My romantic Young Adult novella Passing Notes comes out in just a few more days! Eek! I’m celebrating the release of my story (which is largely about a boy learning to write a love letter) by inviting other YA and NA authors to create love letters based on the characters from their novels. Today’s guest is Alice J. Black, a fellow Fire and Ice author, whose first Young Adult novel The Doors was released just a few months ago. It sounds like a fun, spooky read, and I’m eager to read it.
When she is moved halfway down the country during the summer holidays, Amanda finds she's stuck in a place that she not only hates but where it never seems to stop raining. Godfrey Hall, their new home, is a dark, cold place that she can't seem to adjust to. The worst room is the dining room where a set of mosaic doors seems to draw her in despite the fact that she despises it. The first day her parents are both out, Amanda finds out the true secret of the mosaic doors and nothing will stop her opening the shrine made for a man hundreds of years before her.
From the moment I saw you in that art guild across the chaotic mess that Arthur had created, I knew that there was something there. I couldn't take my eyes off you and if I recall, you couldn't resist looking my way either. The blush you had then was so cute. I just wanted to scoop you up and tell you not to worry. I wanted you right from the start.
The moment I realized where you were, I knew I had to come and get you. I had no idea how I was going to do it or if it was even possible, but something deep inside told me I had to save you. I had to do everything I could possibly try. If we hadn't managed to work out where you were, I would have been lost. It may sound stupid, and I may come across as being a cliché, but it's true. I know you felt it too. My life would have been empty even after sharing such a brief moment of time with you.
Finding you was one of the most important days of my life and now, I have the chance to make many more with you. You make my life complete. You are my family now, and I'm your past and your future.
All my love,
