There were times when I was writing Trial by Desire when I really didn’t know why I was doing it. It was a really, really hard book to write. There were parts that felt like sending little splinters of bamboo up my fingernails. When I finished, I told Mr. Milan that if I ever had to write a book like that again, I was going to quit writing altogether because it just wasn’t worth it.
For the most part, I don’t comment on reviews, or on reader discussions. But Google Alerts sends me snippets…. And so this blog post is for everyone who has talked about this book online, or e-mailed me, or tweeted someone that they had to read this book… I just want to say thank you.
There were definitely times when it felt like this book was not worth the agony of writing it.
I don’t feel like that now.
