I AM SO EXCITED!!! MY EDITOR DID AN AMAZINGGGGGGGGG JOB ON “I Shouldn’t Feel This Way” You guys are going to be BLOWN away by this revised version. It’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better! By the way… she LOVED the story and would like to edit book two  
#IShouldn'tFeelThisWay #ISFTW #SoPsyched#Noaria♥ 
She suggested that my story would fit under the sub category: romance/suspense romance/thriller/erotica 
My next step? Hire my graphic designer for the book cover! (it will take 10 days to complete once she starts) 
Billy, I love u  Thank you for helping me through this every step of the way  And to everyone else who has been there from the get go and throughout, THANK YOU for your genuine support and for believing in me :’) 
Noah and Aria are so close to my heart, even though they are fictional characters, but I am so happy to be able to share their love story with the world. This project started out as an experiment and turned out to be something I never expected. I’m grateful for all the wonderful friendships I’ve made along the way, my amazing fanbase of devoted readers, if not for you, this story would never have got written this far :’)

Keeps misspelling in email “Sweetes Sins”. Not sure if this is a bug. Will try to fix it.

"Hi Lexi, I was wondering if you could say something abouth the length of the entire story of ISLTW? In comparison with everything what you've posted on Lush, could you tell me how long the rest of the story will be (maybe percentage of the number of pages to come compared to the whole book)? Just curious, because I really love the story so far, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the full book!"

Hey lovely reader :)

I would be more than happy to update you. The length of ISFTW is 550 pages, approximately 137, 000 words. It took my friend about a week to read the full book. I’m sure some of you may breeze through much faster depending on how much time you devote to it haha. 

ISLTW is 450 pages and roughly 102,000 words. The third book is currently 242 pages, 56,000 words. I am aiming for about 100,000 words, close to the same length of the second book, though it might be longer. 

My editor will be finishing the completed edit of ISFTW in five days and I am so excited because the editing stage will be complete. I have several options now. I could look for an agent and try to get this book marketed in the romance genre and hopefully a publisher will take a chance…

OR, I can self publish as an ebook because this is my first time publishing and the length of the series is just soooooooo long, not to mention the fact that it is extremely controversial.

Based on the advice of trusted friends and experienced acquaintances I have in the field of publishing, they are telling me that my best option is to publish “Loving Lana” as my first book in paperback/hardcover. It’s a nice contemporary romance book that doesn’t put stop signs in front of publishers. It’s a stand alone book and a good way to get my foot through the door and my name out there. I could hold on to my ISFTW series and wait to publish it as my fourth or fifth book, but I really don’t want to make readers wait that long, and I don’t want to put myself at risk of getting plagiarized AGAIN (someone stealing my idea and publishing before me) 

I have the legal copyrights and I could most certainly sue, but who wants to go through that dreadful ordeal? Not me. “Fifty Shades of Grey” was an ebook first before it became so popular and published into paperback. I think the best thing to do would be to self publish ISFTW first, and then focus on completing Loving Lana in the summer and getting that published with a reputable publishing house. 

I truly feel that my ISFTW series deserves to be in paper back/hardcover and sold in bookstores, and I believe that will happen some day, but for now, I have to focus on getting my foot through the door, and starting out with that series will probably get me a lot of rejections. I don’t want my books to be labeled as taboo erotica, because it is not. Noah and Aria’s story is a complex love story, but a beautiful one, in my opinion. 

I’m very thankful for all the consistent support of all you wonderful people. It’s been a heck of a journey and I’ve come a long way. I really want my hard work to pay off, but most of all I want to live my dream which is writing :)
