As some of you may now, the past several months I've been very busy with rewriting my first full-sized novel.

I'm very proud of the result I accomplished, the source file increased from 113 pages to a stunning 177. Some of the chapters trippled or even quadrupled in size, and overall the story has a much higher quality now. My skills have really improved since I wrote the original story. My editors also helped me find a lot of mistakes and fix them, which further contributes to the higher quality of the story. I hope to see this reflected in my technical score, but I realise that it remains up to the discretion of the readers to decide about that. ;-)

For those of you who read the original story, you might want to give the new version a read as well, I think you'll like the changes. One of the most noteable changes is the way the story ends, but you'll have to find that out for yourself.

Another big change in the story is that I had to increase John's age from 15 to 18. This was an unfortunate side effect of the publishing guidelines outside of SOL. Still, I like how the story came out and I hope you'll enjoy the new version too.

My next big project will move me away from erotica and into urban fantasy. I'm planning to write a series of novels next, but much of it is currently only in the planning stages. I also have two ideas in particular for a next erotic work that I want to work on between my big project, and of course there is still 'The Maze Experiment' as well. Currently TME is on hold, but I that doesn't mean I've given up on that story. I still have a lot of ideas that I want to add in that story, and I do intend to continue with it later on, however, currently there is no telling when.

Feel free to send me feedback on Forbidden Love as the story progresses and new chapters are getting uploaded. I love to hear what people think of the story!
