or Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Shayne-Parkinson/e/B003RF8LDI/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1

    Amazon only has the first three books, though.

  4. A Kindle is on it's way to me for Christmas, Shayne. I'm so excited and will be straight over to Lulu and Amazon to download all your books!

  5. Oh, that's great, Diana! Congratulations on the Kindle - and thanks so much.

    FYI: I'm not yet in the Kindle store, but the books are available in Kindle format on Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/shaynep

  7. I loved all four books. The last one has kind of an open ending again (like the first two). Are you working on another sequel? I wish you would! I miss Amy.

  8. Thanks so much, Gudrun! And yes, I certainly am working on another book. It begins a few years after the last one finished, and the younger characters have more of a role, but you'll see the familiar ones, too.

    I loved hearing that you miss Amy. I'd miss her, too, if I was away from writing for too long!
