Wow you guys! I had a really great response to ToC and that really meant a lot to me. To tell you the truth, the story used to be a lot different and it was even under a different name, "Lunchmeat." I showed my friend Alex the first draft I made in a notebook while I was at school. I had written it two years ago and it was supposed to be about Renesmee who worked at the Sandwhich Shack but had an abusive boyfriend, Bryan Newton. Jacob saves her and they end up being friends. At the end, Jacob confesses his love to her and gets shot and killed by Bryan.
Well, I found it over summer break last year and started typing it up. I actually had re-written the story twice because I didn't like the way it came out the first time! It was a lot of work but it's the first Fic here I finished that I'm really proud of. I got sooooo much amazing feedback that I started writing a sequel before I even counted the reviews! I was excited and happy and I around 3 or 4 chapters written.
Then I re-read those chapters and I realized... Wow, that was awful. So, I re-read ToC because I needed to remember the Nessie and Jake I made this time around. I was slacking a lot and even started writing a new fic which sucked sooooooo bad I had to delete the whole thing from my computer. But, since I finished reading ToC again, I've been struck with this amazing inspiration. I pulled out a notebook and figured out the whole outline. It took me a whole night without sleep to write that thing and I re-wrote it almost 12 times! But, I finally came up with something and I'm finally starting to write the sequel to ToC!
I'm giving you guys this really long Author's Note because I've been getting a lot of PM's and emails about if there's a sequel and when I would be posting. I figure, this is a good way to let everyone know altogether!
I'm planning on having my first chapter up on August 3rd.
I know it's a long time to wait but I have to write a few chapters so I get the groove of things back and I want to make sure that if I delete/re-write certain chapters I'll have time to replace them before I publish.
Thank you to everyone for all the support, reviews, great things to say, and all the love I've been getting. I have a handful of new followers on Twitter from FF and it really means a lot to me. Especially mjTuazon (on twitter) who asks me almost every day about the sequel! Also, to MaDiWedener for following me and being sweet as well! There's a huge amount of people I'd like to mention but I don't really have time right now, I know it's terrible of me not to thank most of the people who have stuck with me from the begining but I can't remember everyone and I don't have a list of them! I really want to thank Alex even if she was laggin' in reviews for the last, like, 6 chapters! She's my biggest inspiration and she keeps me writing with violence and life threats so all of you guys should really be thanking her and my good friend Rachel who chased me out of her house and then tackled me when I wasn't writing regularly!
It's been a great journey and I can't wait to show you what's going to happen to our beloved Jacob and Renesmee!
I'm confident you guys will love it!
Thank you for reading this ridiculously long A/N!

OH YEAH! For my next fic I'll be using this thing called Polyvore that Alex introduced me to! So, keep a lookout for that soon!
Hugs & Much love, have a safe summer!
