The Puma has Left the Forest
Hello, my lovelies! It's been a long time since I've written anything for Twilight, and I wanted to send you an update. After a number of years, I've made the difficult decision to pull most of my fanfic down.
If you've arrived here because you were hoping to read Facebook Friends, I'm sorry to disappoint you. It's had a long, wonderful run and I was glad to share it with so many fans. I am astonished that even now, a number of years after it was released, it still receives hundreds of reads per month and has been read more than 1.5 million times!
With that said, I am looking to reclaim my work. I now write original fiction under the pen name Kilby Blades. I have taken some of my shorter fanfiction and reworked them into novels with original characters, new elements…in many cases, they have transformed into completely different books.
Before I sign off for good, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all my readers. The love I've received over the years from this and other fandoms I write in has astonished me. In the Twilight fandom alone, I've been favorited nearly 6,000 times and received 5,000 reviews. In many ways, it was my fanfic following that gave me the confidence to publish original fiction. IT has flattered and humbled me beyond belief!
So, here are my hopes:
That if you like my writing, you will come see what I have cooking as Kilby Blades and hang out with me on Instagram or Facebook, because I'm usually procrastinating anyway.
That if we were friends way back before I had kids and was a more active member of the fandom that you please tag me/e-mail me/PM me, or do whatever you and drop a hello. I would LOVE to hear from you! Also, if you are super curious what I've been up to, I wrote a blog post about it on my web site.
Again, thanks so much for reading!
