A Fond Farewell

from Vivienne Lorret

Judith and Sarah warmly welcomed me to the Genre-istas three years ago and I've had a wonderful experience being with every one of you each month.

It's a big family here. Not only that, but the monthly themes that Sarah and Judith suggest us are always interesting and thought provoking, flexing different parts of my writing muscles, like yoga for the mind. Being a Regency romance author, it's easy to get tunnel vision and keep all of my ideas in the early 19th century.Yet with these different monthly posts, I'm able to climb out of the "usual workday" mindset and stretch into something new.

So it is with a sad heart to tell you that I am leaving RTG. At least, on a regular basis. I will, however, return to "guest" post from time to time.

I want to thank each and every one of you for sharing this experience with me. I also want to thank Judith and Sarah for being kind enough to invite me into this amazing group of writers. <3

I'll miss you!

Wishing you all the best,

We'll miss you, too, Viv!

I'm glad RTG was able to support your career over the last three years. Careers evolve and I'm so glad yours has flourished!

I'm looking forward to your return visits as a guest author.

Ditto what Sarah said, Viv. You will be missed! And don't wait to be invited. If you have a holiday romance coming out in the future, let us know. That Guest Theme is permanently set for November. And we are always looking for "What's New in Publishing" posts in December. Especially if you have an 'aha' or note something you've done that is working, we'd love to have you guest with us and share.

So glad you continue to write because I love your books!
