For the past few months I've received hundreds of very concerned emails from readers expressing not only their sympathy at the loss of my pen name, but also their sadness that I was no longer writing. I've heard from cancer patients who say immersing themselves in Kingdom during chemo is the only way they've gotten through things, and others who've told me that Kingdom helped them to get through the grief of losing loved ones.
I had no idea that Kingdom had become so personal for so many of you, it's humbled me and made me reflect a lot about a lot of things.
I wanted to set the record straight here, I am writing. It is who I am, and what I do. I love what I do. I realize that because I was so sad that I failed to mention that fact to you all. Because of this I have decided to release one final Marie Hall book, A Pirate's Dream, Kingdom book #11. If you want to know more about the future of Kingdom then make sure to read the author's notes as I'll go more in depth about what's happening with that world, but suffice it to say, Kingdom is far from over. I am still working on the Queens stories.
It is important to me that you all are aware this was not a gimmick. The Marie Hall brand is dead, but, there has been so much confusion that I felt I needed to clear things up for all of you. Today I'll be putting the finishing touches on A Pirate's Dream and within the next 2 weeks the book will be up for sale wherever ebooks are sold.
I am truly sorry for any confusion I may have caused you all before and hope that at the end of the day, you will continue to think kindly of me.
