I spent most of my mostly sleepless (thanks to the baby) night rereading Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon. The thing that struck me (other than the fact that I’ve been wanting to reread that whole series for a month or two) was how much it still captivated me. I knew how everything ended and still it sucked me in and kept me reading. Still I cried during the emotional parts. And I was thinking about that and realised that that’s my goal. I don’t care if I sell a million books or just one. But I want that one to be a book that’s just as captivating and enthralling as the first time, every time. And I want the first time to be one of those experiences where you stay up long after your eyes begged you to go to sleep, just because you needed to know what happened next.
I think I could die happy if I could just do that.
