It’s hard sometimes to express gratitude sincerely without coming across as trite or blase. There is no inflection with the written word and even as a writer it sometimes feels daunting to say thank you without appearing to be insincere, and that coupled with being British makes it even harder.
So, with that in mind, please know this is said with genuine feeling:
Thank you so much for the overwhelming feedback. The messages, emails, contacts and PM’s have just been incredible and the support readers from all over the world are showing is off the chart. I cannot ever express how much it means.
I read every email and message but there are so many now that I just can’t reply to all of them. I do try, I really do but the publisher has deadlines so it means it’s not always possible. I feel awful about that and I am sorry if I haven’t written back.
Extracted did far better than we ever thought it would. Miles better. It was a long journey from the first draft to the book going out with a ton of ups and downs but blimey it was worth it. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I get that and I’m cool with that. Not every book will please every reader, nor should it.
The other thing I wanted to say is a huge welcome to the all the new readers of The Undead which has seen a big uptake since Extracted and Executed were released. The Undead is entirely self-published so please do forgive my copious amounts of errors and mistakes.
A lot of the emails and messages are asking about the next books in The Undead and Extracted and also when the next Undead audio are coming out.
The third book in the Extracted series has been written. It has to go through edits and stuff but as soon as I know any dates for release I’ll post and let you know. You can always sign up to my website and I’ll send an update from that if it helps, or find me on FB (rrhaywood).
There will be another Undead (22) just as soon as I can get to writing it.
The next batch of Undead audio are in production with Audible now (narrated by Joe Jameson), including Blood on the Floor (narrated by Rachel Hine).
Part 14, 15 and 16 will be released on 11th July.
Blood on the Floor will be released on 18th July.
Blood on the Floor can be enjoyed separately, or listen to it in between Part 15 and Part 16 if you are following the main series.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the time travel competitions on Facebook and on my site. The last winner has been chosen….
There were 24 entries on the last blog post. Random.org has chosen number 6 – Fiona Nicol! Well done. Drop me a line with your details and I’ll send you signed copies of Extracted and Executed.
Righto, well I’d better get back to it. Again thank you so very much for your kind words and messages, they give an enormous boost and mean more than you will ever know.
