Brownie points if you know you said that quote.
The one thing I love about being a writer is making people feel all sorts of emotion, whether good or bad. I honestly feel that if I could create dialogue, I’ve done my job. Well, I was successful in creating dialogue but I think I was equally successful in creating ambiguity, which was by accident.
I’ll announce the winners of the free giveaway later on today on the Facebook page but let’s clear up a couple of things re Where I Wanna Be since there seems to be so much confusion:
1. Simone and Eli decided cut off ties, which leads to…
2. The relationship (not affair) doesn’t continue. So one could easily say…
3. Eli doesn’t know about Simone’s secret. And that’s because…
4. Simone left New York.
Please re-read the epilogue. Why does Simone mention two, and not three, of Eli’s children? If she knew about two, one would assume she would know about the third one, yes? Except the third one wasn’t mentioned. Why was that?
Again, I’m available for discussions in any book club that wants to host me. I’ll be hosting my private chat exclusive only to the Wine Club members in a few weeks. I am a little surprised that so many are drawing conclusions without asking the author for clarification. If Where I Wanna Be really made you upset, wait until you see what I have in store for the sequel later this year. Oh yes, there’s a part two. 🙂
Now this is the part for those who understood the book…

And one last quote for the day:
To be great, you have to be willing to be mocked, hated, and misunderstood.
And there you have it,
