I've edited out around 10,000 words from Olivia, and let me explain why. Firstly, I realised a year after first publishing the story, the somewhat graphic sex scenes tended to take something away from the love story and underlying life lessons both Olivia North and Andrew Walker experienced. Of course sex had to be part of the story, however, it needed to be in the context of a natural extension of the relationship they developed, and nothing more. Secondly, I continue to look for ways to improve my writing and I believe I have done so by cutting out text superfluous to the flow of the story.
This story is so close and dear to my heart. I love the characters and I love the setting for the story. I know the locations well and each has a special place in my heart.
I hope new readers will enjoy Olivia's story and come to enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed the process of writing and polishing what I truly believe is a great love story. Many will also see the lessons in the story that may make us think more deeply about our own lives. Click here or on the pic to visit Awakening Olivia North on Amazon.
