Vanessa, thank you very much for the artwork (which I have posted below). I love that picture.
Simon, Marcus and Lily’s adventure is just beginning and Hawkin is definitely going to be acting somewhat crazy and vengeful to get his daughter back safely. Soldier Boy is not only going to be a story about Simon, Marcus, Lily and their coming-of-age tale but it is also about the Mogue and what the soldiers will do to protect their own. It is going to be a bit darker, a bit more magical and mythical than The Flower Girl but I hope it all turns out the way I am imagining it.
Thank you very much to Vanessa and to everyone for reading this story and hopefully, enjoying it as well.
More than Anyone is also going to be seeing some editing and even more fleshing out into a long novel-type story. I am going to add more with Toby and Olivia and Ben and his conflict with his ex-girlfriend, Jillian as well as include an epilogue of sorts with Ben and Olivia getting to know one another in the bedroom since I know many were dying for a love scene between the two.
Also, in case you missed the previous post, chapter three of Soldier Boy is also posted so check that out if you want.
I have noticed that not many people visit this blog anymore, traffic severely down than what it used to be, and I know that I have lost readers along the way so I am thinking about giving the blog a makeover or maybe... abandoning it completely. I am not sure what I am going to do but thank you to everyone who does visit this blog. I put probably almost as much work into it as I do into my stories so it does mean a lot to me. Thank you to everyone who does stick by me through everything. I am certain that if I did not have you, I would not be putting as much time into writing as I do and therefore, I would not be doing something I love to do so much. Thank you for everything.

In the meantime, Rise Against is one of my favorite bands and Swing Life Away is one of my favorite songs. Whenever I listen to it, I immediately think of my stories and the couples I have created over the years. If you are curious, I am posting the song below so you can listen to it if it interests you. I hope everyone has had a good Monday. I am in an excellent mood today and I hope this streak of inspiration continues with the stories I have going at the moment.

*Update: Thank you very much to Nyah for the pictures found below. I have pictures for the friends and for, of course, Poppy and Justin but I never had actors/models in mind for these characters so thank you, Nyah, for taking the time to find these for me. I think Julie Christie is perfect for Kim Aldridge though - just because Kim is supposed to be an older mom and she and the actor/model I chose for Justin actually look alike. Of course, everyone can imagine the characters however they like and these are for just those who enjoy visuals.

*I just wanted to clarify something because it seems that some readers are confused. This story takes place in 1952. I thought I had made that clear throughout the chapters but I suppose it was not as clear as I thought it was. I just did not want people to be confused anymore. Thank you.
Though I am going to take a few days before I update again just to collect myself, I am going to continue working on A Pocketful of Poppies and When Night is Almost Done. When these two stories are completed, I am going to continue my work with Soldier Boy as well as start on a new story that has been in my head for some time now. I have posted the summary below so please let me know what you think. It is going to be a mixture of family drama and romance and while working on the first chapter, I have already fallen in love with my newest main character, Hamlet Abernathy.
Have a lovely Wednesday.
Quarter-Life Crisis by Kate
Hamlet is twenty-five and has just been fired from his job with no idea what else he wants to do with his life. On top of that, his parents are getting a divorce, his father wants to start dating again, his sister is getting out of rehab and moving in with him, and he finds himself falling for Rebecca, his best friend’s ex-girlfriend.

I hope everyone has had a fantastic Monday and I just want to thank everyone for the warm responses I have been getting for A Pocketful of Poppies and When Night is Almost Done. I hope you all know just how amazing you are and how much I appreciate and adore every single one of you.
