Hey guys! Remember when I said I was deleting my Wattpad come June? Well... July is almost over and I'm still here  just wanted to let you know that The Six Swans hit 170k! Welcome to all my new readers!
      No promises as to how long I'll still be here but I just can't seem to let Wattpad go so I'm hanging around for a little longer  have a great week!

It's a shame you're leaving this site. Your version of The Six Swans was FANTASTIC. You are a really skilled writer -  The Characters were great, the story was riveting, and you're great at eliciting a strong emotional reaction from readers such as myself. I loved your work - don't give up writing!
It's really sad to hear that your leaving. I love your version of the Six Swans. I've always wanted to do a version of the tale myself, but yours is the best I've read to date!
      I understand why you want to delete your works, but is there some way I could preserve a private copy of this work past June 1, because I love it!
Dear Wonderful Followers,
      Well hello there! It has been a LONG time since you've gotten a message from me. And if some of you've forgotten who I am, I'm the author of THE SIX SWANS. I just got back from an 18 month hiatus while living in the Philippines. 
      Thank you for all of the support for my work and especially for The Six Swans. It has been awesome to be a part of Wattpad for the past few years. I truly have enjoyed my experience as reader and writer. But my time on here has ended - for various reasons I have decided to delete my account and remove my works from the website. 
      If you would still like to read The Six Swans, or my other two works, Psyche and The Stark Truth, they will remain online until June 1.
      Thanks again for all your support! Leave a comment or send me a message - I'd love to hear from you.

I really enjoyed your book the six swans, it was my all time favourite fairy tale anyway but I liked the twist you did on the story. just one question though. surely Logan would have had some kind of reaction that she was a princess, especially when she reacted the way she did when she found out about him being a prince? thanks for writing the book!!
