THANK YOU!

Oops! Sorry this is late! I've been so consumed with making my deadline for my upcoming Just One Night Erotic Fiction Trilogy that I've sort of blanked on everything else.

But as it so happens, I do have something to blog about today.  I just got some recent sales figures from Audible.com for all the Sophie audio books (from Sex, Murder & A Double Latte on up). I LOVE that so many people are still discovering Sophie for the first time after all these years and for those of you who met her way back in 2005 and continue to stay with her...well, "thank you," doesn't quite cover it.

Those who know me are aware that I'm frequently stressed about money. I'm a single mom of a truly brilliant, kind-hearted child who does have some special needs, I live in Los Angeles, I'm paying for an individual health insurance plan and...well all that is just crazy expensive. People in my situation are usually on welfare and/or living with their parents.

I'm not. And that's mostly because of you.

Without you Sophie wouldn't still be alive today, I wouldn't have gotten the contract to write the erotic fiction for Simon & Schuster, I wouldn't have been able to sell a TV script (didn't air but STILL) and I'd probably be living with my parents, crying into a glass of wine every night (wine that would have had to come out of a box because I wouldn't be able to afford the Trader Joe's $3.99 stuff) and buying Prozac in bulk from Canada.

In short, I owe you everything.

So from me and my son, thank you and Sophie sure as hell thanks you. You've saved her more times than Anatoly (and if you don't get that reference...well, I got a book I'd like to sell you).

Kyra I was so happy to discover your Sophie Books this year. So glad I found this Killer Fiction blog because not only discovered you, but also other writers.
Looking forward to your next book, and may the New Year bring you even BIGGER success. You deserve it. I have recommended your books to my friends who are avid readers and they have enjoyed Sophie's adventures, also.
Raising a glass of wine to you, hopefully next year you will be stress free.

WOW, Kyra, I am honored to count myself among your loyal (if very new) fans! I am on tenterhooks for the next Sophie, and I am so enjoying getting to know you through Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest --isn't technology fun?

I know what you mean about having to buy your own healthcare, my hubby and I have our own business --just us 2-- so we have to buy our own health Ins. I am a special case because of a heart problem years ago, and our health ins. premiums are more than our house payment!!

Here's to much better times for all of us --I'll always buy your books!
Love you bunches!!!
