The Prettiest Thing and Ghetto Gospel

Thank you so much to Alessandra for making me the fanart I requested for The Prettiest Thing and Ghetto Gospel. Thank you for taking the time and doing those for me. It means a lot to me. I am working on chapter two of Ghetto Gospel and chapter nine of The Prettiest Thing, though judging from the lack of reviews I received for chapter eight, I don't know if this story is what people want anymore. I know everyone is busy in their lives but I hope it doesn't take too long to review for me and let me know if you like the chapter or hate it.

I know everyone says that I need to write for me and I do write for me but if only a handful of people are going to review chapters I post, what's the point of me taking the time out to write and post stories? I'm sorry. I sound like such a bitch right now. I'm going to blame that on lack of sleep. I just want people to review my stories for me. I love feedback. I crave it and it inspires me to write the next chapter all the more faster. Thank you to everyone who has reviewed both of these stories for me. It really does mean the world to me. I love writing and I love these two stories immensely. I just hope everyone else does too. Have a great Thursday everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!

kate, don't l'et lack of reviews bring you down!! You have so many people reading & enjoying your wonderful stories and i'd hate to see you stop because of lack of reviews. You will always have us readers to love your stories, we love them because you write them to please yourself not others.

As I always say, you are amazing and please don't give up on us.

Love
Alessandra.

Hey! You can't let the little amount of reviews bring you down. You're a great writer and you have lots of faithful readers that love your stories.

I loved the last two chapters of The Prettiest Thing. I really like Lyla's character and her relationship with her siblings. Really cute!
Btw, I'm really looking forward to the next chapter of Ghetto Gospel! It's an unusual story that I think it's going to be really good. :D

Thank you so much for your updates.

Hé don't let little lack of review bring you down ^^ I suppose you prefer to have few readers who love you and always review with big messages, than lots of people who doesn't say anything interesting .... no???.. well OK lol !
But seriously you must always know that you have faithful readers, even though I was studying this week so I couldn't really review ...

Hey Kate,

Happy Valentine's Day! I have no doubt people still love "The Prettiest Thing" because look at the hits. Sometime people need to be reminded to review or they don't review right away. Give them time. Whatever the reason is threatening to not continue the story usually works too:) Get away from the computer and go have a super duper Valentine's Day dinner with your husband or something of that nature. Thank you so much for taking the time to write.

Hey, it's okay - everyone is entitled to a few "bitchy" moments - don't sweat it.

My two cents worth is that your stories are good. You know that and your readers know that.

I understand that reviews are important to you but threatening to give up writing strikes me as a rather drama filled decision. You love to write, your good at it, and you have many, many more fans then most others of this on-line genre so don't be discouraged!!!

I personally have reviewed 75% of your work over the years - you haven't always been happy with everyone of my comments but I keep reading and reviewing because I think you and your stories are worth it, you've got to believe that too regardless of the number of reviews you get.

Have a good night! Can't wait to read (and review) the next chapter of the Prettiest Thing!! You're a very entertaining/interesting author, one I have great respect for - keep up the wonderful work!
